It seems as though in the hip hop scene, and the music scene in general, that artists can rise and fall
in a matter of months and weeks, making it a big deal when an artist such as E-40 managed to continually exceed expectations
and deliver the biggest and best hip hop and rap for well over a decade. Making his name in the world of music with his brilliant
west coast rap and entrepreneurial spirit, E-40 is easily one of the most recognized and celebrated rap artists of our time,
and he continues to bring the kind of hip hop that people will be listening to years from now. He is not only celebrated for
his rhymes and rap ability, but his live shows are something of a legend as they are almost too incredible to believe. His
live shows need to be seen to be believed, and you can see him do his thing live on the stage at one of two events happening
in the near future. With one show at the end of December 2013 in Los Angeles and one in early January 2014 in Santa Cruz,
E-40 will blow your mind and have you coming back for more with his live show. So make sure that you'll be at one of these
upcoming shows by getting your tickets from Stubhub while you still can, as these are likely to sell out fast. Tickets are

About The Artist
Born in 1967
Vallejo, California, Earl Stevens (better known by his stage name E-40) is one of the most talented and well respected rappers
in the game today, and with his extensive discography touting a plethora of hits there is no question why. He started out
as a member of rap group "The Click" but slowly began to work on his solo work, starting with 1993's "Federal" and 1995's
"In a Major Way". "In A Major Way" was a hit with the Bay area and was the first step towards making it to the top. He continued
on releasing albums such as "The Hall of Game", "The element of Surprise", "Loyalty & Betrayal", and more, while throughout
much of the 2000's he was hosting a weekly radio show in San Francisco. While starting out as more of a local and regional
star, he has risen to prominence both through his stellar albums and by working with more mainstream artists.
E-40 has been a major force in the world of rap practically from the moment that he entered it, although
he wouldn't be nationally recognized until a few years later. His initial entries off "Federal", "In A Major Way", and "Southwest
Riders" were all solid and helped raise awareness of the Bay area rap master, but it wouldn't be until signing with a major
label and began releasing particular singles in the mid 2000's that he really began to take off as a majorly recognized rapper.
His rise to national prominence seems to have started with the single "Tell Me When To Go", which gained him a spot on shows
on MTV and BET. Another single he released, "U and Dat" featuring T-Pain and Kandi Girl, was also a big hit, helped by the
fact that it was produced by Lil Jon, a huge name at that point in time. After these singles began to fuel the fire of mainstream
awareness of E-40, he continued to hit it big with the album "My Ghetto Report Card" which debuted at #1 on the Top R&B/Hip
Hop Albums chart and making it into the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 200.
While E-40's entrepreneurial
spirit has shown through with his record label that he would release his albums on early on in his career, he has actually
invested time, effort, and money into other projects as well. Along with investing money in businesses like Microsoft and
opening up a Fatburger restaurant in California, E-40 has written a book, is the spokesperson for Landy Cognac, and opened
up a nightclub in downtown San Jose. Most recently he has started up his own brand of energy drinks called "40 Water" and
has opened up a Wingstop in the Bay area.
You've been hearing his hit singles and albums
for years and always wanted the chance to see him live, and now you have that chance as he takes his live show to the west
coast once again for shows that you won't want to miss. While his music is amazing no matter how you listen to it, if you've
never seen E-40 perform live then you really don't know what you're missing out on! These shows are a rare opportunity, so
