Three 6 Mafia or Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, who will win Verzuz battle? Fans angry it's PPV
Fans will have to pay for a multi-cam experience on Triller and FITE when the two iconic groups go head to head at Los Angeles' Hollywood Palladium
Verzuz battle lovers are heading toward the weekend right as two iconic hip hop groups, both of which started out in the '90s, are scheduled to go head-to-head. Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will battle it out at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Those who've bought a ticket and those who've not but will still be tuning in virtually are equally excited. "I normally don't spaz about stuff like this, but if there is ever a Verzuz I will drop everything to witness, it's this one," read a tweet which very well sums up the hype among fans awaiting the commencement of the event.
The latest showdown comes a fortnight after Chaka Khan and Stephanie Mills stepped on stage for an episode of Verzuz titled 'A Night for the Queens'. This was a highly-anticipated pairing and the R&B icons celebrated music and sisterhood at The Theater at Ace Hotel in downtown LA. Khan was not in the best of shape, vocally, but with support from Mills, what audiences witnessed during the 90-minutes of the show was pure sisterly love and two queens trying their best to keep the energy among the audience high all the time. The two shared hugs and words of admiration frequently during the show. “We’re both Aries, both fire,” Mills said at one point during the show to which Khan quickly responded with, “We’re warriors.” The 34-song setlist covered the icons' biggest hits, favorite album cuts, and a couple of covers, according to Billboard.

Three 6 Mafia or Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, who will win the Verzuz battle?
While it's anybody's game till the end, Three 6 Mafia's DJ Paul threw playful shade at the Bones with an Instagram post. “Look, man. You know, when it come to Bone, man, I’m a fan! I can’t sit up here and say that I’m not a fan. I bought the E. 1999 album,” he said as frightful music played in the background. “But I also can’t sit up here and lie to myself and to y’all and say that I don’t wish the Verzuz was today,” he continued. “So I can kill them on the first of tha month!” However, he did make up for the banter with an endearing caption that he shared along with the video which reads, "2 of The Best In The Universe Will Battle Tomorrow & End This 26 yr Old Confusion We All Started As Nutty Kids."
