A fake poster of a Verzuz face-off between Lil Durk and Chief Keef made it to the Internet which sparked a debate between the hip-hop fans as to who will take the crown if it happens in real. While some said nobody could “f**k” with Chief Keef from the 2012-13 era others stayed loyal to Durk’s discography from 2020. Speaking of Verzuz battles, fans in the past have thoroughly enjoyed the battles between Monica and Brandy, Snoop Dogg and the late DMX, Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle, Raekwon, and Ghostface Killah, Nelly and Ludacris, Method Man and Redman and Alicia Keys and John Legend, among others.

Lil Durk or Chief Keef: Who will win the Verzuz battle?

The fake flyer of a Verzuz battle between Lil Durk and Chief Keef circulating on the Internet showed the date of September 14, 2021. DJ Akademiks also shared the post on his Instagram account which prompted Verzuz co-founder Swizz Beatz to comment. According to HipHopDX, the renowned music producer teased fans with a series of eye emoticons. On the other hand, Chicago rap historian and FakeShoreDrive‘s Andrew Barber shut down the idea on Twitter saying, “The City of Chicago wouldn’t even let Keef perform in hologram form, there’s no way this is happening at Wrigley Field.”
 
Chief Keef, who hails from Chicago, is known for heading the drill movement in the city. The rapper, who is also fondly known as Sossa, shot to fame with his singles like ‘Love Sosa’, ‘I Don’t Like’ and ‘Hate Bein’ Sober’ among others. Keef was one of the top rappers between 2012 and 2015. Lil Durk, on the other hand, is from the new school movement, who shot to fame in 2020 with his feature on Drake’s ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’. For the unversed, if the Verzuz between Keef and Durk happens for real, it will be up on the official Instagram page of Verzuz. Hip-hop fans will also be able to stream the battle on the Triller app and Fite TV.

‘New Chief Keef isn’t f**king wit new Lil Durk’

Hip-hop fans stormed Twitter as soon as they saw the fake poster doing the rounds on the micro-blogging site. Sparking a debate, one user stated, “Old Chief Keef harder than the old Lil Durk...” Another said, “If you think Chief Keef has a better catalog than Lil Durk then you’re drunk.” Whereas, one user added, “2012-2013 Chief Keef vs 2020-2021 Lil Durk.”
 
The next one posted, “I’ll admit durk is more consistent but durk doesn’t have a single hit that comes close to sosas classics. Sosa has had the best and most known crowd music since he was 16. As far as influence goes Chief Keef is on top as well.” Meanwhile, one tweeted, “None of old Lil Durk F**kin wit old Chief Keef. But None of New Chief Keef f**king wit New Lil Durk.” And, one person shared, “I was never a chief keef fan, I was always a lil durk fan since day one! Smurk is a better rapper and artist!” Another user asserted, “New Chief Keef isn’t f**king wit New Lil Durk and old Lil Durk isn’t even close to f**king with Old Chief Keef.” One user while sharing the fake flyer concluded, “This would be hard.”
