Our Review

An all-time classic of West Coast rap and the pinnacle of E-40’s glorious mid-career run, The Hall of Game has lost none of its luster in the 14 years since it was released. The album brings together veterans (Too Short, Spice 1), peers (B-Legit, Celly Cel) and soon-to-be stars (Keak da Sneak). In another way, the album functions as a compendium of California hip-hop style. “Million Dollar Spot” is a laid- back portion of G-Funk, while “I Wanna Thank You” and “I Like What You Do to Me” nod to the vintage, electro-inflected sounds of early-‘80s funk. The dizzying “Ring It” even predicts the future creation of hyphy. Of course, the main attraction is 40’s own self-styled “mob music” and the outlandish lyrical content that goes with it. Bay Area hip-hop just doesn’t get more definitive than “Record Haters,” “Rapper’s Ball,” “Growing Up” and “Smebbin’,” but, the album’s best verse should be awarded to the poignant reflections of “The Story”: “I think it goes, ya live by the dirt, ya die by the shovel / You can repent and come with God or you can go with devil… Churches, wakes, nothing unusual / Seem like every other damn day I'm buyin’ a brand new suit for funerals.”

Biography

Born: November 15, 1967 in Vallejo, CA

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Synonymous with Bay Area rap, E-40 garnered a regional following, and eventually a national one, with his flamboyant raps, while his entrepreneurial spirit, embodied by his homegrown record label, Sick Wid' It Records, did much to cultivate a flourishing rap scene to the east of San Francisco Bay, in communities such as Oakland and his native Vallejo. Along with Too Short, Spice 1, and Ant Banks, E-40 was among the first Bay Area rappers to sign to a major label, penning a deal with Jive Records…
