The rap battle against Jay-Z continues.

Last week, Rick Ross confidently proclaimed that a battle against the “Empire State Of Mind” rapper was “a possibility.” The Miami rapper shared his thoughts during his appearance on “The Real” while promoting his new album Richer Than I Ever Been, just days before Future sparked a Twitter debate claiming to be “bigger” than Jay-Z.

While discussing possible battle opponents, Ross was asked which rapper he’d like to go up against to which he answered, “JAY-Z… Yeah! Why not?”

“To me, that’s what makes ‘Verzuz’ special because it brings out the best in both parties,” he continued.

“That’s a possibility, but I gotta give my flowers to the big homie. I got to. My homie gave me my first opportunity signing me to Def Jam Records, and he’s one-of-one,” Ross said about his friend and recurring collaborator Jay-Z.


Now, the legendary Brooklyn-born rapper has responded to Ross’s comments saying that there’s “not a chance in hell” anyone could take him in a “Verzuz” battle.
