Verzuz: The Lox Vs Dipset

The LOX and Dipset faced off at Madison Square Garden's theater for an epic Verzuz battle two years ago. The two legendary New York crew laid down their respective catalogs and allowed the audience to determine the victor. Though most would agree that The LOX won that battle off of the strength of Jadakiss' "Who Shot Ya" freestyle, both crews came together to celebrate their impact on hip-hop.

Sheek Louch reflected on the scenario during a recent sit-down with Vlad TV. He recalled Cam pushing Styles P off of his lawn chair, which started the back-and-forth.

"It was in [Styles P's] eyes, though, to go get at Cam but not on some beef sh*t. In the heat of the moment type shit," he said. He recalled pulling Styles P off of Cam'ron, describing the atmosphere as zoo-like.

He said even his associates from Ruff Ryders were ready to pounce, as did some of the Dipset associates in the building. Sheek said that he was happy it didn't turn into a situation similar to Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Specifically, Sheek was happy that neither anyone from The LOX or Dipset told anyone else to "suck my d*ck."

"You don't diss a man down to that shit. You should know that those words are fighting words," he said. "It should never get to that.
