Battle of the Bay: E-40 and too briefly known as the following ‘Verzuz’ battle
Yay Areeeeeea! Two of Northern California’s rap legends compete in the next “Verzuz” matchup! E-40 and Too Short were added to the bill just before Christmas.
Bay Area locals can now stock up on their scrappas and pull out the stunna goggles without lenses, as the OGs are scheduled to be hit on Saturday, Dec. 19 at 5:00 p.m. PST / 8:00 p.m. EST.
Between the two legendary rappers, there are hits on hits on hits that span decades. E-40, also known as Forty Water, is from the town of Vallejo and Too Short will be reappearing in East Oakland.
That news comes as another Oakland native, Keyshia Cole, was about to face Ashanti on Saturday, but the much-anticipated Battle of Verzuz was postponed to January 9, 2021 after Ashanti announced it about two hours before the battle she tested positive for Covid-19.
Since we can’t get much excited these days, fans used social media to express their anger over the canceled fight.
I mean, I was in the mirror trying to find my baby phat jacket from high school when the news came that Ashanti caught the virus.
She went to her Instagram account to address disappointed fans and explain what happened. Ashanti was in Kenya just days before the battle, but she assured fans that she had followed safety protocols and had indeed been exposed to the virus by a relative.
There was still hope that she could join the battle from home, but when she continued live, the Verzuz official team announced the new date for the battle.
Keyshia Cole then came to Ashanti live to show her love and support and expressed that she was only interested in Ashanti getting better and that women’s empowerment will happen next month.
In all seriousness we hope Ashanti will be better soon and in the meantime I’ll be stupid one time before we finish 2020!
