No date has yet been set for the epic bout, but the rap world’s already starting to weigh in. Yesterday (July 21), Kendrick Lamar spoke out about the battle and now, The Lox, who’ve worked with both producers, are also giving their opinions about the battle.
Styles P also explained why he loves Timbaland as a producer, but also says Swizz is hometown.
“A lot of my favorite Timbaland joints are Justin Timberlake joints and kind of more pop joints,” he said. “I love both of them, they both make great R&B, they both make great hip-hop, they both make great pop and it’ll be great for the culture. Timbaland’s fam but Swizz is immediate fam, so love is love. We’re just interested to see [the battle].”
