E-40 stopped by the studio to talk about all the words he’s invented, rapped, and made a part of everyday language. He also gave Nick Cannon some tips on how to take a lady on a date – he’s been happily married since 1991, so we think we’ll take his advice.
The Bay-Area legend goes through all of his albums that he’s released during the Close Conversation with #NickCannonMornings just to show how much time and influence he has in the music game. Not only does 40 Water have a plethora of both underground and certified hits, the rapper’s longevity has proven to change the sound of music coming out of the Bay but also the culture of hip-hop language. Staying relevant is not an issue for the rapper who’s been dropping anthems, culminating over 27 studio albums to date. Speaking to Cannon about being prominent in today’s music 40 days, “I just show love to those who show love to me! I’m net-worker. I’m a people person, You know, I’m solid, not salad. I try to treat people like I want to be treated; you know what I’m saying. I support those who support me and I recognize talent. He continues, “Me being solid all my life, it don’t make it hard for cats to work with me. I stay consistent. I’m not hella ancient, or what not. I’m woke, I’m game’d up! I’m more of the future than the past.”
The West coast icon goes on to discuss not only having put on for the urban community for his music releases but he’s also had his hand in numerous business ventures including his popular alcohol and wine collections. 40 also talks his forthcoming project, takes a stab at the Firing Squad round, and much more.
