iTunes Review

In a Major Way was E-40’s first nationwide hit album, and it’s easy to see why. All his work over the previous seven years coalesces here into a unified vision of “mob music.” The hit single “Sprinkle Me” sets the tone for the album, as 40 unleashes an outlandish opening couplet over a beat of Brontosaurus-sized bass: “I be more hipper than a hippopotamus / Get off in your head like a neurologist / Pushin’ more weight than Atlas / Got a partner by the name of 2Pacalypse.” 40 has an unparalleled ability to bend and coil language. He is allergic to anything typical, and like a painter looking for new colors, he is unafraid to invent the words he needs. In “Bootsee” he takes a moment to admonish his enemies: “To tweakers, droamers, drifters, leftovers, geekers, zombies / Folks that steal from they mommies.” Though his style seems outrageous, 40’s tracks remain rooted in the monumental funk of George Clinton and Roger Troutman. Even as they are unlike anything else in hip-hop history, “Da Bumble,” “Spittin’” and “Fed” are every inch as gangsta as anything by Ice Cube or N.W.A.

Second Best!

In my opinion this is E40's second best album. 40's best album is THE HALL OF GAME. With that being said this is still a WestCoast Classic.

The best

This is the best E-40 album out there along side with "The Click" game related, each song express E40's upcoming in the game along with old school house party songs,Smoke N Drank also if you remember the ballers bumping anything it would be "Sidewayz" the way the bass picks up and hits, amazing to say the least. Without a doubt won't regret your $ for satisfaction.

One of the greatest albums of all time!!!

Any true E-40 fan knows this is a classic. Their isn't a bad song on it from start to finish!

Synonymous with Bay Area rap, E-40 garnered a regional following, and eventually a national one, with his flamboyant raps, while his entrepreneurial spirit, embodied by his homegrown record label, Sick Wid' It Records, did much to cultivate a flourishing rap scene to the east of San Francisco Bay, in communities such as Oakland and his native Vallejo. Along with Too Short, Spice 1, and Ant Banks, E-40 was among the first Bay Area rappers to sign to a major label, penning a deal with Jive Records...
