The Ambassador of the Bay aka 40 Water aka E-40 has today unveiled new artwork covers for his 3 upcoming albums.
The trio entitled “The Block Brochure Welcome To The Soil Parts 4, 5 and 6″ will be the follow up to the first trilogy released last year.
This decade alone E-40 has given fans 9 releases with his Revenue Retrievin’ series (4), the Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil series (3) and his Too Short collaboration “History” (2) – an incredible work rate for an artist 25 years into his career!
When asked why and how he decided to release three albums at the same time he had this to say…
“I’m a score and a nickel deep in the game! That’s 25 years with real studio albums on the shelf. If an artist can release two and three mixtapes a year for free, I can release two or three official studio albums a year for money. As an independent artist I do what I want, not what I can. I’m putting out three albums because I’ve got 3 decades of fans that I gotta satisfy. I’ve been through hella different eras of music and I survived successfully! It took William Shakespeare 20 years of experience to write Hamlet! I make Slaps and paint pictures with my raps and I’m in my prime with 25 years of experience. You ain’t gotta like me but you gotta respect me!”
