It’s going down.
Soulja Boy and Bow Wow are set to face off in an upcoming edition of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s Verzuz series. Soulja Boy made the announcement on Saturday (May 22), but Verzuz has yet to reveal a date for the matchup.
“Soulja Boy vs Bow wow #verzuz it’s official 🔥👀,” Soulja tweeted.
The rappers have collaborated before on songs like “Marco Polo” and even released a full project, 2016’s Ignorant Shit.
Soulja recently joked that Bow Wow was “scared” to battle him. “Bow Wow scared of me, man. You see when Romeo said something, he jumped right on it but as soon as they said Big Draco name, Bow Wow be quiet as hell making up all types of excuses, man. Bow Wow knows what’s up with me, man,” Soulja told Tampa Bay’s Wild 94.1.
While they remain friends, Soulja Boy is ready to bring the smoke. “That’s my boy, though. I love Bow Wow, you know what I’m saying? That’s like my friend in real life. That’s like my real brother, but when it comes to Verzuz and all that, stop playing Bow Wow.”
Romeo previously challenged Bow Wow to a Verzuz battle, prompting a response from Bow. “You sure you want this smoke? i see you calling me out. You sure this what you want to do?” he responded on Twitter.
You sure you want this smoke? i see you calling me out. You sure this what you want to do? #VERZUZ
