    Whoaaaaa I thought he would have way more listeners. Guess E-40 is more famous in my mind than he is in real life.

    With Grit & Grind it was evident that E-40 was moving towards a more stridently hyphy, club-influenced sound. Grit & Grind and Breakin' News were transitional efforts (anticipating the sound of Tell Me When To Go-onwards) and both (mostly Grit & Grind) have some of his best music. Basically, if you like what E-40’s doing at the moment, then peep everything he’s done since 2002 (Grit & Grind, My Ghetto Report Card and his recent Block Brochures are, in my opinion, his best albums/series in this time-frame). E-40 is making good music at the moment but I think his best run (with the exception of the filler in The Element Of Surprise) was the mid-late ‘90s. Tha Hall Of Game and Charlie Hu$tle are probably his third and fourth best efforts respectively. Rappers like E-40 that have personality and ability in spades are the dudes that always bring me back to hip-hop…
