Verzuz is teasing a legendary clash which will see the Isley Brothers take on the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire, along with a Method Man and Redman match and a mystery re-match they say will be announced in the future.
The announcement was made after the epic showdown on Saturday night between the Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon and Ghostface Killah take place. The Verzuz features guest appearances from Cappadonna, Masta Killa, and Inspectah Deck. There was great reception of the anticipated episode by fans and viewers who reveled in the music of yesteryear.
