Juicy J ain't backing down. 😂

As Swizz Beats and Timbaland's Verzuz platform continues to grow with legendary matchups like the most recent "Battle of the Dogs" between Snoop Dogg and DMX, artists and fans are tossing out suggestions for who they would like to see next.

Though it'll be tough to top Snoop Dogg showing off his smooth dance moves at the ripe age of 48, Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J is throwing his hat in the ring, as he has his sights set on someone you probably wouldn't expect: Nas.

You read that right. Let's break down this unlikely combo quickly...

What Juice and Nas have in common is that they're both icons. Three 6, comprised of Juice and DJ Paul, played a huge role in shaping southern gangster rap and crunk music; Nas is the golden child of New York and one of the best lyricists of all-time.

But their sounds are way different in energy and subject matter and don't overlap much era-wise. Juicy J dominated the late 2000s and early to mid-2010s while Nas was at his peak during the late 1990s and early 2000s. 

Fans had fun debating who would win and imagining the hilarious contrast of the battle, highlighted by outrageous Juicy J cuts like "Bandz A Make Her Dance" and "A Zip and a Double Cup."

This latest name-drop comes after Juicy J called on another hip-hop legend, Dr. Dre, to face-off. “I wanna do a Verzus battle wit Dr Dre no cappuccino,” he tweeted in late June.

Before Verzuz chatter was sparked online involving Juice and Nasty Nas, Chris Brown confidently dismissed talk of a showdown against Usher. 

"I could do a vs off features alone," he wrote on Instagram Stories. "So I’ll humbly decline…I’m busy doing nothing.” He continued, “What we not gone do is CAP.” Hmm.
