American rapper Juicy J has been eyeing a Verzuz battle since its inception in March 2020 and after getting no traction on his demand of a Live Instagram battle with either of the hip-hop icons Nas or Dr Dre, the Southern hip-hop artist now wants to go against renowned producer Pharrell Williams for the Verzuz battle which has now entered in its second season.
In an interview with radio station 97.9 The Box in Houston, the 45-year-old expressed his wish to battle against Pharrell. As Hot New Hip Hop website reports, he said, “I could easily kill somebody in a Verzuz battle. I could pull up that old Three 6 [Mafia] and pull up my new catalog and smash you with my middle catalog. I mean there’s three decades of music. I think you can you can only play twenty records, I got so many hits. You know what, I’ma tell you something. A match-up- me and Pharrell. He a artist, I'm a artist, he a producer, and I’m a producer.”

Verzuz’s Season 2 battle recently premiered with Gucci Mane locking horns against his long-time rival Jeezy. According to series co-founders, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, the virtual event attracted 9.1 million viewers, which placed them ahead of some of music’s biggest awards shows, like the MTV Video Music Awards, Billboard Awards and Latin Grammys.
Speaking of Juicy J, he is also dropping his brand new album ‘The Hustle Continues’ on November 27, 2020. Talking about the same in an interview with TheBoombox.com, Juicy J spoke about the thought process he had earlier and how it has gradually changed. He stated, “At the time I was just happy to be back in the game. It was like I am back after being away for a while. Man, the turn up was real. I was partying and drinking, taking shots of gin. I was feeling trippy at the time. But this album is going to be more about my struggle. I go through a lot. I am one of those artists who knows where their money is, I pay my bills, I take care of my mama. I handle my business, I am a businessman. I go to meetings and take care of things, so it’s a lot more than just partying and turning up.”
