Posted by

It looks like Mannie Fresh will battle veteran producer Scott Storch on Instagram Live, replacing Storch’s original opponent, T-Pain. The festivities kick off at 9 p.m. EST on Wednesday (April 1).

Swizz Beatz made the announcement via Twitter, writing, “Attention. We have a change of plans for tonight !!! We now have @manniefresh vs scottstorchofficial 9pm est on live. Let’s the games begin !!!!! @timbaland the paperwork is fully in.”

T-Pain wanted to make it clear it was Swizz and Timbaland’s decision to have him replaced.

“Bro. I was ready,” he tweeted on Wednesday (April 1). “Dub or L I stand behind my shit. Tim and Swizz hit me and said they were lookin at comments and came to the fact that producer vs songwriter just doesn’t make sense. I didn’t back out lol I was ready to have fun on live shit. Its comin tho.”

Mannie and Storch are among the many artists taking to Instagram Live during the coronavirus pandemic in an effort to stay connected to their fans and keep themselves occupied at the same time. D-Nice, Lord Finesse, DJ Premier, Erykah Badu and Questlove are just a sliver of those participating in the online “social distancing parties.”
