Houston's rap veteran says he's down for a Verzuz battle with old rival T.I. but only if Swizz Beatz and Timbaland pay the rapper $500,000.
Lil Flip Initially Wanted $3 Million For "Verzuz," Now Down To $500,000
Tip and Lil Flip have been beefing since at least 2005 when they got into a brawl in the Houston neighborhood of Cloverland. T.I. had been claiming the “King of the South” title for roughly two years, which Flip didn’t like.
Their beef has since ended, but the tension between Lil Flip and T.I. was much talked about over a decade ago.
In a recent interview with VladTV, Lil Flip said he’s down to face T.I. in a Verzuz battle — if the price is right. As he explained, Flip got a taste of what Verzuz is like when he was a special guest during the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony versus Three 6 Mafia event last month.
Flip has said he needs to get paid. Although he has significantly reduced his price, as he explained on VladTV.
“At first my number was, like, $3 [million,] and then it was a million, but now after I got a chance to go be on the Verzuz set in person and have fun, anything around the $500K mark is cool because I had so much fun,” Flip said on Vlad TV in the clip below. The Houston rapper later added, “When you’re Flip Mayweather, you don’t pick your opponents. Put them in front of me and I’ll handle my business.”
