The Verzuz TV Instagram Live Battle between two hip-hop luminaries, Snoop Dogg and DMX, kicked off at 8 pm ET on July 22. With hip-hop heavyweights such as Nelly, Ludacris, Mannie Fresh, Scott Storch, RZA, DJ Premier, Jadakiss and Fabolous, the Swizz Beatz and Timbaland-founded Verzuz Battle series has always managed to bring the roof down with fiery performances by its contenders.

As a result, both the ladies were trending on the platform.

Another said, "Straight up singing battle? #Keisha wins, hands down. But a song to song, hit to hit, #verzuzbattle?? #Ashanti takes that one, not even close."
One Ashanti fan wrote, "If you're able to play songs you wrote or produced. I don't know man. Love Keisha. But my coins on Ashanti. I want to see it though" and another wrote, "Ashanti gonna spank dat a**."
