DMX will face Snoop Dogg in Verzuz battle, how to watch in SA

#Verzuz returns next week with the ultimate face-off. Which breed has the better pedigree, #DMX or #SnoopDogg?

The pedigree between the two breeds of MC’s facing off in Wednesday night’s Verzuz battle is incredulous, to say the least. If you told us that in our lifetime, we would see DMX go up against Snoop Dogg in a catalogue head-to-head, we’d scoff you off.

But, much to our appeasement, it is 100% true and it is happening in a week.

DMX faces Snoop Dogg in epic Verzuz battle

The Verzuz arena has seen some great encounters and created phenomenal moments, both good and bad. The Ted Riley meme is right up there as one of the funniest moments on the internet.

And who can forget about how Bounty Killer and Beenie Man united the world under one roof and basically turned the police away from shutting down the riotous event?

There is no telling what we can expect from two ferocious dogs, huddled under the same roof in a contest that will determine who has the better music catalogue.

What time is DMX vs Snoop Dogg?

One thing is for sure, though, it is going to be very interesting. Cringe? Maybe, but one can’t simply ignore the iconic status of DMX and Snoop Dogg.

The Verzuz battle will go down on Wednesday 22 July, at 22:00 EST. In South Africa, the 20-round hit-for-hit battle will take place on Thursday morning, at 04:00.

How to watch Verzuz in South Africa

Before, the battles took place at the artists’ respective Instagram Live pages. However, there were many drawbacks experienced in this format. Two-way interactions on Instagram Live ruined the experience for hundreds of thousands of fans who tuned in.

If it was not poor internet connection problems, it was the sound quality. Thus, the Verzuz battle will be hosted from a single venue with both artists seated across from each other while the entire occasion is broadcast on Verzuz’ Instagram Live page.

For HD quality, the Verzuz battle will also be broadcast on Apple Music.
