How to watch Verzuz: The LOX vs Dipset on Instagram Live and Triller
New York will definitely in the building when we watch Verzuz: The Lox vs Dipset live stream tonight. Yes, the iconic rap groups are taking to the stage at MSG for what may be the biggest Verzuz ever. They'll even have a live audience.
Watching the opening rounds for ourselves, we have the questions. One: Where was Cam'Ron and why was he late? Two: Why is Dipset rapping over their own vocals? It almost seems like Lox has this one locked already.
And even though each group isn't hurting for members, we expect a lot of features to get brought up. If the night goes by without a tribute to the dearly departed Earl Simmons (DMX), with "Money, Power & Respect," we'll be shocked.
Dipset has a truckload of bangers to go to playlist-war with, and we expect a lot of energy when "Dipset Anthem" plays at The Hulu Theater at MSG (not The Garden).
This live event almost seems like the furthest thing from a Verzuz event, which sprung out of the socially distanced requirements of the pandemic. But we're not complaining.
So, if you couldn't get a ticket at a decent price (the cheapest on Ticketmaster are currently $206 a pop), we've got all the details you need.

For those unfamiliar with Verzuz, these shows are informal competitions between artists. Each superstar plays one of their hits, followed by the other, volleying back and forth like a tennis match. Then it's up to the public to decide (voicing their opinions in the comments and on social media) who won.
Verzuz has been massively popular, and Swizz Beats (the event's co-creator) announced that the previous battle (Gucci Mane vs Jeezy) broke an "all-time livestream viewership record," with 9.1 million streamers watching along. That's a massive multiple of the prior most popular Verzuz, when Brandy vs Monica had an estimated apex of 1.2 million viewers.
How to watch Verzuz: The Lox vs Dipset on Instagram
If you're OK watching on a phone or laptop, go ahead and open the Verzuz IG account and click on the LIVE button. They may direct you to the individual artists' accounts, we'll see then.
There's typically a short wait from the 9:30 p.m. ET start time before the actual festivities begin, so you have time to pour a nice beverage if you haven't already.
