On Monday, July 6, Atlanta rapper T.I. took to Instagram and challenged 50 Cent to a Verzuz battle. “For your birthday, I offer you a challenge, sir,” Tip said. “Pull your ass up with 20 of your records, sit across from me, and get this work, man.”
In his Instagram post, T.I. referenced 50 Cent losing a previous “battle” to Kanye West which was in regards to record sales in 2007. There have been many names thrown around to challenge T.I., such as Gucci Mane and Jeezy. T.I. continued to wish 50 Cent a Happy Birthday but let him know he has 24 hours to respond to the challenge.

This isn’t the first time T.I. stated he wanted to challenge 50. In an interview on Complex’s Open Late With Peter Rosenberg, Lil Wayne was brought up as an original contender. T.I. agreed that would be an entertaining battle. “He gonna be a tough one. That shit gonna be tough… I’m gon’ pull up tho. I’m pulling up tho.” Later, he, however, stated that his number one challenge request would be 50 Cent.
Are the Verzuz fans ready to see a challenge between T.I. and 50 Cent?
