This time Verzuz is celebrating the holidays on Saturday with a face-off between Bay Area’s legends, E-40 and Too Short.

spoke with Complex as they were gearing up for their battle, explaining that regardless of what happens in the end, the event is a victory for the Bay.

No matter how it comes out, no matter who they think got the most hits or whatever, it’s still a win-win,” E-40 said. “It’s putting an eye on the Bay. We never get our shine like we should, and this is a great opportunity, so I appreciate Swizz Beatz and Timbaland and Larry Jackson and everybody over at Verzuz for including us.”

Too Short also chimed in saying, “We kind of have a clear-cut friendship and a clear-cut competition going at all times. This is not going to be any different. It’s still like, as much as that’s my boy—and we’re going to laugh before, during, and after—we’re still trying to show up and shine and make this look good for the Bay and for our individual selves.”

Tonight quarantine and tune into Verzuz, said to be the most expensive installment yet, with a estimated production budget of $500,000.
