Julez Santana has taken to social media to reflect on the one-year anniversary of Dipset’s iconic Verzuz battle against The LOX.

The Harlem rapper posted a carousel of photos from the much-talked-about evening, and in one of the Instagram pics he can be seen giving his Dipset counterparts the side eye.

“1 Year Later N I’m Still Lookin 4 These Ni&&az,” he wrote in the caption. “Nha We Made History Im Happy I Was A part Of It.. Thanks @verzuztv @triller 4 Putting Together A Legendary Event.”

Jadakiss even threw up a few emoji’s in the comments of the post to echo Julez’s sentiment.

Verzuz co-founder Swizz Beats also posted his own photo from the event, and potentially hinted at a “part 2.”

“1yr anniversary of the iconic Verzuz Dipset VS LOX,” he wrote. “Music history was made on this day. Who want pt2 ??????? Shout out to both sides.”

The Dipset and LOX Verzuz was a showdown for the history books. Over five million people tuned in for the battle that took place at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on August 3, 2021.

Following the event, both groups enjoyed a boost in streaming revenue. The LOX’s catalog racked up 3.4 million on-demand streams in the U.S. the week after the showdown. Dipset enjoyed a 117 percent increase, with the Harlem collective jumping from 919,000 in the week ending July 29 to 2 million in the week ending August 5.

Many viewers gave the W to The LOX on the night, thanks in part to a standout performance from Jadakiss, and Juelz couldn’t even deny the group’s undeniable chemistry.

“My take on that night is [The LOX] are a better group than us because they are a group [The Diplomats] is not a group,” Juelz said in an interview with Drink Champs. “We are individual artists that came together as a collective to form what we formed, which is called Dipset.”

He continued: “They came in this game as LOX, they perform as a group. Me and Cam have great records together, but we don’t have those back-to-back records like Styles P and Jadakiss.”

Meanwhile, Juelz Santana has said he isn’t done with Verzuz, recently calling on Lloyd Banks to step into the ring. Fellow Roc-a-Fella rapper Memphis Bleek had also demanded Juelz go against him, but the latter said the former wasn’t up to his standards.

“I WANT BANKS!!! #OffPappers #BackOutSide,” Juelz tweeted in June. “Bleek to EZ.”

Bleek reignited talk of a potential matchup with the Dipset rapper last month, firing a warning shot at his former labelmate during a live show.

“Somebody tell that n-gga Juelz he better be fucking ready for this shit, you know what I mean,” Bleek said before taking a jab at Juelz for using a backing track during his Verzuz battle with The LOX. “This shit real, n-gga. I don’t need no lyrics.”
