The COVID-19 pandemic took over the world last year and brought it to a standstill. However, after a year since then, people have gotten used to living in the current conditions and there are fewer lockdown restrictions in place. Some ideas were made during the past year that proved to be a lucrative business venture, including Verzuz.
While speaking to The Morning Hustle, rapper 50 Cent talked about potentially participating in Verzuz. 50 Cent revealed that the show doesn’t make any sense to him anymore as it was primarily made for the times people couldn’t get out of their houses.
“I thought Verzuz was something we did when we was stuck in the house. Look, as soon as we got out of the house and we come back outside, I was like, Verzuz didn’t make sense to me,”
One of the hosts suggested that Verzuz could also take place on the road in order to raise money. However, this did little to change 50 Cent’s mind.
“The reason why—the Verzuz part, to me, because of how it came, I looked at it like…Verzuz showed up and was the hottest thing. I was paying attention to it and watching it like everybody else. This is when D-Nice is like, the only DJ on the planet, right?” he added with a laugh. “This is like, COVID, this is crazy, what are we doing, we’re just looking and trying to figure out what we’re doing next.”
50 Cent is currently busy with his upcoming Netflix series that is based on the rapper’s The 50th Law book.
