In an interesting turn of events, the next Verzuz battle will take place between Jeezy and Gucci Mane.

The battle, scheduled for Thursday, November 19, was originally scheduled between Jeezy and T.I. but on Saturday all three rappers shared a flyer revealing the new face-off. 

“Now THIS…. Is what the people wants to see,” the “Whatever You Like” artist shared in an Instagram post. “Trap Muzik salutes y’all.”

News of the switcheroo comes after Jeezy revealed in a recent interview that Gucci was his first choice of opponent but was told by Verzuz co-creator Swiss Beats that he “respectfully declined” the offer. 

There was no official word on why Gucci declined the initial offer or what made him change his mind, but regardless, he’s ready for the challenge.

“Tell buddy get ready @verzuzonline nov 19 TrapGod vs SnoCone,” the “Lemonade rapper tweeted

Jeezy also shared the flyer on Twitter and wrote, “SAY lil guwop! SEE YOU ON THE 19th. DONT SEND YA CLONE! BIG SNO.”

The Verzuz battle scheduled to stream live at 8 p.m. ET on Apple Music.
