This was easily the longest session VERZUZ has done to date. And to be honest, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
Following Wu-legends Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, VERZUZ celebrated soul and funk when they invited both The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire to the set. An entertaining – albeit bittersweet, as group members from both sides have either retired or passed away – show hosted by Steve Harvey (who decided to bring out all of his “Joker via Batman: The Animated Series” suits for the job), the two groups performed a plethora of their classic, heavily-sampled, and influential songs.
To be honest, this writer didn’t keep “score” of who “won” each round (Billboard, however, has a comprehensive track-by-track review) because A: the music and performances were too good to really care and B: it was really long (the whole set took roughly four hours).
The DopeHouse does, however, have your baby-making sessions covered with a comprehensive playlist of the entire night. Available on Apple Music, Spotify, and Tidal, the 50 song run can be enjoyed below.
Press play and vibe out.
