Budden recognizes that neither of them “are big enough to ever make it to the Verzuz stage” but he’s up for a similar match-up.

Joe Budden Accepts Gillie Da Kid’s Proposed “Verzuz” Challenge: “I’m Down!”

We aren't sure if Verzuz is interested in having these two appear on the series, but Joe Budden is willing to face off against Gillie Da Kid. There hasn't necessarily been a proposed Verzuz between these two, but in a recent interview, Gillie said that if he and Budden were to be matched up on the series, he would "sweep" the podcast host "under a f*ckin' rug."

On The Joe Budden Podcast, they replayed the clip, and Budden seemed up for the hypothetical challenge even though they've had tension.

"Now, what I will say before this pod ends...Gillie Da Kid, Wallo, Million Dollaz Worth of Game. I'll oblige," said Budden. "I will. Who knows. Could be right. Gillie, I will do a Verzuz with you, I will. Neither one of us are big enough toe ver make it the Verzuz stage, but I'm cool with that. We could do like a mixtape Verzuz. Leave all the major album joints out. We don't need 'Pump It Up' or 'Yeah That's Us.'"

"Both doing great in podcast land. I'll do a Verzuz with you if you want," he continued, offering to meet Gillie on his home turf in Philadelphia. "We can do it wherever you feel most comfortable at. I'm down!"
