LUDACRIS, NELLY: *Verzuz* Recap

Written by on May 18, 2020

It was Atlanta versus St. Louis in the latest Verzuz battle, which saw Ludacris and Nelly going head-to-head.

The superstar showdown almost didn’t happen. Saturday night’s hit battle was delayed by nearly an hour as Nelly battled with technical difficulties. He blamed rain and “the clouds” for his poor internet connection, while Luda tried to keep 300,000 plus viewers entertained. It got to the point where they were about to reschedule the battle, but Nelly finally managed to get a few more bars of signal. 

At one point, Luda killed time by playing a new song produced by Timbaland featuring Lil Wayne, called “Silence of the Lambs.” He also premiered a new song with Chance the Rapper. And at the end of the battle, he debuted an unreleased “Money Maker” remix featuring Nelly. And even though most agree that Luda decisively won, it was all love between the competitors, who talked about doing a Ludacris vs. Nelly tour in the future.
