It’s a Wu-Tang family battle: Raekwon and Ghostface Killah have been announced as the next VERZUZ opponents. “Steel sharpen Steel,” Raekwon wrote. It happens on March 20 at 8 p.m. Eastern. It can be viewed the VERZUZ Instagram account or via the Triller app—the new parent company of VERZUZ.
After closing out its first season with a sometimes tense face-off between Gucci Mane and Jeezy, VERZUZ returned in December with E-40 and Too $hort, followed by a twice-postponed battle between Ashanti and Keyshia Cole. D’Angelo led a solo VERZUZ set without any opponents—just his friends Method Man, Redman, H.E.R., and Keyon Harrold—at the end of February.
Last fall, Raekwon announced that he had a new memoir, The Story of Raekwon, arriving in spring 2021, but a release date has not yet been announced. Ghostface Killah confirmed that he’s working on Supreme Clientele 2, the sequel to 1997’s Supreme Clientele, on Instagram in October.
