Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter ignited a storm of ideas late last year when he talked about his potential to attend a Verzuz event. The 52-year-old Roc Nation founder believes he is invincible in this forum. And everyone‘s looking to throw Verzuz right now.
“No one can stand on that stage with me. I‘m not going to lie to you. With all due respect. Everyone‘s amazing and they‘ve done what they‘ve done. No one is standing on that stage with me,” Jay-Z said during a Twitter Spaces session.
Now, a 24-year-old rapper has begun a direct challenge to Jay-Z for a hit-and-go battle. Florida-raised rhyming Kodak Black posted on Twitter to lay out his conditions to defy the Brooklyn native.
“I‘ll do a [Verzuz with] Jay-Z. 😈 ‘IF‘ he [wins,] he [gets] 15 % of my catalog! I win, he [makes] me Vice President of Roc Nation 🤷 ♂️,” posted Kodak Black on Monday night.

Kodak Black began releasing music albums around 2013. His discography includes Platinum certified Picture Pictures, Project Baby 2 and Dying to Live projects. Singles such as “Tunnel Vision” and “Zeze” also won RIAA plaques. Jay-Z currently has fourteen No. 1 albums in the Billboard 200 chart history, the most for a solo move.
The rock’n roll Hall of Famer‘s four singles reached #1 on the Hot 100 chart and currently have 103 entries in the Hot 100 in Jay-Z‘s catalog.
Since its launch in 2020, Verzuz presented matches such as Swizz Beatz vs Timbaland, RZA vs DJ Premier, Nelly vs Ludacris, Fabolous vs Jadakiss, DMX vs Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross vs 2 Chainz, Jeezy vs Gucci Mane, Raekwon vs Ghostface, The Lox vs Dipset vs And Thug Bones-N-Harmony vs Three 6 Mafia.
