Erykah Badu and Jill Scott perform in the first women's Verzuz battle on Instagram Live "You inspired me," Teddy Riley told Babyface during their livestream. A battle with Tay Keith would put Wheezy’s powerful, majestic style (see the fanfare-sounding melodies on Thug’s “Hot,” for example) against Keith’s energetic, of-the-moment drum programming in a battle to see who’s the hottest right now, and who’s likely to leave the biggest mark on the game. Pi’erre Bourne and Ronny J are two of the most successful beatmakers to emerge from the ranks of the SoundCloud rap world. Women won. Regional bias and generational schisms creep up.

The inaugural Verzuz battle is the longest and hardest to call. Who won?

Gucci Plays Diss Track 'Truth' 6.8K; 11/19/2020 6:17 PM PT It's almost time to watch Verzuz: Gladys Knight vs Patti LaBelle! Ne-Yo edged out the victory in the end, although this one is better appreciated as a two-and-a-half-hour 2000s nostalgia playlist than a formal beat battle. In the ’90s, he produced the early Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Big Tymers, B.G., and Hot Boys albums in full, making beats essentially from scratch. Dive in below. It’s a simple eight-team tournament headlined by DaBaby, Lil Baby, and Sada Baby, with the veteran baby, Birdman, trying to make one last run towards glory. Probably too much, but I do. —Jessica McKinney, Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih are the unsung heroes of hooks. Both hail from Atlanta and rose to prominence in the late-’90s run on male singing groups in the wake of Jodeci going on a long hiatus in 1996. These two could go toe-to-toe with some of the greatest hits of the decade. What’s the rundown? He pulled a few too many of his biggest hits too early, and that cost him in the back half of the battle, when Boi-1da locked in, playing ten years’ worth of Drake hits. It was a lock for Snoop the minute they announced his sparring partner. It was his hook on “Despacito” that helped Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee make history as the first Spanish song to peak at No. In the label’s heyday, everyone from Mase to Lil Kim and 112 was pumping out hits. And Diddy’s footprint in hip-hop culture is just as impressive. Remember that, in their prime, Pharrell and Chad Hugo were responsible for over 40% of the songs on the radio. This one was too close to get hung up on scoring. (Some other time, let’s talk about the towering synths on “Drank” and “Chopped N Skrewed” being every bit as instrumental to the massive sound of ’05-’08 hip-hop as DJ Toomp jams like T.I.’s “What You Know” and Jeezy’s “I Luv It” or Drumma Boy on Tip’s “What Up, What’s Haapnin’” and Jeezy and Kanye’s “Put On.”) Jon brought rowdy Atlanta crunk music to the masses and produced for everyone from Usher and Ciara to Pitbull and, yes, T-Pain. It’s hard as nails! While we wait to find out what happens next, particularly after partnering with Apple Music in late July, let’s go over what we’ve seen so far, ranked from best to worst to absolutely doomed. Ty Dolla, in particular, has worked with Khalid, Skrillex, YG, and Future within the span of a couple years. Timbaland is the more compelling musician; there’s wilder stuff going on in a measure of a Timbo beat than a Swizz one seven times out of ten. Verzuz reimagines the DJ battles of hip-hop’s early days for the “one gotta go” set. Both singers have made movies. So even though he has fewer years behind the boards than his competitor, it would be one hell of a fight. Who won? March Madness came and went without a whisper but April brings the Battle of the Babies, rap’s most talked about competition finally coming to life. The rematch went to Babyface, and it wasn’t close, although Teddy landed a few good rebuttals, reminding us that Keith Sweat’s new jack swing classic “I Want Her” is (almost) just as good as Bobby Brown’s “Every Little Step.”. Garrett is best known to people who don’t read liner notes as the guest on Nicki Minaj’s “Massive Attack” but renowned to those in the know as the co-writer and/or co-producer of singles like Usher’s “Yeah!,” Ciara’s “Goodies,” and Yonce bangers like “Ring the Alarm.” That said, he showed up late mugging lasciviously at the camera and letting records rock too long. I’m giving the edge to Timbo for baiting Swizz into playing R&B and standing strong when his opponent’s (killer) stash of 2006 Beyoncé classics ran out, revealing his opponent’s shortcomings while showcasing his own strengths. The bracket goes chalk in round one, but the one/four matchup goes to Birdman who receives a little bit of Dr. Carter rejuvenation and teaches Lil Baby not to trifle with the OGs. Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight will go head-to-head in a Verzuz battle. There’s no way you could leave this Instagram session unsatisfied. We were blessed with Neyo versus Johnta Austin, Scott Storch versus Mannie Fresh, and T-Pain versus Lil Jon. Who won? Although a few hiccups with Patti’s sound stood as a reminder of how quickly and off the cuff this series came together in just six months, the night’s overall excellence suggests it’ll be here as long as there’s a captive audience. —Shawn Setaro, This would be the battle no hardcore rap fan would want to miss. But it was never going to go well for Fab, since Jadakiss was five years deep in the game by the time the BK rhymer’s 2001 debut Ghetto Fabolous dropped and continues to command a respect as a guest feature that his friend can’t match. Already a subscriber? dropped out of a planned Verzuz battle with Jeezy at the last minute, and Gucci stepped in as a replacement, everyone who knew the history couldn’t help but wonder if the series hadn’t just scheduled its first fistfight.

Texas songwriter, performer, producer, and choir director Kirk Franklin followed Hammond’s lead in the ’90s with his choirs God’s Property and the Family, adding funk and hip-hop into the mix and crossing over with unlikely R&B radio hits like 1997’s Funkadelic-sampling “Stomp.” Franklin and Hammond’s Verzuz meet wasn’t a battle so much as a necessary moment of calm led by intergenerational talents. In the final round, the three seed Sada Baby uses his cultural cache to outlast a fading Birdman. CB’s catalog as a featured guest might be a little more versatile.

Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle are soul-music institutions celebrated as much for their grace as for possessing two of the greatest singing voices in recorded-music history — Gladys for her rich contralto and Patti as a soprano with a shocking range for whom no note seems too high.

Dream — who has helped craft scores of hits, including Beyoncés “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” and Mariah Carey’s “Touch My Body,” and made memorable songs of his own in “Falsetto” and “Rockin’ That Shit” — was cordial and timely in his Sunday night scrap.

Gladys scored Motown classics with her family band, the Pips, including “If I Were Your Woman” and “Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye),” and persevered long enough to have hits in the ’80s like “Love Overboard,” “That’s What Friends Are For,” and the Bond theme “License to Kill.” Patti’s Blue Belles evolved from a ’60s girl group into the successful funk group Labelle, but her biggest hits would happen in her solo career with staples like “New Attitude” and the Michael McDonald duet “On My Own.” For Verzuz, the longtime friends and collaborators celebrated each other, sang as beautifully as they did at their peak, and offered words of encouragement for the generations coming up behind them. Johntá’s catalog — see: Bow Wow and Ciara’s “Like Mine,” Chris Brown’s “Run It!,” Trey Songz’s “Can’t Help But Wait,” and Mariah’s “We Belong Together” and “Shake It Off” — fills out the picture of a bygone era of wholesome 106 & Park countdowns and carefree rhythmic contemporary radio fare.
