Kodak Black challenges Jay-Z to Verzuz battle; offers 15% of his catalog if he loses


After Jay-Z boasted two weeks ago, “No one can stand on that stage with me” in a Verzuz battle, the hip hop world has been debating who would be a fitting rival for Hova. Now Kodak Black has stepped up with a challenge, and a bet.

“I’ll do a [Verzuz] wit Jay Z,” the “Zeze” rapper tweeted with a smiling devil emoji. “‘IF’ he win he get 15% of my catalog I win he make me Vice President of roc nation.”

Lil Wayne, Eminem, Busta Rhymes and Kanye West are among the names that have been mentioned to battle the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.

But even as Black hopes to get a shot at Jay-Z, he’s once again facing more legal problems. As previously reported, on New Year’s Day, he was arrested for allegedly trespassing in his South Florida hometown of Pompano Beach.

The Florida MC was released from prison in January 2021 after being pardoned by Donald Trump. He was arrested in April 2019 for weapons and drug possession and was serving a 46-month sentence in federal prison after pleading guilty to charges he falsified information while attempting to purchase guns in Miami. Black recently completed a court ordered 90-day drug rehabilitation program and was granted special permission by a judge to perform at the Rolling Loud New York Festival in October 2021.

Then in April, Black avoided going back to prison after he agreed to a plea deal for a sexual assault charge in South Carolina in 2016. He received 18 months probation and is required to attend counseling sessions.
