After a year of negotiation, Verzuz TV says Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will face off against Three 6 Mafia in the next Verzuz battle.

The official Verzuz TV account dropped the news on November 12, exciting hip-hop fans everywhere. “IT’S THAT TIME,” the post announcing the battle reads. You can tune in to Verzuz TV to catch the rap battle live in Los Angeles on Thursday, December 2 at 4:30 pm PT / 7:30 pm ET. Fans of the social media battles have been asking to see these two classic ’90s groups face off against one another.

Fans of both groups have been asking for this face-off for decades. The battle between the groups has been a long time coming. In the past, some short-lived beef between the groups inspired the one-off EP “Live by Yo Rep.” Both groups wanted to do a rap battle independent of Verzuz in April 2020 – but it had to be canceled.

According to Verzuz TV, Swizz Beats contacted Krazie to get the event pushed forward.
