A fight broke out during the Verzuz virtual concert that nobody was really expecting. Since the pandemic, the virtual concerts have been an outlet for many to enjoy their favorite artists, somewhat live. Since most are stuck in the house because of the pandemic. This was the first Verzuz that people could actually attend in person. However, tensions and stress are still high, and celebs are not exempt from the stress.
OMG the two 90’s hip hop groups were supposed to come together for some fun and entertainment. But instead, ended in a whole brawl. The heated music battle took place on Thursday (Dec. 2) at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, California, in front of a sold-out audience.
Unfortunately, the Verzuz started off on a more somber note than usual, with the host asking for those in attendance and watching at home to take a moment and honor three important figures who recently passed.
The first was Young Dolph, a Memphis contemporary and icon who had collaborated with DJ Paul and Juicy J, who was killed on November 17. Juicy shared a heartfelt message on Twitter after the news of Dolph’s passing was confirmed. The second was designer Virgil Abloh, who died on November 28 after a multi-year battle with cancer he had kept private. The third, Jacqueline Avant, a philanthropist and the wife of legendary music executive Clarence Avant, who was killed during a home robbery on December 1.
After performing “Buddah Lovaz,” Bizzy Bone called Three 6 Mafia out for disrespecting him while singing his verse on the track.
The Verzuz Battle Quickly Escalated
“Hey yo hey yo before we even get started, you ugly muthaf–kas ain’t finna to be mocking me while I’m on muthaf–kin’ stage,” Bizzy said. “OK? Straight the f–k up.”
Juicy J responded, telling Bizzy, “suck my d–k,” and it didn’t take long before the Bone Thugs member threw a water bottle that nearly caused the two crews to come to blows. Security halted Verzuz as they worked on maintaining order, and things got back in motion after a few short minutes.
Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs returned with “Azz & Ti–ies” and “Days Of Our Livez,” respectively, before Layzie Bone took a second to announce that both groups were “dope.” The official restart happened when Bizzy Bone came back on stage to give Juicy J a pound.
“I wanna apologize to everybody the f–k out there — on both sides,” Bizzy said. “I’m not trying to f–k this shit up. Pardon me. Let’s keep the muthaf–kin’ party going.”
Well at Least Things Ended on A More Positive Note
Geesh, too bad things had to get threatening before leveling out. And gladly no one was hurt. Both groups are iconic and should be celebrated, not all up in arms with one another.
