Swizz Beatz & Timbaland ‘Verzuz’ Triller Is The $28 Million Battle We Didn’t See Coming
Wednesday, Aug 17, 2022
Swizz Beatz and TimbalandVerzuz Triller is the battle we didn’t see coming.
After selling their Verzuz concept to Triller where musicians battle each other song-for-song, Swizz and Timbaland are suing the streaming service for not coughing up their coins per their contractual agreement!
According to The Washington Post, Triller—who acquired Verzuz in January 2021—not only allegedly defaulted on their agreement in January 2022 but also missed a large settlement that was due in March. Swizz and Beatz are asking for $28 million plus interest. A Triller rep told TMZ that they hope to amicably resolve what they call a “misunderstanding driven by lawyers.”
“We do not wish to air our dirty laundry in the press, but we have paid Swizz and Tim millions in cash and in stock,” a rep told the outlet—adding, “We hope to resolve this amicably and quickly, and truly hope it’s just a misunderstanding. If we are forced to defend it, we are more than optimistic the truth and facts are on our side.”
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Triller has been accused of failing to hold up their end of the deal as black creators in a partnership with the streaming app have also accused them of missing payments, The Washington Post reports.
