Artwork For E40’s “The Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil” Part 4, 5, and 6

Artwork For E40’s “The Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil” Part 4, 5, and 6

According to XXL E40 is releasing three albums, “The Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil Parts 4, 5, and 6.  Today, he released the artwork for all three albums.  When asked why is he releasing three albums, the Bay Area legend says:

I’m a score and a nickel deep in the game! That’s 25 years with real studio albums on the shelf. If an artist can release two and three mixtapes a year for free, I can release two or three official studio albums a year for money. As an independent artist I do what I want, not what I can. I’m putting out three albums because I’ve got 3 decades of fans that I gotta satisfy. I’ve been through hella different eras of music and I survived successfully! It took William Shakespeare 20 years of experience to write Hamlet! I make Slaps and paint pictures with my raps and I’m in my prime with 25 years of experience. You ain’t gotta like me but you gotta respect me!
