T.I now wants a Verzuz rap battle with hip-hop heavyweight Jay-Z. The About The Money hitmaker now wants to go hit for hit with the Dirt Off Your Shoulder hitmaker.

Jay-Z has a very impressive catalogue with hits such as Excuse Me Miss, Hard Knock Life, 99 Problems and Hey Papi, among other hits. He is also one of the richest rappers alive.
According to FreshHipHopMag, T.I has also admitted that challenging Jay-Z is a far-fetched idea.
"Who can see [Jay Z] sitting down to do a battle? If I’m a billionaire, I’m not finna do that, either, but me and 50 ain't that far off."
The publication reports that T.I claimed that him and 50 Cent would be a fair battle.
"As far as confidence, as far as our bankrolls go, we kinda neck-and-neck, whatever he want to [admit] it or not. And another thing, it’s personality. I need somebody who has a personality that won’t be intimidated by my bravado."
Briefly.co.za reported that T.I recorded a video and posted it online for 50 Cent to see on his birthday. He said 50 could bring his whole G-Unit crew and Eminem and Dr Dre.
