Roommates, if there is one thing that has consistently gotten us through the current quarantine, it’s been the hugely popular Verzuz battles brought to us by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland. However, the two now say that there have been several offers to sell off their brand—and they have declined out of respect for the culture.@RevoltTV reports, during a recent Instagram live conversation following the recent Verzuz battle between Beenie Man and Bounty Killa, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland briefly discussed how the undeniable popularity of the Verzuz battles has caught the attention of other companies—who have offered them “millions” to sell off the brand they created.Explaining why they’ve turned down recent deals to put Verzuz in other hands, Swizz said, “Tonight represented the authentic zone of why we didn’t sell 50% of the company for millions of dollars. The authentic zone of why we turned down millions and millions of dollars to the vultures just wanting put a name next to the name, but no. Respect is overdue. We haven’t made one cent off of Verzuz yet. That don’t mean that we not business. But, what we have is — Verzuz is a museum. It’s an educational, celebrational platform.”Meanwhile, Timbaland recently revealed the multiple offers they’ve received in the last few months:“I mean, you know a lot of people contacted me and Swizz you know on a lot of things, but right now we just wanna keep it for the culture because it’s so organic. We don’t wanna bring that part of the element in right away. We just wanna keep it where people are entertained because we living in a world where 16 million people lost jobs. We don’t wanna get into the politics of it. We wanna keep it natural and fun.”You can check out the next Verzuz battle between R&B groups 112 and Jagged Edge on May 25th at 8PM.Want tea directly in your text inbox?
