Swizz Beatz and Timbaland attend The Dean Collection X BACARDI Untameable House Party on Dec. 4, 2015 in Miami.

Verzuz, the breakout live-streaming battle series co-helmed by legendary hip-hop producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, will now be available on Apple Music and Beats 1.

Each battle will be simulcast live on the music streaming service for free, at the same time it streams on the Verzuz Instagram account. After the live battle, music fans will be able to relive the musical greatness by watching it on-demand via the series' exclusive partnership with Apple Music.

This Wednesday (July 22) will bring a face-off between Snoop Dogg and DMX, beginning at 5:00 p.m. PT.

Before the big showdown -- being billed as "the battle of the dogs" -- fans can get ready by tuning in to the official Snoop Dogg and DMX Cheat Sheet playlist curated by Apple Music host Lowkey.

Apple Music and Beats 1 previously live streamed the very special dueling piano Juneteenth episode of Verzuz, featuring Alicia Keys and John Legend, which can be enjoyed on-demand.
