E-40: “Can’t Any Rapper Teach Me Anything”
E-40, who released his debut album, Federal, in 1993, recently said he feels age doesn’t have an impact on rap.
“I’m 46,” 40 said in an interview with xxlmag.com. “I tell them age ain’t nothing but mind over matter. You don’t mind, it don’t matter. I rap circles around these fools and spit some real knowledge and some game behind it. It ain’t just got to be punch lines and metaphors. I really paint pictures with my rhymes where you can visualize it. I know too much.
Can’t any rapper teach me anything. All they can teach me is about the latest fashion, probably. I was the first rapper talking about choppers, triple beam scales, drought season. I got the foundation down for the streets.”
