Next Verzuz: UGK, 8Ball, and MJG will battle classic hits ...

UGK and 8Ball & MJG are set to face off in a forthcoming Verzuz on Thursday (May 26) at 8 p.m. ET. The event, which will take place live in Atlanta, will air on Triller and Verzuz''s social media accounts.

When Bun B revealed that he had spoken with Verzuz CEOs Timbaland and Swizz Beatz about going head to head with his Memphis counterparts, reports of UGK and 8-Ball & MJG reportedly participating in a fight first surfaced in May 2020.

In 2021, the Texan announced that he would be competing with UGK in a Verzuz, and that he would be going against 8Ball and MJG during an appearance on the Donnie Houston Podcast. I know I know Im doing a Verzuz, but it''s not Texas-based, he said. Im doing Verzuz. It will be UGK against 8Ball and MJG, according to the Texan. North Mound will be the Texan

During the most recent Verzuz matchup between Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Three Six Mafia, the platform had a record record, and a physical confrontation ensued between Gucci Mane and Jeezy.

During an interview with B High ATL, Bun believes the UGKs battle with 8Ball & MJG would be great for the culture and both groups fans, but hes since expressed disgruntled desire for fans to watch the music and see if any confrontations will ensue. I think it would be beneficial, but you should understand that a lot of people are tuned to Jeezy and Gucci Mane[s Verzuz for the wrong reasons.

It was a lot of thought that a fight was going to happen when people knew they were able to. Both of them walked in as they were the man they were, and both walked out the guy they were.

UGK and 8Ball & MJG would have been capable of working under these circumstances. The fans are presumably still interested in seeing it [and] would do it if they were called on, but it''s a little different today.
