Chris Brown worked hard to make himself one of the decorated artists in the hip-hop industry. The rapper is one of the most controversial figures in the rap scene. Recently, with all the hype about a Verzuz battle, Chris shared who he’d be willing to go head-to-head with.
Created during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic, Verzuz TV is a platform that allows musicians to go head-to-head with their most popular records of all time. Regularly averaging one million viewers during each battle, the show has quickly become one of the most-watched and talked about forms of entertainment on the internet.
During the latest episode of Drink Champs, Chris Brown was the guest and he was asked about how he’d feel about stepping into the Verzuz ring. The rapper shared with the hosts, “They want me to do it with Usher,” He added, “It only makes sense, but it’s got to make more sense.”
The musician went on to say that he would want both him and Usher to be celebrated equally in the event of a battle. He stated, “I can’t act like he ain’t a pioneer as well– that’s Usher,” He continued by adding that it would be something the fans would enjoy, but he has too many songs to choose from.
Aside from going head-to-head with the “Nice & Slow” artist, Brown was asked (around the 54:32 mark) what his thoughts would be if he got the call that a “one-on-one” with Drake had been arranged. Brown admitted, “That would be a formidable champ,” Elaborating further, Brown noted that he sings on about “95 percent” of his songs. He also again touted Drake as “formidable” while comparing their respective catalogs. Check out his interview below.
