During an interview with Fat Joe, Snoop Dogg explained why in his mind he’s the best competition for Jay-Z in the Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s Verzuz battle series.
“Naswas on the rise with [Jay], so it was never like who is the one-one,” he said. “And then Biggie passed away and then Nas had it for a minute And then JAY-Z took it and ran with it for a numerous amount of years. And then50 Centcame and ran with it for a numerous amount of years.
“This is me looking in from the outside, looking at New York rap. So to me, it would be either Snoop versus JAY-Z because he has been the king of New York around the time I was the king of the west.”
