Mary J. Blige says she’s not interested in participating in an episode of Verzuz. In a clip circulating on social media, the legendary rapper explained she doesn’t care about the show. She made the comments while making sure the audience knew she meant no disrespect to Swizz Beatz and Timbaland

“Let me just say this. I love Swizz. That’s my friend, that’s my brother. That’s my people. I just don’t care about no Verzuz. I don’t wanna be up there. And it’s no disrespect. I just don’t care. Like, I don’t need to say I had the hottest– I know I had some of the hottest records. I know I got a cr*zy catalog.”

As for who she would want to face if she did do the show, she added: “I mean there’s so many people that have great music out there. I mean, there’s so many women that have just catalogs, you know. So, I don’t like the putting everybody up against each other. I don’t like it, I mean, I could just put my shit on and just walk away. I could put the What’s The 411 album on and just walk away.” Check out Blige’s full comments on Verzuz below.

Blige right now, but um, right now, it’s not something that’s on the top of my list.” Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are currently gearing up for a return to the iconic show.
