Hot! E-40 Announces ‘The Gift of Gab’ Dropping Tomorrow


The 25th solo LP from the Bay Area native.

Bay Area legend E-40 has woven himself into hip-hop’s legendary fabric by thriving in rap’s margins: he adheres to his own path, following his own compass. Known for manipulating words through his eccentric delivery to fit his unorthodox rhyme schemes, E-40 has developed an unusual, albeit highly entertaining, relationship with the english language and how it relates to rap. He has a gift, if you will–a gift for gab. Stamping an official seal on this relationship, E-40 will be releasing his next project, The Gift of Gab, tomorrow, Friday, August 24th.

His 25th solo LP, The Gift of Gab is further proof of E-40’s starpower, as it’s a testament to his longevity. Marketed as the inaugural release in his Definition Series, to be followed by Rule of Thumb and Practice Makes Paper, The Gift of Gab will features fellow Cali natives, Vince Staples and G Perico, in addition to some of today’s hottest talents.
