American legendary rapper, Jay-Z has replied his colleague Rick Ross who suggested a verzuz battle between them.
Earlier, the “Gold Roses” rapper said there was a possibility they’d battle during an appearance on The Real earlier this month.
Ross said “JAY-Z… Yeah! Why not? To me, that’s what makes Verzuz special because it brings out the best in both parties. That’s a possibility, but I gotta give my flowers to the big homie.”
However during a recent Twitter Spaces conversation with singer Alicia Keys, 52-year-old JAY-Z said “no one” can compete against him.
He said; “No disrespect… everyone’s amazing. No one can stand on that stage with me. There’s not a chance in hell. I don’t care how long it is.
“You got to stand in front of the ‘Grammy Family Freestyle’ live? No one has ever even seen me perform that, you got to stand in front of that? That ain’t never going to happen.”
Verzuz was created by rappers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. Through the entertainment platform producers, songwriters and artists compete against each other.
Last month, JAY-Z made history as the artist with the most Grammy nominations.
The rapper received three more nominations from the Recording Academy on Tuesday, bringing his total count to 83.
