Bay Area rap innovator, business tycoon, and music industry veteran/success story E-40 (aka Earl Stevens) brings his flamboyant gift of gab to the Troubadour for a one-day only show. Check out the man who has collaborated with Lil Jon, The Click, and Mac Dre (just to name a few); whose slang gets lifted and used in the rhymes of Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg; and who is still cranking out sick lyrics over his hard beats. E-40's latest, the sixth installment of The Block Brochure was released last year—his seventeenth studio album.
