The Verzuz battles have become a staple in the hip-hop genre since the beginning of the pandemic. In a recent interview with Van Lathan and Rachel Lindsay, TDE’s rapper Reason expressed that iconic New York rapper Fabulous can beat the legendary Atlanta star Andre 3000 in a Verzuz battle. While the West Coast artist was simply giving his opinion, it sparked controversy & debate online following his initial comment. Some even accused Reason of clout chasing by making such an unpopular opinion public.

What Was Said In The Interview

“In my opinion, yes, Fabolous is a better rapper. I would love something like that [Verzuz]. But I feel like if you lined up Fabolous and André 3000, I got my money on Fab. That’s how I feel,” is the direct quote from Reason himself that sparked the online debate. Shortly after, he explained that Fabulous has out-rapped Lil Wayne which automatically means he can out-rap Andre. In his own words, “That’s the thing. I don’t know. [Fab] out raps Wayne. If you can out rap Wayne, you can out rap André 3000. He’s out rapped Wayne on records. … I’m not saying it’s easy for Fab, but I think if Fab came in with the mindset of ‘I want the best verse,’ I think Fab can out rap André 3000.”

After TDE’s rapper Reason expressed that New York rapper Fabulous can beat the Atlanta star Andre 3000 in a Versuz battle, he doubled down in a tweet saying that we need the battle to happen:

Who do you think would win in this hypothetical Verzuz battle? Is TDE’s artist Reason onto something or is he delusional? It’s his opinion at the end of the day. Read more of FM Hip-Hop’s featured articles today.
