After much back and forth, it appears Diddy and Jermaine Dupri are finally facing off in a Verzuz.

In a clip shared on social media, Diddy is captured telling Busta Rhymes and Fabolous about the forthcoming event. “September 8 at the Garden. Me vs. Jermaine,” says Diddy. “We’re gon’ have you out the rafters flying out the sky.”

Diddy and Jermaine have exchanged words on social media, each boasting about their respective catalogs. Last August, amid the lawsuit between Verzuz co-founders Timbaland and Swizz Beatz and Triller, they agreed to come together and put on a show in Atlanta, in which they’d showcase their records on Diddy’s Bad Boy Records and Jermaine’s So So Def Recordings.

“Since we ain’t f****** with Verzuz no more since ’cause they f****** around with our boys, we don’t need to be going against each other. Let’s come together and do that Bad Boy, So So Def in Atlanta. It ain’t no Verzuz, it’s just hit for hit,” Diddy said, to which Jermaine replied, “Let’s do it.”

His update seemingly took place backstage at Major Food Group’s American Express Presents Carbone Beach event during F1 race weekend in Miami, where he took the stage and performed with Fab and Busta.
