Here is the third best video E-40 has made this summer. It’s for a song from the triple album The Block Brochure: Welcome to the Soil 1, 2 & 3. It is very good. E-40 has been on a phenomenal run the past couple years—making music as good as any he’s made during his two-decade-long career. He’s also a singularly charming and lovable representative of California’s Bay Area. As you can tell from the first and second best videos he has made this summer.
“I thought you’d never ask, Mr. E-40!”
E-40 and Ursula proved extremely effective at getting out the vote for this year’s All-Star Game, which will be played next week in Kansas City. Inspired Giants fans placed three of their team’s players in the National League’s starting nine: catcher Buster Posey, outfielder Melky Cabrera and third baseman Pablo “Kung-Fu Panda” Sandoval—whose late surge in the polls allowed him to overtake the New York Mets’ far-more-deserving David Wright. Apparently, Wright’s 59 RBIs and 1.014 OPS, were no match for E-40’s exhortations. Rapping over the beat from Luniz’ 1995 classic “I Got 5 On It,” 40 argued that “tough plays at third make like a gold glove,” so, “Come on, Giants fans, show the Panda some love.”
It’s a compelling argument, statistics be damned.
