Redman, Method Man to face off on ‘Verzuz’ in April

The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire will also go head to head.

Longtime collaborators Redman and Method Man are set to face off in an upcoming episode of Verzuz.

The second season of the popular web series, which pits producers, songwriters and artists against each other in a rap battle style format, has already seen hotly contested battles between artists like Ashanti and Keyshia Cole, Jeezy and Gucci Mane, and more. But according to the show’s official Instagram account, there are a lot more high-profile battles on the way.

Redman and Method Man will go head-to-head next month on April 20—which is aptly billed as the “How High – 4/20 Special.” Meanwhile, iconic funk groups The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire are set to face off on Easter Sunday (April 4).


In addition, the show also teased the themes of three upcoming episodes: a Mother’s Day Special (May 9) that seems to be a solo show, a Rematch event on Memorial Day Weekend (May 29-31) and a yet-to-be scheduled Ladies’ Night match-up. Verzuz will reveal the featured artists for these battles at a later date.

Verzuz co-founders Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, both of whom were featured on the show’s very first episode, also have plans to do a rematch for the show’s one-year anniversary, according to Billboard. It’s currently unknown when that will take place.

The new Verzuz programming comes weeks after news that it was acquired by Triller Network, the parent company of the short-form video app and TikTok competitor Triller. While you wait for more details on the upcoming battles, check out a teaser for upcoming Verzuz battles below:
