JAY-Z appeared on Twitter Spaces with Genius' Rob Markman as the duo promoted Alicia Keys' eighth studio album, titled "Keys," Billboard reports.

During the conversation, Markman asked the rapper if he would ever participate in a Verzuz battle, a popular concert series created by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland.

"No one can stand on that stage with me. It's not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me. You got to stand in front of the 'Grammy Family Freestyle' live. No one has ever seen me perform that, you got to stand in front of that? That ain't never going to happen," he said, confidently, according to Billboard.

“Ain’t nobody that can stand on that stage with me. I ain’t gonna lie, no disrespect. Everyone’s amazing, they’ve done what they’ve done. No one can stand on that stage with me. Theres not a shot,” he said.

Verzuz started in March 2020 during the pandemic and T-PainAlicia Keys, John LegendBrandy, MonicaRick RossDMX, Snoop DoggD’Angelo and others have all participated.

During the interview, they also discussed the infamous incident of Lil Mama crashing their performance of "Empire State of Mind" at the 2009 MTV VMAs.

When Markman asked the hip-hop hitmaker if he had forgiven Lil Mama for her major faux pas, the 4:44 artist said "of course."

"C’mon. Don’t do that. That’s our sister. Man, we love her. I wouldn’t recommend people just jumping on other artists’ stages,” he said.

“She’s a New Yorker. She got excited. Things happen. Of course, we love her, yes, she’s forgiven. It’s all love and she was coming from a place of love, it’s just [she] may have been a little too excited,” he added. 

His reflections come weeks after Keys spoke about the matter on Revolt's Drink Champs with N.O.R.E and DJ EFN.  

“Basically, I remember absolutely nothing. I think I was so focused on performing. Because when you perform, it’s a lot. You gotta hit it. You gotta nail it. You gotta kill it. It has to be perfect,” Keys said, according to iHeartRadio.
