With 27 albums to his credit and millions of records sold, rapper E-40 brings his streetwise lyrical storytelling tinged with humor to Humboldt for an all-ages show with Bay Area rapper Kool John and Clyde Carson as the support act. A limited amount of meet and greet tickets are available online for a rare opportunity to connect in person with the artists.
Releasing numerous collaborations and co-signs, E-40 maintains high production standards in the recording studio and the result finds him performing over some of Hiphop’s most adventurous beats in the live setting. Hit songs from E-40 like “Rappers Ball” featuring rapper Bo-Rock reached the top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. E-40’s 2006 single “Tell Me When To Go” featuring Keak the Sneak was produced by multi-platinum selling Lil Jon and was one of the first singles to kick off the Bay Area-based “hyphy” music movement on a global level, the song became a RIAA Gold certified single for sales.
Initially an underground artist as a founding member of rap group The Click, he released his first solo album IN A MAJOR WAY in 1995 and since that time E-40 has steadily maintained mainstream popularity performing extensively throughout the U.S. Originally from Vallejo, California, in 2016 the rapper released the two part album The D-BOY DIARY: BOOK 1 & THE D-BOY DIARY: BOOK 2.
