Rumors of a possible Travis Scott and Future Verzuz battle set the internet ablaze on Monday evening (January 18), but it doesn’t look like the rumors of the heavyweight matchup are true. Shortly after the chatter started, Future’s manager Anthony Saleh quickly put an end to the idea of anything being in the works at this time.
It appears that rumors of a Verzuz between Travis Scott and Future have been overblown.
On Monday, a tweet from the account @ComplxAmbition claiming that Timbaland’s manager said they were working out the details for a battle between the two heavyweights went viral.
Gary Marella said it on Clubhouse today, also said Verzuz is working on doing another Sport collaboration and Comedy

The rumor spread online, with fans debating who would win in the face-off. However, Anthony Saleh, who helps manage Future, shot down the rumor.
I love verzuz but this isn’t true https://t.co/FPE2DLwU5h

In another tweet, @ComplxAmbition said that Gary Marella—who works with Timbaland—said it on Clubhouse on Monday.
Marella also did his part to clarify the rumor. “Someone mentioned that pairing on Clubhouse along [with] 3-4 other wishlist pairings they would like to see,” he told Complex. “I simply said we will do what we can to make them happen. We’ve had no conversations [with] Travis or Future yet.”
Travis gonna play 90210 in a hit battle and feel all vibey and then Future gonna murder his ass with March Madness. Travis’s music isn’t made for hit battles ?

This would be a terrible match-up, but the next Verzuz is scheduled for Thursday (January 21) between R&B stars Ashanti and Keyshia Cole. Their matchup has been delayed twice amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
