E-40’s been spitting the same way since the 90s and it’s still not got old.
He’s got one of the best flows in the game and his lyric skills are up there with the best. Plus, he seems to have an ear for the best instrumentals!
This track is one of his earlier efforts, released in 1995 on In A Major Way. It’s more obvious here that he’s West Coast – his Bay Area ‘hyphy’ style sounds very similar to Southern rap in later years.
This hits outrageously from start to finish, blending piano and funky squeals to great effect, even as E-40 lets loose over the top.
