There's no pussyfooting around the fact that Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Three 6 Mafia are two of the greatest hip-hop groups of all time -- anyone who would dispute that fact should have any credibility revoked on the spot. It was really no surprise that news of a forthcoming battle, nay, a face-off between the two titan-esque entities sparked massive cultural hype.

And while the announcement was initially falsely cited to be a Verzuz production, it would appear that Timbaland and Swizz Beatz have officially stepped forward to change that. As you might know, the battle was originally supposed to take place last night. Instead, Krayzie Bone took to Instagram to confirm the delay, revealing that it would officially be presented on Verzuz after all.

"We have just come to an agreement with @verzuztv and they are now officially involved with the face-off between #Bonethugs and #three6mafia," writes the legendary rapper. "With that being said we have agreed with #versustv to reschedule to a new date that will allow everyone involved an opportunity to set this up the right way with no flaws or interruptions during the face-off."

Be sure to keep an eye out for the new date, as this will be one for the ages. With both groups boasting absolutely ridiculous discographies, it's nearly impossible to predict a "winner" -- save for the obvious, and undeniably cliche answer of us fans. Who do you got walking away with the proverbial title?
