UGK Verzuz 8Ball + MJG Is Happening
Bun B as confirmed a VERZUZ match-up that could rival Jeezy vs. Gucci Mane as an epic moment for Southern hip-hop. Bun B said in January 2021 we’ll soon be getting UGK in a much-needed battle with legendary Memphis duo 8Ball & MJG.
Details aren’t locked in on when the Verzuz will happen between UGK and 8Ball & MJG, but Bun B guessed it would be sometime this year before the summer. There had been a lot of talk about UGK and OutKast in a Verzuz, but this matchup is a big one for the region.
“I don’t know. It’s kind of pushed back, everything’s kinda pushed back because of the Ashanti and Keyshia Cole and they’re still trying to find the right times to do a lot this stuff but I would imagine before the summer. We’ve been talking about it since last year, since VERZUZ started last year. Cause me and Ball just talked about doing it period, and I was like, ‘Let me run it by Swizz and Tim and see if it was something they’d be open to.’ They said yes. There’s a certain list of criteria they look for when considering you for VERZUZ. Luckily, UGK and 8Ball & MJG checked all those boxes for that. Plus we all get along. UGK Ball & G VERZUZ is actually gon’ be fun cause we’ve known each other for years, we get along real well. It’s gon’ be interesting to get in there and play the music for the people.” (“Donnie Houston Podcast”)
