Last summer Sean Paul expressed interest in doing a Verzuz battle but with no opponent, the same way DeAngelo did. He told Two Bees TV, “The whole VERZUZ, I respect everybody that did it; I respect the people that put it on, respect the platform, but that was just the stance I took on it. It is called VERZUZ battle and I don’t wanna battle nobody in the music. I wanna build champions; I don’t wanna kill champions,” at the time, quoting Vybz Kartel.

He did however give an update to The Breakfast Club on whether he would do a Verzuz Battle or not. He said, “I have like a niche space in the business, almost. You know what I mean? So, for me, it’s kind of weird to bother somebody from my own genre and I’m one of the most successful there.”

After complimenting the Bounty Killer vs Beenie Man battle, Angela Yee said another dancehall battle was needed. He then guessed who his fans wanted him to go up against and said, “so you want to see me go at Shaggy then?” He added, “I got 19 songs in the top 20” compared to Shaggy’s 3. He went on to say “For me it’s just an unfair thing. It’s like putting Mike Tyson with his boss, Muhammad Ali. It’s different timeframes.”

So that pretty much settles that. Numbers don’t lie. Let’s see if he’s going to be allowed to do a show all by himself or not or rather if Shaggy and his fake accent chooses to respond to what was said.
