Product Description

"It's All Good," "Fo'Shezzy, Fo'Shizzle" and "What's Up Pimpin" are all phrases originated by E-40. He also named Hyphy, the San Francisco Bay Area movement Rolling Stone has anointed as the "hot new scene." With each of his most recent seven albums having reached the R&B/Hip-Hop Top 10, the acclaimed platinum-selling rapmaster now teams with executive producer Lil Jon for My Ghetto Report Card-and Hyphy goes to the head of the class. 2006.

Riding on the popularity of the song/video "Tell Me When To Go," E-40's latest album also doubles as an introduction of the Bay Area's burgeoning "Hyphy" movement to a national audience. His constantly evolving slangcabulary and taffy-like vocal style are acquired tastes--especially outside the Yay--but this new album makes smart choices and is one of 40's most crossover-friendly albums to date. His signature "mob sound" has been stripped down to a minimalist bed of thick bass kicks and catchy hand claps by everyone from Rick Rock ("Yay Area") to Droop-E ("Sick Wit It II"), even Lil' Jon ("Tell Me When To Go"). The album can feel a little repetitive at times, but it's also a sound that plays well in clubs, cars, and earbuds. 40 also opens his door to a host of guests, including local talent like Keak Da Sneak ("Muscle Cars") and The Federation ("Go Hard or Go Home"), but he wisely collaborates with others like NY's Juelz Santana and Houston's UGK ("White Gurl") as well as R&B crooner T-Pain ("U And Dat"). Will this album have the rest of the nation ghostriding the whip? Give it three months and we'll see. --Oliver Wang

Sell Out, Weak, Sorry, should never be said when talking about this album, dope as can be, sad is the fact that most these CATS dont get this album, one person wrote "REMEMBER when u couldnt understand E-40" i was like WOW this fool wasnt even listenin 2 him just St8 Stupid, E40 has made a statement this album is quickly beeing played as much as the chronic 2001, E-40 only did one thing, and thats smarten up, he opened the market up, IF U AINT FEELING OR LIVING THE LIFESTYLE then u arent gonna like it or buy it and knock it, Tell Me When To Go is knokin, Muscle Cars, Gouda, are Str8 2 the point, White Gurl if u didnt know its about keys, yay, snow paint, classic, a way better version of [A Baltimore Love Thing]U And Dat, is As close of a remix 2 in love with a stripper except better, Im Da Man is a STR8 Classic Mike Jones Kills it. Yee is classic, E-40 & Too $hort Droped It Heavy, Gimmie Head is Hella Toked and Tweeked, love that track, Happy To Be Here is another Good Song even though theyre all good. Best album Of 2006 so far, and this has been dope 4 months but i just wrote a review now cuz after hearing The Big Bang, its CLEAR My Ghetto Report Card is What every rapper out there have 2 compete with.

I'm not gonna use this review to vent about how bad hip-hop and rap is these days, but I am going to use it to expose sell outs and cross-overs. Back in the day, everybody in the westcoast was bangin E-40 in their car. Dusted N' Disgusted was one of my most favorite songs. E-40 was never a hot selling artist though. He never really had a number 1, chart topping hit. He wasn't recognized throught the hip-hop world as a best-selling artist. But come 2006. He has finally figured out what albums sale and what albums stay. The south is vibrating with all of the hype, and instead of staying true and staying westcoast, he decides to sell out and get Lil' Jon and others. This could possibly be either his worst move ever of possibly his best. Whatever the case, "My Ghetto Report Card" is neither a triumph or a disapointment. It mostly contains sparse beats, usually using just a heavy drum beat, and his usual fast lyicism. I personally was not impressed. You'd figure that someone with his talent he could put the Bay Area on the map without a damn Lil' Jon guest spot. If I was from the Bay, I would be not only disrespected, but embarassed. Just the fact that he goes South, but still tries to "rep" for the Bay, really shows his character. You'd have a better buy downloading this off the internet. It goes pretty much like this: if youv'e heard E-40 previously, you'll be disapointed. If you haven't: you'll cop this album right away. Whatever it is, stay true and don't try to follow trends. Real hip-hop will be coming back soon. Whether E-40 will come along for the ride it completley up to him.

This album is quality, period. E-40 brings it harder than any other. Passionate about his craft, 40 delivers, and disappoints nobody. New fans will see he's not a one-hitter, and old fans will know that mainstream success hasn't watered down the ambassador's sound. "Tell Me When to Go" is the perfect blend of home town homage and loyalty with crossover appeal. 40 has always rewarded his listeners with amazing wordplay and outstanding lyrics. Loyalists (he's not lying when he says he has a cult following) appreciate and understand his stop, start, balk, skeet and go delivery. This album successfully rewards his long-term fans with the first half, and pulls in a new audience with the latter half ('U and Dat' on down to 'She Say She Love Me'). The production unit of Lil' John, Ric Roc, Droop E, and Bosko have ensured that this CD will stay in heavy rotation on your player. Each beatmaker has his own distinct sound, and will entertain you until you can catch up to E-40's prolific flow (that's when you'll peep game, and recognize the greatest rapper alive). Most notable tracks, 'Tell Me When to Go' 'Yay Area' 'Go Hard or Go Home' 'Do Ya Head' 'Yee!' and 'She Say She Love Me'. After you buy this album, go get 'In a Major Way' and 'Grit and Grind' Trust this, you'll be glad you did.

I was put on to E-40 when I was like eleven growing up in the suburbs of Maryland by my brother. . ."Sprinkle Me" from In A Major Way was my first encounter with 40 Water. Ever since then I have been a fan. "Yay Area" is the Anthem song of the album reppin hard for the Bay. "Tell Me When to Go Feat. Keak Da Sneak" is definitely the latest club, party or whatever anthem that has been killing the airwaves with the ultimate comeback of the Yay area, though it never left. "Muscle Cars Feat. Keak Da Sneak & Turf Talk" and "Go Hard or Go Home" are two hot tracks made for the system in your whip and will definitely hit hard. "Goulda" is a track that will educate you on some of the slanguage used by 40 and is another heavy hitter. I'm loving the entire album so it's hard to pick a favorite. This album brings all of the elements we look for in a quality project from an artist. I can play the album through in its entirety and never skip a beat or track. E-40 doesn't do mainstream, he "knocks underground" and it's about time the public is given something from the Bay that's not "watered down." To old fans and new ones alike, start your CD collection of 2006 off the right way and cop My Ghetto Report Card, make your parents proud!
