The long-anticipated Verzuz battle between two transcending legends of reggae music was a big hit. Beenie Man and Bounty Killer have both achieved great commercial acclaim in the United States and possess a treasure trove of various hits.

The Don Da Da’s provided fans with what many believe was the best Verzuz IG Live event yet.

For one, both artists were in the same place, so it was like a classic Jamaican face off. Second, the sound was immaculate throughout and the people listening really felt like they were at the club, a concert. It was a far cry from Babyface and Teddy Riley’s sound scare.

The police even tried to break it up for a minute, but cooler heads prevailed and the law decided to didn’t want to be on the wrong side of history.
