Verzuz was launched in March by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. The ongoing clash series sees competitors taking it in turns to play a song from a list of 20 tracks from across their discography as fans, friends and fellow artists watch on. A winner is later decided by Verzuz founders Timbaland and Swizz Beatz.
After starting out as a 20-song showdown between producers, the series has now seen rappers and performers facing off against each other.
The confirmation of the clash came after Eminem said he would be interested in taking on DMX.
Posting a picture of him and DMX playing a giant game of Jenga, rapper N.O.R.E. wrote on Instagram: “This moment is so Legend !!! 3 minutes before this @therealswizzz CALLS X and says Eminem is down for that smoke.”
