E40 Announces Two New Albums; EMI Secures Release Against Leaks
Vallejo, California rapper E-40 has announced he will release his 13th and 14th album on the same date this March.
The veteran rapper has assembled an all-star lineup for the two releases, titled Revenue Retrievin’ The Day Shift and Revenue Retrievin’ The Night Shift.
Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, Mistah Fab, Gucci Mane, B-Legit, Messy Marv, Clyde Carson, TurfTalk, E-40’s son Droop-E and a host of others are featured on the 38 brand new tracks from E-40.
Producers on both discs include Jazze Pha, YV, J. Valentine and Bobby V.
The album is a family affair as well, as E-40 also inked a deal with Heavy On The Grind Entertainment, the record label owned by his son Droop-E, which is distributed by EMI.
"I'm excited about this album, it’s been a year since I dropped The Ball Street Journal,” E40 said in a statement. “It marks an important independent business venture for me. This way, I am able to go back to the basics and run my own campaign."
Due to the fact that nine songs from E40’s last commercial release The Ball Street Journal leaked prior to that album’s release, EMI is taking serious measures to ensure the security of the rapper’s latest effort.
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide commercial services for E-40. He has had a massive impact on Hip-Hop in the Bay area and beyond and we're extremely excited to partner with him on the next phase of his career," added Dominic Pandiscia, Senior Vice President & General Manager - EMI Label Services.
Revenue Retrievin’ The Day Shift and Revenue Retrievin’ The Night Shift are due in stores on March 30th.
