112 vs. Jagged Edge – Diversity2 min read
The Vergez series – in which two R&B / hip-hop artists engage in a virtual DJ battle on Instagram Live while thousands of fans watch and weigh in on social media – is one of the few silver lining of the epidemic lockdown. And the series, which began with founders Suez Beatz and Timbaland, proved to be extremely popular – last Saturday’s fight between Ludacris and Nellie garnered around 450,000 viewers – the founder planned to take a holiday at Memorial Day weekend … but his colleagues and listeners Others had ideas.
“I was going on vacation on Saturday,” Suez said Diversity. “But I’m getting a lot of pushback from artists and audiences to keep it going, especially since it’s a long holiday and everyone is stuck indoors. So I said, ‘I’m going to work this weekend to tell the team better.'”
And they’ve literally doubled, with two fights this weekend: Saturday will see their first non-R&D / hip-hop match – with Jamaican reggae artists Benny Mann and Bounty Killer – and Monday’s first group Verzos with R&B groups Jagged Edge. Bad Boy took Favorite 112.
“We wanted to change that and add some Caribbean style to the Benny Man and Bouncy Killer, and with the Jagged Edge and the 112, everyone had to treat another celebration with the demand for popularity – all for the Memorial Day weekend,” says Suez. Diversity.
The next battle finds the series trailing back to the ’90s-’00s (if one can say it’s about a few weeks old series) but it did find similarities between the 90’s title Babyface and Teddy Riley and the soul legend Erica Badur and Jill Scott as well as the top .
