Rumors of a possible Travis Scott and Future Verzuz battle set the internet ablaze on Monday evening (January 18), but it doesn’t look like the rumors of the heavyweight matchup are true. Shortly after the chatter started, Future’s manager Anthony Saleh quickly put an end to the idea of anything being in the works at this time.
“I love verzuz but this isn’t true,” Saleh wrote in response to another tweet.
The rumor seems to have been started by a Twitter account by the name of Complex Ambition (unrelated to Complex) and social media took it from there. The account claimed they heard the idea of the potential Verzuz floated on Clubhouse by Timbaland’s manager and Mono Music Group boss Gary Marella.
Regardless, the internet ran with the rumor and the consensus looks to be that Future would’ve had his way with La Flame in a pretty decisive fashion.
“Travis gonna play 90210 in a hit battle and feel all vibey and then Future gonna murder his ass with March Madness,” one fan chimed in. “Travis’s music isn’t made for hit battles.”
The next Verzuz is scheduled for Thursday (January 21) between R&B stars Ashanti and Keyshia Cole. Their matchup has been delayed twice amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
