E-40 Releasing Two Albums On The Same Day

Posted: Wednesday – February 10, 2010

One of the Bay area’s biggest names in Hip-Hop is set to return to music with the release of two albums on the same day.

E-40 is announcing plans to release his two new projects, Revenue Retrievin’ The Day Shift and Revenue Retrievin’ The Night Shift March 30.

Featured on the albums are fellow West Coast representatives Snoop Dogg and Too Short as well as Gucci Mane, Mistah Fab, Bobby Valentino, Jazze Pha, YV and J. Valentine with production from B-Legit, Messy Marv and Clyde Carson.

Speaking on his two latest installments, E-40 says he’s taking it back to the basics.

“I’m excited about this album; it’s been a year since I dropped “The Ball Street Journal.” It marks an important independent business venture for me. This way, I am able to go back to the basics and run my own campaign.”

As the clock ticks closer to March 30, EMI Records will utilize a high-level security team to protect both projects after last year’s leak of nine tracks from 40′s “The Ball Street Journal.”

In the meantime the ambassador of the Bay will kick his promotional efforts into high gear, debuting tracks online via UStream and YouTube so that fans can hear a preview of what’s to come.

Mack 10 Secures Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Jim Jones for New Album

Posted: Monday – July 6, 2009

Armed with a renewed focus and an all-star list of collaborator, West Coast rap star/actor Mack 10 plans to wrap up the summer in grand fashion with his forthcoming album Soft White.

The release is the follow-up to the Inglewood, Ca. native’s previous offering, 2005’s Hustla’s Handbook, which included the Nate Dogg-assisted single “Like That.”

For Soft White, Mack 10 admitted to having “fun” while working on the project as he explained the meaning behind the album’s name.

“I went with that title because this album right here is just raw and uncut, it’s just me,” Mack 10 stated. “We had fun on this one and I had to bring them all out, I’ve been smiling all year.”

Among those on hand to craft Soft White are music producer Jazze Pha and R&B crooners Anthony Hamilton, J. Holiday and Akon.

Rappers Jim Jones, Birdman and Glasses Malone have also been recruited for the album as well as Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, who both appear on Soft White’s first single, “So Sharp.”

The release of the album is the latest chapter in the music career of Mack10, who has sold nearly 3 million albums.

The rap veteran first emerged on the scene in 1995 with his self-titled debut album, which charted at number 2 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

The following year, Mack 10 aligned with fellow West Coast rap artists Ice Cube and WC to form Westside Connection.

The trio released their critically acclaimed platinum debut, Bow Down, in 1996.

Following Bow Down’s release, Mack 10 remained a fixture on the rap scene with a string of albums like Based on a True Story, The Recipe, The Paper Route and his 2003 Cash Money Records release Ghetto, Gutter & Gangster.

Mack 10’s Soft White is slated to hit stores on August 25. A video for “So Sharp” will be released in the coming weeks.
