So E-40 dropped a 3 Lp album this past week, it spans 54 tracks and features a ridiculously strong guest list. You would think that the LP itself will tend to repeat itself, it doesn’t at all. Sonically, most of the tracks are geared to take advantage of bass heavy cars indigenous to E-40′s Oakland but you don’t feel like you heard the same song twice. It’s amazing to think that an artist creeping in his second decade of music would be able to release this amount of songs barely a year after a double lp release, E-40 does it with ease. I feel that Hip Hop in 2012 is youth orientated but pressure from the older generation means that a lot of homage has to be paid within the first LP or mixtape (Drake, i feel really pushed himself on his 2nd LP as he had rid himself of doing that homage stuff either in his 1st LP or appearing on close to 40 singles in that time). E-40 remains fresh by just being himself, hell he even still influences slang better than any other rapper. This LP is filled with them, its even better than a self help book.
