Round By Round Break Down of the 112 vs. Jagged Edge Battle

The latest 112 vs Jagged Edge Verzuz Battle pits two of the most popular male R&B groups of the last couple of decades against each other.

We previewed the battle here for details on each group and a break down of their history. You can also listen to their latest singles.

112, as currently constituted, is composed of Slim & Mike, half of the original quartet. It’s hard to talk about 112 currently without talking about what’s going on with their members.  Q Parker and Daron Jones, the other half of the original group are currently suing the other half over finances and the use of the name 112, which Slim and Mike claim to own.

Before the latest break-up, and over the course of their career, which spans about 25 years, 112 released 6 albums.  As the first R&B group signed to Bad Boy Records and the only male singers on the label for a few years, they have countless songs with most of the Bad Boy roster, including several classics with The Notorious B.I.G. and Sean Combs.

Jagged Edge, is another legendary quartet from Atlanta, which consists of twin brothers Brandon and Brian Casey, Richard Wingo and Kyle Norman.  Founded by Kandi Burruss of Xscape, the group was signed by Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def imprint.

Since the aforementioned debut album, Jagged Edge has released 9 albums.  Their 10th album, A Jagged Love Story was announced last year and was supposed to be released, but despite two singles, the album release date is still unknown.
