Usher and Swizz Beatz went head-to-head for an installment of a Verzuz battle and the former found himself sharing his take on the trajectory of female rap.

During the conversation as part of the Beatz/Timbaland-curated series, the chart-toppers discussed who should partake in the next battle, to which Swizz mentioned Lil' Kim and Nicki Minaj. It sounds like an appropriate match of artists to compare catalogues, but Ursh wasn't entirely on board with the idea, admitting with some hesitancy that Mianj "is a product of Lil Kim." Naturally, his words struck a chord with longtime Barbz and the age-old debate almost immediately made its way to the Twitterverse. Scroll on below to see what users had to say!
