Styles P, one of Verzuz most valuable players, says he’ll cut ties with the livestream event if Triller can’t figure things out with Swizz Beatz and Timbaland … and he’s urging the hip hop community to do the same.
We spoke with the LOX rapper Wednesday who says if he was on Triller’s board, he’d do anything possible to make it right with Swizz and Timbo, the founders of Verzuz.
TMZ broke the story, Swizz and Timbaland filed a $28 million lawsuit against Triller Tuesday claiming Triller has missed significant payments since acquiring Verzuz in 2021.
Styles P says if those allegations are true, it feels like some serious culture vulture conduct, and he’s advising the entire hip hop community to distance itself from the livestream giant if nothing is resolved.
Interestingly enough, when we spoke to Timbaland at the height of the Verzuz movement, he was pretty confident that selling the hot commodity would ruin the magic … and while the magic isn’t necessarily ruined, it’s certainly going through some tough times.
And here we are two years later … mo money, mo problems just like B.I.G. said it would be.
