DJ Khaled appeared on Drink Champs last month and told co-hosts N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN that he didn't believe there was anybody who could beat him in a Verzuz battle. But DJ Drama, who stopped by Hot 97 for an interview with Ebro, Laura Stylez and Rosenberg on Friday (Sept. 9), again voiced his desire to battle Khaled.
“Listen, on the Khaled situation, I just want to leave it here," Drama explained. "I’ve said my piece about, you know, I’m with all the smoke.”
“I would love to do it. It’s great for Verzuz. … I have a catalog of records, I have a catalog of projects. I have two superstar artists, Lil Uzi Vert and Jack Harlow … And this is the thing, listen, I have said Khaled’s name, let’s see Khaled say Drama’s name. I wanna see on record, someone ask Khaled: ‘What do you think about DJ Drama in a Verzuz?’"
Drama made it clear that he's got nothing but respect for Khaled, but he's ready to go.
“And let me put it like this: I do nothing but tip my hat and salute to that man and his accomplishments, and the greatness that he’s done for the culture. It’s all love, it’s just competition. When we get on that court, I’m ready to bust anybody’s ass.”
