Too Short and E-40 don’t want you to get it twisted … they’re buddy-buddy now, but there’s gonna be plenty of smack talk leading up to and during their rap battle … and it’s already heating up.
The Bay Area rappers joined us on “TMZ Live” Friday ahead of their highly-anticipated matchup on “Verzuz,” and we asked them if they’re really going to keep it friendly during Saturday’s match.
Short and 40 say don’t let their chummy attitudes fool you … they’re coming out swinging. In fact, each of ’em threw a jab or 2 while we were talking to them.
Remember … this week in Bev Hills, Too Short made it sound like it was going to be all love between them — and nothing like the beef-fueled “Verzuz” Gucci Mane and Jeezy put down.
But, now, as they get close to game time … their competitive juices are flowing.
Still, they both agree on this — the showdown’s gonna be an educational trip down memory lane, with plenty of fireworks and, yeah … trash-talk.
