Here is more info on E-40 that we took from Wiki:
Earl Stevens (born November 15, 1967), better known by his stage name E-40, is an American rapper from Vallejo, California. He is also part of the Bay Area rap group The Click and the founder of Sick Wid It Records. His solo debut album, Federal, was released in 1992, and The Click’s debut album “Down & Dirty” came out in 1992. E-40′s 1995 solo album In a Major Way opened him up to a wider audience. He has released over ten albums, including those with his group The Click; he has also appeared on numerous movie soundtracks and has guest appearances on a host of other rap albums. Starting in 1998, he worked with rappers outside the Bay Area and rose to even higher mainstream popularity in 2006 with his single “Tell Me When to Go” which was produced by Lil Jon. Stevens was born on November 15, 1967 in Vallejo, California.
After a talent show at Grambling State University, E-40 and his cousin B-Legit decided to attempt a career in rap. They moved back to Vallejo and teamed up with D-Shot, E-40′s brother, to form the group MVP or Most Valuable Players. E-40′s gospel singing uncle (Saint Charles) helped them put out the record. E-40′s sister, Suga T, was then added to the group to form The Click.
Thus, six additional solo albums were to follow, beginning with In a Major Way in 1995 as well as remastered versions of E-40′s independent Sick Wid It recordings from previous years. In a Major Way was regionally well-received, with guest spots by such gangsta rappers as Tupac Shakur, Mac Mall, as well as his son Droop-E.
Although having a large following within the Bay Area and along the West Coast, E-40 did not have a large mainstream audience, so only two of his songs released under Jive Records, “1-Luv” and “Things’ll Never Change”, charted on the Billboard Hot 100. He had been working nearly exclusively with rappers from the Bay Area until 1997, when he released the double disc compilation Southwest Riders featuring exclusively rap acts from the Bay Area and the south. His collaboration with southern rappers continued in 1998, when he was given guest appearances on two albums by Southern rappers, including Lost by Eightball, and MP Da Last Don by Master P.
