Album of the Day
My Ghetto Report Card (U.S. Explicit Version)
Born Earl Stevens on this day in 1967, E-40 is among the most prolific and inventive artists to emerge from the San Francisco Bay hip-hop scene in the 1990s. Following a string of releases for Jive and his own Sick Wid It label, the rapper signed with Warner Bros. for 2006's MY GHETTO REPORT CARD. With Lil Jon and Rick Rock handling the lion's share of production, the collection is an ideal showcase for the “hyphy” sound championed by E-40, and these 20 bass-heavy, slang-happy tracks include the hit singles “Tell Me When To Go” and “U And Dat.” With guest appearances from the likes of Too $hort, T-Pain and Keak Da Sneak, MY GHETTO REPORT CARD is one of E-40's most accessible albums and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard chart; we'll give it another spin to wish the rapper a happy birthday.
