E-40 to Release His New Album ‘Gift of Gab’ in June [PHOTO]
Bay Area legend E-40 has been in the rap game since the early 1990s and he’s still kicking those linguistics. The veteran rhyme-slinger has announced that he’s releasing a new project in June.
E-40 will drop his 25th (yes, his 25th) solo album called The Gift of Gab on June 29. The 50-year-old rhymer unveiled the cover art of the album on his Instagram account. The artwork features the definition of “the gift of gab” which perfectly describes 40 Water.
The album title was also inspired by E-40’s song “Where’s the Party At" from his 1993 album, The Mail Man.
In one verse, he spits, “Forget it mane I can’t lie / I'm drunk as a skunk but I'm nothin' fly / I shoots the game, the gift of spit / The gift of gab, boy, the gift is ripped / Good with the skill that makes ya feel it / Those that don't wanna feel it need to kill it.”
E-40 didn’t reveal the tracklist but be on the look out for it because it's coming real soon.
Last month, E-40 and his cousin B-Legit released their collaborative album, Connected and Respected. Both men have been making music for over 30 years. E-40 is among the first wave of rappers on the independent scene in the 1990s with his Sick Wid It Records label. 40 Water is also known for introducing the Yay Area slanguage like broccoli ("marijuana"), Po-Po ("police") and Fetti ("money").
In the meantime, peep E-40's icy pendent that's dripping with diamonds below.
