Snoop Dogg and DMX's Verzuz battle was an epic hit, fans want Soulja Boy Vs Bow Wow matchup next
Both Soulja Boy and Bow Wow would be great pairing, considering the pair used to beef with each other back in the day and have even collaborated on a mixtape
The recently-concluded Verzuz Battle between the OG rap legends Snoop Dogg and DMX drew an online audience of over half a million viewers, with fans waxing nostalgic as these West Coast and East Coast icons pitted their best 20 tunes against each other. There were plenty of classics rolled out from their respective catalogs and there were even some tributes paid to late music icons like 2Pac and Aaliyah. Fans were also thrilled by Snoop Dogg's dance moves and DMX's freestyle energy was still as fresh as in his retro heydays. After such a storming success, many fans were calling for another matchup that featured two relatively younger stars — Soulja Boy and Bow Wow. The latter goes by his real name Shad Moss nowadays.
Soulja Boy and Bow Wow would be a perfect pairing, considering the 'Marco Polo' pair used to beef with each other back in the day and have even collaborated on a mixtape together called 'Ignorant S***' which was released in 2016. Prior to that, the duo had posted plenty of videos dissing each other in the past, although they now consider each other friends. So a throwdown between these two hip-hop stars would certainly make for some primetime viewing on the Verzuz IG Battle series, which has now already hosted some incredible billings like Nelly and Ludacris, Mannie Fresh and Scott Storch and Jadakiss and Fabolous.
On social media, fans were projecting the proposed matchup as a battle for the ages, with one Verzuz viewer tweeting, "A Bow Wow and Soulja Boy Verzuz would be fire." Other music lovers chimed in, saying, "BOW WOW VS SOULJA BOY THATS THE ONE WE NEED." Many supporters were quick to point out that their beef videos had been hilariously entertaining, with one fan saying, "That Soulja boy Bow Wow beef was so entertaining lmaoooo." Another fan exclaimed, "Bow Wow n Soulja boy started internet beefing," so a throwdown between these two rappers would make perfect sense.
A lot of hip-hop listeners were also asking for Bow Wow versus Romeo since the pair have beefed in the past, but other fans were quick to point out, "If we being serious, Bow Wow vs. Soulja Boy would be a more serious opponent." Another fan posted, "Yeah man I wanna see Bow Wow and Soulja boy so I can break out my tall tees and slouch socks." As another admirer concluded, "I will pay money to see a Bow Wow/ Soulja Boy Verzuz battle."
It remains to be seen if the Verzuz founders, producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, will listen to the fans' No. 1 request, but if it does happen, it promises to be a no-holds-barred affair.
