Last night was epic for Hip Hop as the whole music industry came together to watch two legends go head-to-head. DMX battled Snoop Dogg in classic Verzuz battle for the Doghouse! The two heavyweight were ready to showcase their 20 best tracks for the whole to see live on Instagram.
The two were in the same studio social distancing of course, all set up with personal DJ’s to administer the tracks. After DMX said an in-depth prayer to bless the battle it was on and popping as Snoop set off Round 1 with ‘Whop Am I (What’s My Name)’. But this was no ordinary battle as each artist became the other’s hype man. The energy in the room was crazy as you could tell regardless who won it was all love. Snoop played his classic tracks like ‘Gin & Juice,’ ‘Lay Low’ and ‘Murder Was The Case.’ DMX gave us a few anthems including ‘Ruff Riders Anthem,’ ‘Where The Hood At’ and ‘Slippin.’ One of the best parts of the Verzuz battle was toward the end when both artists gave us a freestyle.
