Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah and Raekwon to battle on Verzuz

Wu-Tang Clan members Ghostface Killah and Raekwon are set to face off in a Verzuz battle.

The online streaming event, which was set up by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland in March last year, pits artists against each other, playing 10 tracks from their respective discographies while the watching audience judges their favourite.

Speaking with Timbaland on Instagram, Swizz Beatz confirmed a Wu-Tang clash is coming, saying: “Wu vs. Wu. Raekwon vs. Ghostface Killah... Dates to come.”

Fellow Wu-Tang member RZA was featured in the first season of Verzuz, taking on DJ Premier in April last year.

Last week D’Angelo hosted the first solo Verzuz event in the series from the Apollo Theare in Harlem, New York. Recent clashes include Ashanti vs Keyshia Cole, E-40 vs Too Short and Jeezy vs Guci Mane.
