He leaked the info during an IG Live session with DJ Kid Capri, XXL points out.

"We got Tribe Called Quest and OutKast," Swizz said. "I wasn't even supposed to say that. I might have just fucked that all up."
"We love them and we got patience," he continued. "So, whenever they ready we ready ’cause Verzuz is not just something for the pandemic. It's something for the culture, permanently. That's what I want people to understand. We got so many lined up, we ain't even start yet."

This news comes shortly after OutKast released the expanded 20th anniversary edition of their classic 2000 album Stankonia.

The next one will be T.I. vs. Jeezy on November 19 at 8 PM ET.
