Last night two of the most legendary female rappers had a Verszus battle – Trina and Eve. Unfortunately, MTO News can confirm that violence popped off at the event – and Love & Hip Hop star Tommie Lee was smack dab in the middle of it all.
The actual Verzuz battle was fun. Trina and Eve went head to head all evening, playing hits from their respective catalogs for over 20 rounds. But the two ladies were not in the studio together, Trina filmed from her home turf in Miami, while Eve appeared live from London.
That was lucky for Eve. Because during one of the breaks in the show – Love & Hip Hop star Tommie got into a fight with a girl. It was captured on camera. Look:
Luckily, the ratchet fighting didn’t slow down the show, which was pretty entertaining. Trina started things off with the title track from her 2014 album Who’s Bad, and Eve followed up with her 2007 Swizz Beatz-produced single “Tambourine.” Later in the night, when Trina performed her remix of Trick Daddy’s “Nann,” she brought out the rapper.
Trina also revealed that the VERZUZ location held a special significance for her. “We are actually in the same building I recorded this video in,” she said.
Eve and Trina paid tribute to Tupac and Missy Elliott during the night’s battle. Both women rapped along to tracks by Elliott: Trina did her Elliott/Ludacris collab “One Minute Man,” while Eve played her and Elliott’s “4 My People” and the “Hot Boyz” remix featuring Lil’ Mo, Nas, and Q-Tip.
Elliott later tweeted in response: “I want to say this I am HUMBLY GRATEFUL because I’ve been on a lot of artist verzuz & I want to thank those AMAZING artist who believed in me as a Writer/Producer or just a artist I love yall 4 the love yall shown me.”
