Eminem and DMX are prepared to go head-to-head in a Verzuz rap battle sometime in the near future, according to an Instagram post by rapper N.O.R.E. aka Victor Santiago, Jr.
The reveal comes after N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN asked Fat Joe who he thinks Eminem should go up against in a hypothetical Instagram Live battle. Joe named DMX, calling him ‘legendary’, ‘iconic’, and a ‘superhero’ before adding, ‘DMX got the biggest hits in the world, one of the greatest rappers of all time… And everything I’m saying is understated. He’s bigger than that.’
The battle between Em and DMX hasn’t officially been announced by either Swizz Beatz or Timbaland – the co-creators of Verzuz, a new online series that sees artists battle it out on social media, in a similar way to real-life hip-hop battles — but the wheels are in motion.
