Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah and Raekwon locked for Verzuz rap battle

The showdown was announced last Sunday (28th)

Ghostface Killah and Raekwon have been locked for the next Verzuz rap battle.

Launched in March 2020 during the initial COVID-19 pandemic, the Verzuz series is a clash concept from producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, which has seen the likes of Alicia Keys, Beenie Man, DMX, Snoop Dogg and Ludacris face off in music battles.

On Saturday (28th), following a set from D'Angelo, the two hosts announced that the next battle would be between two of Wu-Tang Clan's original members: Ghostface Killah and Raekwon.

Speaking on the episode, Swizz said "What we talkin' about, New York City? Staten Island stand up! Wu vs. Wu. Raekwon vs. Ghostface Killah... dates to come." It follows a showdown between Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Gang Starr’s DJ Premier, who went head-to-head in a virtual Verzuz battle last year.

In October, Brooklyn-born rapper Raekwon revealed that he will be releasing his memoir in the form of a book in 2021.
