Format: MP3 Music
"Mob" music is the style of music E-40 rapped to on his Federal debut. The beats on that album were produced by Studio Tone and they, like most on those early albums, pound. But somewhere along the way; a decade after Federal, to be exact; E-40 lost his way. Now, another decade later, what he tries to pass as classic "mob" music is a collection of mostly watered-down starter beats. They do "pound" in the literal sense, meaning they're produced with enough bass to give your speakers a workout, but not in the aesthetic sense the slang term implies.

Studio Tone is limited to just one track. That song, entitled Ask About Me, is perhaps the closest this set comes to classic "mob". Most of the others, on both albums, sound like new-age post-Hyphy "function" music to me. That makes the double-album concept a bit of a fraud. Long-time E-40 and Too Short fans anticipating an epic return to form shouldn't get their hopes up, in other words, because they'll be disappointed in a major way. In fact, the individual solo albums E-40 and Too Short released earlier this year are considerably better than this set.

Aside from the beats, the concept is also thrown off by the fact that both rappers aren't given equal time. This seems much more like an E-40 release featuring Too Short than a true one-and-one collaboration. Too Short is featured on only the West Coast Shit chorus. E-40 is featured on several. I think E-40 has more verses too. He's the better rapper, but that's a fatal flaw; one that would be hard to overcome even if most of the beats weren't amateurish and most of the hooks lackluster. Some; like Toasted, Say I and One Foot; are just plain annoying.

If you're a long time fan of E-40 and Too $hort you'll enjoy this combo. The beats are dope and they come with their usual clever word play. It's hard to disappoint with two classic Bay area kings giving you 30+ tracks. There are a few I skip but for the most part it was a pretty solid double release.

I grew up on E40 and Too Short. Well my teen and adult years. The beats are classic and they deliver good game for the game deficient. Double Cd a great treat. This Sh.. Bangs as they say in a song. Money well spent
