Back in March, the official Verzuz social media team formed like Voltron and teased a whole upcoming line-up, equipped with a flyer. We knew that there will be a special “Rematch” Verzuz to celebrate Memorial Day at the time, but we didn’t know who the acts would be. Now we know!
This past March—the 24th to be exact—was also the one-year anniversary of the time Swizz and Timbaland hopped on IG Live and began the virtual version of Verzuz we know and enjoy today.
So while it would’ve been a fun clusterfuck to see a rematch of Teddy Riley Verzuz Babyface, it looks like Verzuz is paying homage to its origins.
In other (way less fun and very sobering) news, Soulja Boy announced on Saturday that he and Bow Wow would be performing in an upcoming Verzuz.
Swizz Beatz’s net worth
Swizz Beatz’s first song he ever produced was for DMX, so having him come to the Verzuz stage was a full-circle moment. In the decades since then, Swizz Beatz has been one of the most prolific producers in hip-hop. He’s been behind songs by Jay-Z, Eve, and even his wife, Alicia Keys. He’s also a rapper himself and has released solo singles and albums in the past.
In addition to music, Swizz Beatz has branched off into other business ventures. He’s had sneaker collaborations and is an avid art collector and painter. In 2019, it was announced that he and Keys wanted to transform a property in upstate New York into a performing arts center and recording studio.
Swizz Beatz has quietly amassed an impressive personal fortune over the years, thanks to his work with some of the music industry’s biggest players. According to WealthyGorilla, his net worth is estimated to be $150 million in 2021.
Timbaland’s net worth
Just like Swizz Beatz, Timbaland has been a longtime hip-hop producer who eventually crossed over into rapper territory too. He first rose to prominence as the mastermind behind Missy Elliott’s biggest hits and soon became hip-hop’s hottest producer.
In more recent years, Timbaland has been able to take his talents to the TV screen. When FOX launched the hit series Empire starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, Timbaland was brought on to write and produce the original music on the show.
Timbaland has done it all over the past two decades, and his net worth is reflective of his hard work: WealthyGorilla estimates him to be worth $85 million in 2021.
