Social Media Celebrates The 1-Year-Anniversary Of The Lox & Dipset Verzuz Battle 

Now ya’ll know we love a good moment in hip-hop, and a year ago today The Lox faced off against Dipset in a Verzuz battle that became the talk of social media for weeks. With a full year going by, social media is celebrating what they call one of the best Verzuz battles to ever take place.

Last year, The Lox and Dipset had Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater packed wall-to-wall, as fans from all over came out to see two of hip-hop’s most iconic groups put on for New York City.

Now ya’ll know, at the end of every battle, people always have their preference on who they think walked away with the winning title. However, based on the reactions from a year ago, and even to this day, many fans continue to crown The Lox as the winners of that historic night.


After that night, The Lox spoke with GQ Magazine about the battle, and when asked why did they think their battle was one of the most talked about battles, Styles P said,

“I believe it was the energy, where both groups come from, what we represent, and when we came into the game. We’re from the same era, but we represent two different things. It was a battle for the city and nobody’s been outside for an event. Then it’s at Madison Square Garden, for all the chips. To say something is for the title of New York, and then have athletes and other artists chime in on it. Young people started doing their homework and looking things up.”

Sheek Louch also said,

“There were so many components to it, from the lead-up, to Styles and Jim going at it all crazy—which was mad entertaining because you didn’t know if one of them was going to snap. Even me and Kiss standing there not saying anything—’What’s on their minds? Where are they at with it?’—and both groups are New York, 100 percent.”


Another classic moment that was a result due to the battle was Fat Joe’s commentary as he reviewed the battle on his Instagram.
