During a Friday appearance on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning, Busta was asked about his proposed Verzuz battle with the ATL rapper. As you probably recall, Busta seemed pretty enthusastic about the face-off and suggested T.I.’s discography was no match for his. The Brooklyn-bred MC made the comments during a recent appearance The Fat Joe Show, where he touched on Tip’s claims that New York City rappers have an advantage in the game.
“T.I., it is intriguing to me that you have such a concern with New York MCs,” Busta said. “I wanna understand what that’s about. But, from one brother that loves you to my brother that knows I love him, I’m begging you to step in the ring with me. I’ma bust yo ass … Come on T.I., let’s have fun.”https://www.youtube.com/embed/SO3-speGvdc?feature=oembed
T.I. shot down the offer in an Instagram video, arguing the generation gap between him and Busta was much too wide. The Ebro in the Morning crew agreed, and suggested Busta take on someone like Snoop Dogg or Missy Elliott.
“Let’s be clear. You said that you didn’t think me and T.I. would be a good Verzuz,” told Ebro. “Direct response to that: Neither do I. It would be uncivil, that ass-beating. But what I’m saying is, I never asked to do a Verzuz with T.I. That’s my brother and I love him, but I never asked to do a Verzuz with him.”
