The legacy of Verzuz continues to evolve. In addition to a battle between Cypress Hill and Onyx, the evening also includes the “Lineage of Greatness. It is a boxing event that will also occur—fighters slated to appear Sergey Kovalev, Tervel and Kubrat Pulev, Vargas Dynasty, and Evan Holyfield.

In January, Onyx member Fredro Starr told The Source that he could potentially see the “Slam” collective go up against the “How I Could Just Kill a Man” group.


“I’m willing to take on Cypress Hill to do an Onyx/Cypress Hill VERZUZ; I’m willing to do an Onyx/Dogg Pound VERZUZ.  I just think that the VERZUZ stage is great for artists who’ve been in the game for a minute and a lot of people say that n***** ain’t got 20 records which is crazy.”  He continued by saying, “I think that Onyx has one of the best stage shows in hip-hop. You give us an hour with anybody on that stage, and they’re going to feel the wrath!”


Verzuz is nothing short of a phenomenon, and a full-length documentary about it is in the works for Amazon Prime. The title is Young, Gifted, and Black will be co-produced by Verzuz creators Swiss Beatz and Timbaland.
