West Coast rapper Tyler, the Creator is crushing hard right now. While watching the Dipset and The LOX VERZUZ battle that went down on Tuesday, he slid in the Instagram Live comments to reveal which rapper he was rooting hard for.
Tyler, the Creator Reveals Jadakiss Crush
Tyler commented with all praise for Jadakiss’ voice control and confidence on the main platform. He also noted Jada aged well, later going on Twitter to reaffirm his dope performance.
“pause i think i gotta crush on jadakiss that n*gga confidence and voice control is crazy and he aged well wheesh”
“JADAKISS SKIN IS SO NICE.”
“jadakiss mvp wow”
Jadakiss was one of the inspirations behind Tyler’s breakthrough single “Yonkers” that released in 2011. Fellow Cali rapper Vince Staples spoke on it with the former Odd Future leader in a 2016 interview.
“I remember when you made that fuc*ing beat, and it was Jadakiss. You put on a fuc*ing beanie and started rapping like Jadakiss for like two hours.”
Jim Jones Strikes First
Tyler was tuned into the legendary VERZUZ battle last night along with millions of fans, which featured New York rap heavyweights Jim Jones and Styles P. The pair had way too much fun online ahead of their groups’ battle that finally went down. The hip-hop veterans stepped up to get some major promotion in as anticipation kept mounting.
It seemed to all start when Jimmy hit up his Instagram page in July 2021 joking about smoking on a LOX pack for one-night only August 3rd. He didn’t hold back and playfully trolled the life out of the entire L-O-X.
“@sauceyextracts droppin a new strain on August 3rd #LoxPack only sold at Madison square garden for 1 night only u get get this za za Ps I’m done for today lol got sh*t to do tell @stylesp @jadakiss @sheeklouch we got discount on them plates lol 😂”
Styles P appeared to strike back for two straight days, with both a video clip of himself and some playful tough talk in the IG post’s caption.
“On site when I catch that nigga!’👻💪🏾🐺 They set my homie up N laced his sh*t!!!👻😭😭😭”
Jones snuck into the comments section and let loose some hilarious jokes aimed at Styles.
“I thought it was love we never had a problem I love u styles paniro nino loved gmoney too Nigha u know th rest aug 3rd lol 😂”
Styles also dropped a hilarious meme poking fun at Jones and Dipset’s eagle logo along with Jimmy’s Byrd Gang crew.
“The face you make when you plant based but know you gotta eat a few byrds on august 3rd !!!!😭😭😭😭😭 !!!! …. IM SUPER HEAVY ON THE DRAGO VIBES (music wise )!!! IF THEY DIE .. THEY DIE … and oh yeah get this fire ass shirt !!!!! LOX TIL THE DEATH ..”
Jim Jones Wants To Dunk On The LOX
Jones also hit up his Instagram page later in the month to keep the trolling going. Jimmy imagined himself dunking on the LOX’s Jadakiss come August 3rd.
“This how I’m a be lookin on @jadakiss come August 3rd lol 😂 F*ck u mean lil bitty boy”
The Dipset VERZUZ The LOX Announcement
