VERZUZ co-founders Swizz Beatz and Timbaland took to IG to showcase the next battle that’s set to take place in person live from New York City.

“The summer ain’t over!!!” Swizz wrote on IG making the announcement that Fat Joe and Ja Rule are set to go head-to-head on September 14. If you can’t make it in person, you can watch it live in the Triller app or on Verzuz TV beginning at 9PM ET / 6PM PT.

While it’ll certainly be a matchup you’ll want to see, some Hip Hop fans may be disappointed that Ja won’t be lining up to battle 50 Cent. Especially after Ja said he’d rather box 50 than take him on in VERZUZ.

He gave a pretty good reason for not wanting to ignite his beef with 50. "Listen, man, I love Verzuz, I love what it is, I love to see artists getting in there and doing the s*** — but if I did one, if I did do a Verzuz, I would want my Verzuz to be fun," he said.

"That’s what Verzuz is supposed to be about the celebration of music and the art, and the artistry. So, I would want my Verzuz to be fun, and filled with love in the room and s***, and that sort of thing. I’m too old to be in Verzuz beef, and to be in with my team of n****s, all my team of n****s, we’re like, ‘Come on, man.’ I’m 44, dog. Just get a boxing ring and we get in there, and we do that. All this other funny nutty s***, we ain’t doing that, man.”
