There’s a lot of bosses in The Bay but there’s only one King. Highly respected and undisputed NorCal music mogul Earl Stevens Aka E-40 just keeps bagging wins. Just released “Chase the money” featuring Quavo, Roddy Ricch, A$AP Ferg and ScHoolboy Q. The song is straight ear candy and a prelude to 40 Water’s upcoming solo album drop in July.
Before even hearing this new release I read the credits and my first thought was “Oh shit, that’s a heavy lineup”. Typically when I see a track with 5 artists on it, that wouldn’t of been my first thought. I was extremely hyped to hear this song blend together seamlessly. Each artist absolutely blazing up this insane production with their own vibrant and flavorful styles. Chase The Money is definitely a must have slap(song) in the whip (car) for these hot summer nights.
The video is something like a high quality mini movie from verse to verse, scene to scene all you get is drip. Don’t take my word for it though, check it out for yourself. I’m NorCal bias because it’s my home state, it’s extremely huge for one of ours to break out worldwide and even harder to stay relevant. E-40 has done both year after year for decades. I have the feeling that he is going to rock the entire planet with his 29th album release Practice Makes Paper due to drop in July.
I grew up listening to E-40 drip lingo since The Click and Federal were on cassette. The one thing that you can bet on is that his next hit or endeavor is always better than his last, consistently. You can bet your ass people are lined up in pre-orders to purchase the album right now.
Additionally laiden in platinum selling hits, E-40 has for some time now been putting focus into his other endeavors such as Earl Stevens Selection wine as well. Absolutely not forgetting to mention he also put out a malt liquor and multiple spirits like Tycoon Vodka, E. Cuarenta Tequila and Slurricane that are usually available at BevMo if your local store is sold out.
The truth is that if I had to put money on it I would say the best is yet to come from E-40, don’t underestimate the OGs. After watching the Chase The Money Video I can confidently say that Practice Makes Paper is sure to be THE must have album of the summer .
