“Kanye was willing to do the Verzuz … He wanted to battle Drake,” Swizz said. “I left that up to them, and that’s what I told to Timb, as well. I was like, ‘Yo, they have to bring that to the table.’ They would have to agree to do that. Kanye was ready, but I don’t know where that’s at now. I’m still leaving it on them.”

Kanye and Drake both have their albums out. Drake’s CLB has sold over 600k units in the first week while Kanye’s Donda sold over 500k. In the second week, West’s album has moved 140k units.
