Who could face Jay-Z in a "Verzuz" battle?
The debate continues to rage. Harlem rapper and Dipset member Jim Jones threw his take into the mix; declaring that only a certain Toronto-born hitmaker can go toe-to-toe with Shawn Carter.
“The person I would say that would put up most of a fight would be Drake hands down," Jones told journalist Brandon "Scoop B" Robinson. "And I know that Drake hasn’t been here for the duration that Jay has been but, Drake has put out platinum hits every time he’s put a record out and we all know that every one single of Drake’s hits for the past 10 to some odd years that he’s been in this game which is a long stretch for doing music and he’s breaking a lot of records when it comes to entries.
“When it comes to 20 hits, I think that Drake would be the top candidate to jump into the ring with Jay. I know it’s a lot of different things that people say in regards to his qualifications and all that, but when we’re talking about hits and commanding everybody’s attention and making the fuckin’ stadium go crazy? Don’t play with that boy, ya dig? And I’m talking about right now.”
