Soulja Boy and Bow Wow are set to face off in an upcoming edition of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland's Verzuz series.
Hours after Bow Wow teased a June 26 date for the battle on social media, Soulja Boy took to Twitter on Saturday to make the announcement official. Neither Swizz Beatz nor Timbaland has confirmed the Verzuz matchup yet, but Swizz did share Soulja’s tweet on his IG Stories.
Shortly after Soulja Boy confirmed the battle, Bow Wow took to Instagram to respond.
"Soulja, I have so many No. 1s," Bow Wow said in an Instagram video. "If you go on Google right now and you type in 'Rappers with the most No. 1s,' you will see Drake first, Eminem, Lil Wayne. I’m on a list with a lot of greats. There ain’t a lot of us."
The announcement arrives just a few days after Soulja Boy claimed Bow Wow was scared to face off against him in a battle. "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," Soulja told Tampa Bay’s Wild 94.1.
Romeo previously challenged Bow Wow to a Verzuz battle, prompting a response from Bow Wow. "You sure you want this smoke? I see you calling me out. You sure this is what you want to do?" the 34-year-old rapper wrote in a Twitter post last week.
