Im probably biased here, Im from the Bay Area....I grew up listening to Too Short ,and E40. Freaky Tales, Federal, Im Tired of Being Stepped On, Dope Fiend beat. Yes ....that far back.So basically it was 5 stars in my mind before I opened the wrapper Hahaha. Seriously though, the production here is top notch. Lyrically? E40s on it, as is Too Short. Both these albums are ...well History. If you're a fan its a must buy anyway you look at it. Albums all Bay Area fans have been waiting on for a long time, and they dont disappoint. Thanks to Amazon for having these cds on my doorstep , on the day they came out.

...should be the title of both albums. 40 opens up just about every song on both albums with Short coming in with a very "Short-like" verse. Both albums are a good example of marketing and hustling, because only a true hustler would put out two albums with someone more for name recognition than actual flow recognition, that being Too Short.

This is not to speak ill of Short an anyway, I'm a huge fan of his first 7-8 albums - all Bay Area classics and innovators, without Short there may not be any 40. Too Short is/was one of the best in the West for a good decade but now his raps are pretty tired. Again, this isn't a bad thing, I don't get tired of his voice or flow but he simply sounds like himself and at his age and after all the albums that he has done, he simple brings nothing new to the table. The difference with Too Short, unlike other rappers, is that he can talk about the same thing and it's simply hilarious every time.

As for E-40, he's a beast. Like Short, he talks about the same things but unlike Short he manages to talk about it and spins it differently each time and adds new depth to his experiences growing up. E-40 is one of those guys who is all about the hustle, he'll never be mainstream in the "Billboard" sense but that's what makes his hustle better than guys that have been in the game half as long. The fact that 40 isn't a billionaire makes him great and still worth listening to. This album, like Function Music, is an ode to staying in the game and working hard and staying relevant to his cult-like following.

This album isn't his greatest work but it delivers and definitely worth buying or downloading legally (i.e. paying for it) - it's a must have for any 40 or Short fan that wants to have a complete collection. The only thing that would have made this "Mob Music" album better would have been to bring back Mike Mosley and Ant Banks for the production and more o.g. west coast/bay area artist. Aside from that, it's an album well done and slaps like king-kong and godzilla are beefin' in the trunk! Go out and get it!!!!

Nice to see the two get together and work on an album with a West Coast feel. E-40 has always been a B- to C+ rapper to me. His music was really good, but not great. On this Album E-40 still shows that he has his flow and after all the years that have past, he still sounds like that B- to C+ artist. As far as Too Short, he has always been my favorite rapper. Back in the 80's-90's Too Short was that A+ - A- artist. On this album he sounds like a D+ - D- artist. Short is starting to lose his flow. It might be time to hang the mic up for Short as his lyrics are starting to decline. If Too Short makes any more albums, he should have someone to write his rhymes. Overall this album is good, but not great...

Great music. Bay Area beats and features the usual guest artists from the area. Club hits and some not so hood'ish feeling tracks to keep the album interesting

Both CD's, from the song one to 34 SLAPS!! Excellent cameos & classic Bay Area beats, too bad it wasn't summer because this would be blaring from every car

Does E 40 ever not work?? The man is a true hustler and puts out consistent quality albums at an alarming rate. Tremendous work ethic, I have both albums with Too Short and it is bumping all around.
