Last night (Easter Sunday 2021) was EPIC! Two of the GREATEST groups in HISTORY sat down TOGETHER and we had a CELEBRATION! Earth,Wind & Fire versus The Isley Brothers! DECADES of HITS between the TWO going back to 1959! TIMELESS CLASSICS and STORIES for days… Steve Harvey HOSTED and he could BARELY contain his FANDEMONIUM at basking in the PRESENCE of these two JUGGERNAUT acts under the same ROOF! It was a PARTY of MUTUAL ADMIRATION between the GREATS and we were all TOO THRILLED to see it… The MEMORIES, the MOODS, the OUTFITS and the SOUNDTRACK curated by the ICONIC DJ DNICE to BOOT! It was VERZUZ SLASH The STEVE Harvey Show SLASH Club Quarantine that last 4 hours and actually STARTED right on TIME! NEW JACKS take notes, this was a MASTERCLASS in MUSIC theory… for those that MISSED IT.. REVISIT the WHOLE AFFAIR after the JUMP!!!
Did you miss the EPIC SHAOLIN meeting of the MINDS between WU-TANG BROTHERS, Raekwon & Ghostface Killa!? The CELEBRATION was UNMATCHED. But in case you missed out on the PARTY–revisit all the FEELS right here after the JUMP!
‘Verzuz’ is now a CULTURAL phenomenon that was BIRTHED during a time when we needed it MOST–during the PANDEMIC!
When we were all on LOCKDOWN, MEGA producers and artists in their own right, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz CREATED something to BRING together the WORLD during a TIME when normal day- to day activity STOPPED as we KNEW it, and we were CONFINED to our homes with LIMITED outlets for ENTERTAINMENT. The two BRIDGED the gap between GREAT musical TALENT and their FANS during a TIME where that type of INTERACTION was NULL and VOID!
Out of necessity ‘VERZUZ’ was BIRTHED–a showcase of ICONIC musical acts’ CATALOGS– a celebration of their IMPACT on the CULTURE and a ‘family reunion’ of sorts with the WEALTH of NOSTALGIA and ‘feel good’ moments we have ALL experienced listening to our FAVES in their ELEMENT. One may be SURPRISED to know that since it’s INCEPTION, the two CREATORS had not seen each other in person!
Some insiders may have known, but it wasn’t until recently that we found out that Timbaland and Swizz had not seen each other since they created this ENTITY that has connected the WORLD… until NOW!
