The hip hop artists, DMX and Snoop Dogg went head-to-head in the latest Verzuz battle tonight (July 22). During the match, both men ran through their hits, praising each other and jumping on each other’s songs the entire time.

DMX said he was inspired by Snoop to write “Get at Me Dog,” and later, sang along to Nate Dogg’s hook on “Ain’t No Fun.” See a play-by-play of each round, and listen to the playlist on Tidal below.
