The Trap Muzik artist T.I is looking for a suitable Verzuz opponent and challenges 50 Cent and doesnt mind if he brings with him Eminem or Dr. Dre.
“For your birthday I offer you a challenge, sir,” T.I. boldly wrote on social media on Monday (July 6). “Pull yo ass up, man with 20 of your records, man and sit cross from me and get this work, man. But I understand if you don’t want to answer that challenge because last time you got challenged, Kanye West dusted yo ass off so, you might not want to do that!”
The Verzuz challenge is an album sales batte 50 Cent started in 2007 with his album Curtis against Kanye’s album Graduation. At the time, the artist arrogantly proclaimed he would retire if Kanye’s album could beat his own. This was an attempt to shift the music industry towards sales analytics.

Both albums launched on September 11, 2007 and after one week, Kanye’s album left 50 Cent in the dust with 957,000 copies sold whereas 50 Cent sold only 691,000 copies.
After the loss, 50 Cent did not retire.
T.I challenged 50 Cent into the Verzuz arena where fans would get their money’s worth. Both Hip Hop legends have sold millions of records and many Billboard hits.
“Guess who ain’t scared of your muthafuckin’ ass, 50?” T.I. mocked. “Bring your hit records with you. You and Dr. Dre and Eminem and gotdamn G-Unit … y’all bring y’all’s asses out. Come see the king.”
T.I also gave a message to Kevin Hart, who is celebrating his 40th Birthday to let 50 Cent know of the challenge. Kevin Hart couldn’t believe his ears when he received the message.

“I know it’s your birthday and I celebrate you but if you get a chance, please tell 50 to bring his ass out here and get this smoke.”
50 Cent has yet to respond to the rapper.
