After Embarrassing Jagged Edge Audio Flub, Timbaland & Swizz Beatz Enforce New #VERZUZ Rules

Published: Tuesday 26th May 2020 by Rashad

The highly anticipated Jagged Edge vs. 112 battle on the wildly popular #Verzuz platform may have made history for being its first ever group vs. group showdown, but – like many combatants before them – the encounter was plagued with technical issues, namely on J.E.’s part.

Making them the subject of ferocious roasting on Twitter for their poor audio quality, the hoopla eventually reached the desks of the phenomenon’s creators – Timbaland and Swizz Beatz.

As a result, the duo are enforcing new rules to ensure such never happens again.

New rules coming… #verzuz

A post shared by VERZUZ ( on

After evaluating the embarrassing audio showing on Monday night (May 25), Timbo and Swizz made an announcement.


“You can tell who’s using the set-up and who’s not using the set-up. It’s only a couple of plugs that will change your life. So 112 was using it, and I don’t think Jagged Edge was using it.”

Timbo replied:

“Which threw off the frequency of the whole thing, if one uses it and one doesn’t, it’s all messed up.”

Swizz finalized with:

“We’re going to make that a forcible rule,” Swizz continued, “You cannot do VERZUZ unless you use the technology that we’re sending you, cause we’re sending it to you for a reason.”

    112 dropped hit after hit and JE had nothing of value to come back with. It was embarrassing. And Slim and Mike need to figure out their situation with Daron and Q, because a lot of the vocals in the songs they used to prove that they’re the stronger band belonged to Daron and Q.

    feels like this should’ve been a rule from the get-go. better late than never, i guess.
