On Tuesday (July 28) it was announced on Verzuz’s official Instagram page that Rick Ross and 2 Chainz will be the next two artists to go head to head in a Verzuz battle. “Y’all will see very clear how it makes sense ‼️‼️” Swizz Beatz commented underneath the announcement. “[Rick Ross] vs [2 Chainz] The High Rollers Edition #Verzuz‼️ Thursday, August 6th, 8 PM ET, on our IG and [Apple Music] Drinks by [Ciroc],” the announcement read.

Rick Ross and 2 Chainz Verzuz battle will follow the highly lauded battle by DMX and Snoop Dogg, which garnered over 1.4 million viewers. The battle between Snoop Dogg and DMX was also deemed a fan-favorite of the battle series.

As we previously reported, on Wednesday (July 22), during DMX and Snoop Dogg’s Verzuz battle Keyshia Cole invited Ashanti to go head to head with her in a future Verzuz battle. “Ashanti [what’s] good?” Keyshia Cole simply asked Ashanti in the comment section of DMX and Snoop Dogg’s battle, and now Ashanti has responded.

Apparently, Ashanti is down to do the battle. She responded to Keyshia Cole in the comment section, writing, “[Keyshia Cole] what upppppp.” The “Foolish” singer also discussed the possibility with her good friend and collaborator Fat Joe.

Ashanti and Fat Joe discussed the situation via Instagram Live. “Keyshia Cole, would that be a great one?” Fat Joe asked Ashanti. “Listen, if they want to see it. I ain’t mad,” Ashanti replied before Fat Joe said, “Ooooooooooo,” and chuckled.

As we also previously reported, Mya recently stated that she’s open to doing a Verzuz battle. During an interview with BBC Sounds, the “All About Me” singer said, “I’m always open. Especially now, shows and touring has been canceled until 2021.”

“I watched quite a few Verzuz battles and it doesn’t feel like a battle at all, more like a friendly artist camaraderie and respect. I think it’s genius. Very entertaining, people are very excited about culture coming together, especially now. So, I’m totally down,” Mya continued.
