It’s not that they don’t want to see Kodak Black winning, but few are expecting it this time around.

The Florida spitter took to Twitter on Monday and decided to risk 15 percent of his music catalog as he challenged Jay-Z to a Verzuz battle. His guidelines were easy to follow, too.

“I’ll do a versus wit Jay Z,” he shared. “‘IF’ he win he get 15% of my catalog! I win he make me Vice President of roc nation.”

In the responses to his tweet, hip-hop fans are debating whether or not Yak could pull it off—with most accepting that it’s unlikely for his discography to crush that of Shawn Carter. Timbaland, who co-founded Verzuz, even shared what he thought, dropping some laughing emojis in an Instagram comment.

Hov doesn’t have high hopes for any rapper trying to go against him, recently saying in a discussion with Alicia Keys that nobody “can stand on that stage” with him.

“It’s not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me,” Hov said about his chances of doing a Verzuz. “You got to stand in front of the ‘Grammy Family Freestyle’ live? No one has ever even seen me perform that, you got to stand in front of that? That ain’t never going to happen.”

Kodak Black isn’t the only MC who feels they’re up for the challenge. Last year DMX proposed a faceoff with Jay, and Rick Ross spoke about his Verzuz potential with Jay in a recent interview.

“Jay-Z…yeah! Why not?” Ross said. “To me, that’s what makes Verzuz special because it brings out the best in both parties. That’s a possibility, but I gotta give my flowers to the big homie. I got to. My homie gave me my first opportunity signing me to Def Jam Records, and he’s one-of-one.”
