During his appearance on Drink Champs, the Tappahannock native revealed that he had been approached about participating in a Verzuz against his “New Flame” collaborator.
“They want me and Usher to do it,” he said. “It only makes sense but it’s got to make more sense. I would want to celebrate him and his life just as much as [I would want to celebrate] my stuff. I can’t act like he ain’t a pioneer, as well.”
Breezy also weighed in on the idea of battling Drake after N.O.R.E. suggested it would be the “best battle [he] could ever think of.”
“That would be a formidable champ,” Brown said. “But you’ve got to think [about it]. When we go back to genres, [do] you know what the consensus was? ’No, they don’t [make] the same music.’”
The “Fine China” singer elaborated by noting that he sings on about “95 percent” of his songs.
“I ain’t ducking no smoke. At the same time, I know he’s a formidable opponent,” he added. “I know that n*gga got hits just like I’ve got hits.”
Previously, Brown shared disinterest in doing a Verzuz battle.
“Me at my career now, I ain’t hanging no towel up,” he told Big Boy. “I don’t feel that I want to go up against somebody that might not be in there. It’s too much of a Verzuz for me. I don’t want to have to overshadow anybody or [have people say], ‘Damn, that boy killed this person.’ I don’t even want to go back and forth with none of that.”
“I’ll do some Verzuz in like 15 years when I [have] gray hairs and all that sh*t,” he jokingly added.
Chris Brown insinuates that #verzuz is more for people on the last leg in their career, when speaking about why he’s not big on the idea of doing one (just yet)
