Independent. Visionary. Timeless. These are just a few of the words that describe E-40 and the lane which he’s carved out for himself in the culture of hip-hop. In light of his 23rd and 24th album release, 40 has proved his staying power and longevity in rap history. From “Savage” to “Blessed By The Game” to “Bring Back the Sideshow” to “Tycoon,” the artist delivers 42 “slappers” to his loyal supporters. Though such an abundance of music in one offering can come off a bit redundant and leave the listener disinterested, The D-Boy Diary is a testament that as long as he’s breathing, E-40 will never be done.
Score: 8 out of 10
