Kevin Hart is ready to go on one of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s “Verzuz” battles. He let it be known while exchanging insults with fellow comedian Affion Crockett on Instagram.
All of the battles have been centered around music so if Hart gets his wish, this would make for the first comedy battle. It’s not clear how a comedic battle would go, but Hart said that he’d be calling Beatz to get things going.
“Man @affioncrockett had me in f——g tears yesterday,” wrote Hart. “My brother @therealswizzz hit me & told me that this is a move that he wanted to make…I didn’t get it at first but brother I now see the light….Calling you ASAP @therealswizzz ….Let’s get to work champ!!!! Your a Genius!!!!!! #ToBeContinued.”
Beatz responded to the “Night School” actor’s post and wrote, “It’s Zone Zone Time ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ VERZUZ COMEDY😂😂😂😂😂 Let’s go.”
Jill Scott and Erykah Badu got over 700 million viewers and the next “Verzuz” battle will be between Nelly and Ludacris.
Hart’s announcement of his interest in a comedy face-off led to comedy fans naming other famous funny people they’d like to see go against each other.
“Dave Chapelle vs. Chris Rock would be a better battle. Throw Martin in the competition too 😂😂😂,” one person suggested.
