Details about the Too $hort and E-40's matchup came after the last-minute cancellation of Ashanti and Keyshia Cole's Verzuz due to Ashanti testing positive for COVD-19. The two singers were initially scheduled to face off on Dec. 12, but that has been postponed until Jan. 9. 

In November, Gucci Mane and Jeezy faced off and  kicked off the second season of the Verzuz series. More than 9.1 million people tuned in to watch the legendary showdown.
