Swizz Beatz and Timberland’s Versuz battles have offered some truly great face-offs between hip-hop stars. They’ve also catered to some predictable battles that fans truly would pay to see in person. Even celebrities like Will Smith have expressed their interest in partaking in an upcoming Verzuz battle. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alumni recently made it known that he wants to do a rap battle with LL Cool J. Jokingly, the actor admitted that the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer would definitely “body me” in a Verzuz battle. Though, he’ll come prepared with his “secret weapon.”
Will Smith Says His Friend LL Cool J Will “Body Him”
Recently, the King Richard star sat down with Shade 45’s Sway Calloway and Heather B., revealing that he’s spoken with LL Cool J about doing a Verzuz battle with him. Though, due to Will Smith’s time constraints, he’s never had time to actually battle against the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer. If they ever had a chance to do so, Smith jokingly noted that LL Cool J would “body him.”
The actor tried to brush off the comment, but it holds a little bit of truth. Afterall, LL Cool J was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Additionally, he has an entire arsenal of great hits, such as “I’m Bad” and “Mama Said Knock You Out.” LL Cool J will definitely destroy Will Smith in a Verzuz battle.
The King Richards’ Actor Plans To Bring His “Secret Weapon”
Will Smith makes it clear that he won’t do a Verzuz battle without his “secret weapon” DJ Jazzy Jeff. Shade 45’s Heather B. brought up the interesting fact that Smith and LL Cool J hailed from an era where rappers and DJs went hand in hand. Back then, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s DJ Jazzy Jeff turned tables for the star’s biggest songs. Given at how long Smith and Jeff worked together, it could definitely give the former Men In Black star the advantage he needs.
What do you think? Does Will Smith stand a chance against LL Cool J in a Verzuz battle?
