In the winter 2014 edition of XXL Magazine there is well written article by Dan Rys featuring an interview with E-40, coincidentally titled “All Due Respect.”
E-40 goes into great detail about being an OG, and how he has been releasing albums for 26 years. He also speaks about his new role in the rap game and how he has evolved since he got started as a youth.
40 Water also explains why he is able to release so many albums each year, and he even tells his secret to dropping multiple albums at once. During the interview he states that he will still be releasing albums even when he is an old man. From the sounds of it he is definitely not planning on slowing down anytime soon.
After reading the entire interview we flipped to page 46 to find a page titled “Hustler Musik”, which features a full spread dedicated to every E-40 album from 1988 to 2014.
We couldn’t help but notice that the some of the album covers were taken directly from our website!
It’s nice to see professionals in the industry using Rap Music Guide as a tool to research E-40’s discography. Next time we would appreciate a shout out though! Don’t be afraid to cite your sources.
As the great rapper E-40 said in the XXL interview… “See, I’m a OG so I gotta lace these unlaced people out there.”
Shout out to the Amassador of the Bay, Charlie Hustle aka The Ballatician!
