Today (Nov. 17), “The Breakfast Club” shared a new interview with E-40, who spoke on his “Goon with the Spoon” book with Snoop Dogg, having a street named after him in Vallejo and a very brief conflict with the Sacramento Kings. He also broke down his longevity in the game and consistency on the charts, both of which will more than certainly continue thanks to a new album that dropped today.

Titled Rule of Thumb: Rule 1, the project consists of 23 songs with contributions from Larry June, LaRussell, Too Short, YoungBoy Never Broke Again and more. As he explained to Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy, the sequel to said LP will arrive in January 2024. That’s not all, either — two other projects, Songs For Every Emotion Part 1 and Part 2, will follow months later.

E-40 also spoke on a track titled “High-End,” a Rule of Thumb: Rule 1 standout that features Philthy Rich, Gucci Mane and B.G., the last of whom was recently freed from prison. “You know, I stayed rockin’ wit’ him on the Instagram and whatnot, and then through Birdman, that’s my guy,” he said in regard to the Hot Boys alumn. “When he came home, I hit him on the DM, I said, ‘Birdman, tell B.G. I love him, and tell him I said what’s up.’ He was like, ’40, he asked about you.’ He did time wit’ my brother-in-law, Mac Russ, too.”

He continued, “I been knowing B.G. since he was a young mustache. Him, Lil Wayne, all of ’em. They were on my album Charlie Hustle, we had a song called ‘Look At Me.’ We did it over at Bosco Conte’s house.” He also revealed that he was one of the first artists who collaborated with Cash Money Records, a label that was initially known for keeping much of their music in-house.
