Earlier this month, Future got fans talking after he reposted a message of someone saying everyone in Atlanta firmly believes Hendrix would beat Jay-Z in a hypothetical Verzuz battle. “I Promise You, Errbody from Atlanta Feels Like Pluto Can Win A Verzuz Against Hov,” said podcaster and ATL personality Big Bank DTE in a message that Future shared on his IG Stories.
