The Swizz Beatz & Timbaland ran Verzuz series is one of Hip-Hop’s most entertaining gems in recent years. This Thursday, May 26th, legendary rap acts UGK will be battling 8Ball & MJG in Atlanta on Verzuz. The entire battle can also be streamed on the mobile app Triller at 8:00 pm EST on Thursday.

Both sides have memorable songs in their discographies. Depending on what tracks will get matched against in each round, I could see the battle going either way. Check out the official Instagram post from the Verzuz account previewing this legendary match-up:

UGK Vs. 8Ball & MJB: Songs We’ll Likely Hear Thursday Night

An obvious pick for UGK’s arsenal is easily International Players Anthem (I Choose You) which features Outkast, another iconic Southern rap group. Not only is it one of their most significant records, but arguably a standout classic in the entire genre. While 8Ball & MJG have songs that can contend, it’ll stilljaUG be a hard record to beat with just any piece.

The duo also featured on Jay-Z’s smash single “Big Pimpin’,” which currently has over 50+ million views on Youtube alone. 8Ball & MJG have some hits under their belt, too, with songs like “Stay Fly” & “Space Age Pimpin’” that will go crazy during the Atlanta battle this week. If you haven’t heard any of these records, take a listen down below:

Who Will Be The Victor Thursday Night?

Who do you think will win? UGK battling 8Ball & MJG is a perfect match-up for any Southern Hip-Hop fan. They both have numerous songs together, but just as many as individual duos. And last, we hope to see Pimp C get tons of love & praise after this new installment of the Verzuz series.
