The Lox won their Verzuz show against Dipset just based on their energy.
Styles P says they did some research before the show, and that included taking a few tips from Tekashi 6ix9ine.

He told GQ, “I feel like the younger generation pays more attention to who they hear the most or what they think is the funniest, so I already knew, culture-wise, that [Dipset] had more young people riding with them going into it. They also talk a certain amount on the internet, and I knew Sheek and Kiss weren’t gonna say anything — and usually I wouldn’t say anything, I’m probably the last one to be joking around — but I said fuck it. I watched Nicky Jam and saw how the internet saved his career. I watched Supervillain and saw how Tekashi 6ix9ine manipulated things to his favor,” he admitted.
“Then I watched a couple of other things that didn’t have anything to do with rap, but kind of explained how algorithms and the internet can change people’s views.”
Their research did not fail them.
