21 Savage Says He Would Beat All Of His 'XXL' Freshman Peers In Verzuz

21 Savage claims that no one in his 2016 XXL Freshman class can beat him in a Verzuz battle. In a recent Clubhouse session, the Atlanta rapper made a big statement, showing Teflon conviction when discussing his odds versus his Freshman classmates in Swizz Beatz and Timbaland's renowned fight series.

"Nobody from that Freshman cover could beat me in a Verzuz," he said. “Nobody.” 21 Savage appeared on the magazine cover alongside Lil Uzi Vert, Kodak Black, Lil Yachty, G Herbo, and Anderson. Paak, Denzel Curry, Dave East, Desiigner, and Lil Dicky are featured.

Others on the Clubhouse call felt Lil Uzi and Kodak would be stiff competition for 21 Savage, but the Slaughter Gang head was adamant that he'd win easily.

“So, you could beat Lil Uzi?” one person asked, to which 21 replied without hesitation: “Hell yeah.”

21 Savage has built a name for himself since his appearance on the Freshman cover in June 2016. Over 60 Billboard Hot 100 successes have included the British-born rapper, including two No. 1 singles: the diamond-certified "Rockstar" with Post Malone and "Jimmy Cooks" with Drake.

He's also had four albums rank in the top five on the Billboard 200, including the chart-topping I Am > I Was and Savage Mode II with Metro Boomin. He has two platinum albums under his belt, Issa Album in 2017 and I Am > I Was in 2018.

Considering 21 Savage's confidence, Lil Uzi Vert and Kodak Black aren't slouched when it comes to chart success. Baby Pluto has performed audience pleasers like the 7x platinum "XO Tour Llif3," "Money Longer," and "You Was Right," while appearing on Migos' chart-topping "Bad and Boujee."

Meanwhile, Yak's discography includes the multi-platinum singles "Tunnel Vision," "ZEZE," and "Lockjaw," as well as "Super Gremlin," one of 2022's most lasting rap tunes.

21 Savage has yet to enter the Verzuz arena but has previously been challenged by Foogiano. The Gucci Mane signee challenged 21 to a battle after he called for city-versus-city competitions, but he was quickly swatted away.

“I swear I can beat Jacksonville by myself, bruh,” 21Savage bragged before Foolio pointed out the rappers in the Florida city are just getting started. “Y’all is,” 21added, “but I’ll beat y’all by myself, though. Facts.”

21 Savage's Verzuz accusation comes only days after the release of his new collaborative album with Drake, Her Loss. Drizzy's subliminal disses have caused quite a commotion, with Megan Thee Stallion, Kanye West, Ice Spice, DRAM, and even Serena Williams' husband caught in the crossfire.

Drake's poison pen looks to have heightened the effect of Her Loss, which is expected to sell between 335,000 and 350,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, strong enough for a Billboard 200 debut at No. 1.
