Rapper D.M.X. has said that he would like to go hit-for-hit with Jay-Z in an Instagram battle via Swizz Beats and Timbaland's Verzuz.
D.M.X. featured on a recent episode of the Drink Champs podcast, where he mulled the possibility over with N.O.R.E., who asked who he thinks he should go up against.
"Jay," X replied.
N.O.R.E. was shocked to say the least, "Are we saying JAY-Z?" he asked quizzically.
"Yeah, who you think?" D.M.X. responded.
Now that's he's laid down the gauntlet, no doubt Swizz and Timbaland will be trying to see if they could get the battle inked. But does Jay think that D.M.X. is a worthy adversary? We'll have to wait and see.
The pair does have a history of going up against each other, and each time, the moment was one to remember.
But Diddy and Dr. Dre was another high profile battle we were all looking forward to after it was announced that the heavyweights were possibly stepping into the ring, but the buzz around that has died down and it may or may not be happening at this point.
