Dr. Dre's fans were buzzing on Sunday (Jan 24) when the legendary producer took to his Instagram, sharing a video of Eminem rapping, asking "Marshall Mathers vs Who???!!".

The comments section included responses implying that Eminem has no equal. One person commented:

"Nobody don't want these problems", whilst others agreed, stating, "Vs no one." "Period" and "against nobody". Some even suggest Jay-Z might be his only competitor, which has furthered the recent talk of who can battle Hov.

Earlier this month, Kodak Black took to Twitter to challenge Jay-Z to a VERZUZ battle, offering up a portion go his catalog if he loses. "I’ll do a versus wit Jay Z 😈 “IF” he win he get 15 % of my catalog ! I win he make me Vice President of roc nation 🤷‍♂️" the tweet read.

Last month, Jay-Z took to Twitter Spaces last night with Alicia Keys and Rob Markman to discuss and set the record straight on something including whether or not he'd partake in a VERZUZ battle.

When asked if he would ever go against someone, Hov responded: "No one can stand on that stage with me. It’s not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me".

"You got to stand in front of the ‘Grammy Family Freestyle’ live? No one has ever even seen me perform that, you got to stand in front of that? That ain’t never going to happen" he continued.

This comes after a few rappers have spoken up about battling Hov. Rapper Future, who recently performed at Rolling Loud took to the stage claiming "In the streets im bigger then jigga".

Rick Ross expressed in a recent interview with Complex that it was "a possibility that him and Hov would face off".

"Jay-Z… Yeah! Why not?" the Miami rapper said. "To me, that’s what makes VERZUZ special because it brings out the best in both parties. That’s a possibility, but I gotta give my flowers to the big homie. I got to. My homie gave me my first opportunity signing me to Def Jam Records, and he’s one-of-one".
