Nelly and Ludacris finally delivered the Instagram Live battle fans have been waiting for. And like any epic Verzuz livestream, the event has inspired a slew of hilariously savage reactions and memes.

Last night, the hip-hop superstars went round for round in a battle of hits, revisiting iconic fan-favorite tracks. Nelly and Luda kicked off the event by acknowledging each other's achievements.

"Your longevity is impeccable, it's worth commending, you know what I mean?" Nelly told Ludacris. "You bust ass every year to make sure you were coming for the No. 1 spot ... It's my pleasure and it's an honor today, my brother, to be rocking with you. I'm glad that our rookie class is the best class of our hip-hop era."

The rappers dug deep into their discographies to play their classic tunes, however, Ludacris also took the opportunity to bless fans with some unreleased music. He first teased a snippet of a track with Timbaland and Lil Wayne titled "Silence of the Lambs." Then he delivered a catchy new tune featuring Chance the Rapper.

Understandably, fans went into the event with high hopes, but from the get-go the livestream was plagued by repeated connection issues on Nelly's part caused delays and even lack of audio at times. Even Luda had a few savage comebacks for Nelly's wifi dilemma, saying "Your Wi-Fi needs some milk." The issues were so reminiscent of Teddy Riley and Babyface's failed battle weeks earlier, even Riley chimed into the live commenting a shady "lol."

In the aftermath of Nelly and Luda's wifi-plagued battle, fans are taking to social media to roast the boomers. Scroll down to check out some of the most hilarious reactions.
