It’s going down.
Two of hip-hop’s biggest supergroups, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Three 6 Mafia, are preparing to go head-to-head during an Instagram Live battle, celebrating their musical legacies. The highly-anticipated showdown, dubbed “The Face Off,” will be livestreamed on Thursday, April 30, at 5 p.m. PST.
Since they all can’t be together due to the pandemic, a representative from each group will go live to play their hits. The “King of Memphis” DJ Paul will rep for Three 6 Mafia, while “LeathaFace” Krayzie Bone will compete of behalf of the Thuggish Ruggish.
“This Is Not A Battle. This Is A Celebration Between Homies of Over 50 yrs Combined Dropping Slap!!!” wrote DJ Paul, while Krayzie Bone added, “Celebrating over 50 combined years of hits.”
In honor of the occasion, they plan to launch a limited edition collaborative merch line. “Limited Merch For This Event Will Be Available So Save That Stimmy Check!” said DJ Paul.
Instagram Live challenges have become popular during quarantine. Timbaland and Swizz Beatz’ “Verzuz” series has featured top talent, while attracting hundreds of thousands of viewers. Babyface and Teddy Riley had half-a-million people tuned into their livestream, while Diddy recently teased a potential “Verzuz” battle with Dr. Dre.
