Swizz Beatz & Timbaland reunited on VERZUZ for their first rematch tonight. Missy Elliott wished Swizz and Timbaland good luck in a brief video before the match. Their face-off included songs they worked on with Aaliyah, DMX, Missy Elliott, JAY-Z, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Drake, Lil Wayne, and more. Find the playlist below.
The two producers and VERZUZ founders sold the company to Triller in March, sharing portions of the equity in the new combined company with the artists who appeared in the series up through that point. Swizz Beatz recently oversaw the completion and release of the first posthumous DMX album Exodus.
