EDITORS’ NOTES

One of the Bay Area's original rap stars, with a resume stretching back to 1990, Vallejo native E-40 is a living legend who refuses to ghostride off into the sunset. Blessed with one of the industry's most unique and instantly recognizable flows, he's been steadily making hits since day one: first with The Click and then as a solo artist, all while acting as an elder statesman and mentoring generations of young talent. Released in the spring of 2013, The Block Brochure: Welcome to the Soil 1, 2, & 3 is an extensive, 60-track triple album that finds him collaborating with pretty much every West Coast rapper you could think of, including fellow O.G.s Too Short ("Be You"); Snoop, Daz, and Kurupt ("What You Smoking On"); Spice 1 and Celly Cell ("The Other Day Ago"); JT the Bigga Figga and Cellski ("With the Sh*t"); and even Hieroglyphics ("40 and Hiero"). Though the sheer volume of material here is a bit overwhelming, it's always good to hear 40 Water do his thing, and he still sounds great. Once you get through this, check out parts 4, 5, and 6 for another hot 60. 

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Put it in the air - stupid slaps

Grew up on E-40, bought a couple of the songs off this album, bout to cop the whole album on pay day.

46 and still at the top!

Earl Stevens is 47 years old and still takes cuts with the newest in pop culture. Eventhough most of these songs have already been released (seriously iTunes?) he has overwhelming musical talent. 5 STARS
