Hot! A Tribe Called Quest x OutKast Poised For Verzuz Battle

It’s happening.

The Covid pandemic has certainly altered the trajectory for a multitude of industries, but despite its warpath, it has forced companies to adopt creative solutions to these unprecedented problems. One industry who’s had to pivot — and pivot quickly — is the media, who’s been handcuffed by limited production capabilities. But with remote teams and nimble thinking, publishers across the board have gracefully adapted; some have even used these negative circumstances to launch new brands.

Enter Verzuz — the web series created by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. With live shows brought to a screeching halt, these two legends linked up to deliver a new experience for fans craving some semblance of concerts. Pinning iconic acts’ catalogues against each other, Verzuz is the destination for artists to show and prove. 

Already, we’ve seen battles between Snoop Dogg and DMX, RZA and DJ Premier, Nelly and Ludacris, and so many more. Now, with season 2 around the corner, another exciting showdown is on the horizon: A Tribe Called Quest and OutKast are poised to face-off.

The official date of this battle hasn’t been revealed yet, but when it does occur, fans can expect a match for the ages.

Get ready for ATCQ x OutKast’s Verzuz battle, coming to a phone near you soon; check out the announcement below:
