Timbaland and Swizz Beatz's Verzuz series, a mid-pandemic creation that's next set to pit Jeezy and Gucci Mane against each other, has been given the oral history treatment. As should have been expected, the results make for a fascinating deep-dive into one of the leading examples of how it's most certainly possible to keep creative during the COVID-19 era.

Tucked into the Gerrick D. Kennedy-penned piece is an admission from Swizz Beatz that the showdown between Mannie Fresh and Scott Storch, who was originally supposed to go up against T-Pain, marked an "unfair" pairing.

"I think that was an unfair Verzuz, to be honest," Beatz said in the GQ piece, out Thursday. "I think we owe Scott Storch a rematch, and I think we owe Mannie Fresh a better match. I think that one was a little bit off with the curation."
