The battles started at the height of the pandemic in 2020 between Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. While in-person social gatherings plausibly seemed like death wishes, the Instagram livestreams became everyone’s solution to the limitations of lockdown. Soon enough, artists like Brandy, RZA, Babyface and more took to the virtual stage to throw their greatest hits at their opponents. From one livestream came full-throttle productions with cheat sheets on music platforms like Apple Music.
As covid and civil injustices rattled the nation, the Verzuz series provided opportunities for community restoration through music. According to Deadline, Waithe has explained that “Verzuz is more than two artists going song-for-song. It’s the joyful celebration of legacy that we all needed.” Verzuz brought millions of people together and on that premise, it arguably warrants documentation.
However a number of people have voiced their objections against the documentary. After all, Verzuz was supposed to be an organic solution to the cabin fever that many people experienced during lockdown. Now, setups have become filled with advertisements and viewers almost had to set up a Triller subscription plan to watch future scrimmages. With a documentary underway, Verzuz’s magic is consequently gone for many viewers, rightfully so.
The documentary will be available on Prime Video. Release date is currently unknown.

Though Meek says it’s all love, the news comes after his disgruntled tweets back in February towards Atlantic Records. According to the Dreamchasers rapper, Atlantic Records allegedly took Roddy Ricch away from him and prohibited him from releasing music until it had been nine months after his 2021 release, Expensive Pain.
So look I made Atlantic records 100’s of millions and let them rape me out out Roddy a artist they came to me about in jail … they still saying I can’t drop music until 9 months after my last album got blackballed just wrapped buildings and Nina art with talent …— MeekMill (@MeekMill) February 1, 2022

“F*ck it ima take the risk … a million behind every project! All sponsors connected to me or my brand tap in immediately I need y’all for this riskkkk ima take! #NOMAJORLABELVIBES,” he wrote in an Instagram caption.
