Verzuz: Nelly vs Ludacris start time

The Nelly vs Ludacris Verzuz is about to begin, at 7 p.m. Eastern | 4 p.m. Pacific today (May 16).

On Saturday nights, we watch Verzuz. Nelly vs Ludacris is this week's big battle, as the icons of late 90'sand early 00's rap duke it out for online supremacy (and our quarantainment).

When does the big battle go down? How can you watch online? We've got the answers to all these questions, and a couple of predictions.

This duel follows record-breaking online fracases between Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, and Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, and seeks to set the bar even higher. 

Asking around our virtual offices, our money is on Luda to wax Nelly with a fast and furious mix of hits. No matter if you're consuming chicken and beer or if you wanna go and take a ride with me, you can't argue about who's got more albums and more memorable bangers.

How to watch Verzuz online

You've got a wide array of options, but the easiest (probably) is to open Nelly or Ludacris' Instagram pages, and tap on the big LIVE button. We thought the battle could go down at verzuztv on Instagram, but they are directing folks to the rappers individual pages. 

Thankfully, you can just open the Verzuz Instagram account on your web browser, and view the live story by clicking on the big LIVE button. If it doesn't appear, make sure you're following Verzuz and refresh the page. It should appear in the menu on the right side of your screen.
