This is the most important album for Northern California in the past 10 years. We had to get 40 at least a Gold plaque to hang on his wall, otherwise officially, The Bay Aint Back! E-40 has always been the voice of the Bay Area, let's face it, he yells the loudest (He's always been hot enough to keep a major deal). This album My Ghetto Report Card is as good as any he's ever dropped. It has more songs than In A Major Way, his best selling album ever, so it could be a better album. E-40 never comes stale, he's as fresh as they get, even after 15 years in the industry, an industry he helped make-The Independent Rap Industry. The single 'Tell Me When To Go' became the biggest single for the Bay Area since 'I Got 5 On It'. Keak Da Sneak solidified 40 Water as a Hyphy representer with help of Lil Jon on this monumental single. His next track 'Muscle Cars' was the icing on the cake, it also featured Keak, and Turf Talk. E-40 gets with The Federation, other Hyphy Factors from the Bay Area on 'Go Hard Or Go Home'. 40 Water touches all angles with this album, 'Gouda' with Stressmatic and B-Legit is hard. 'They Might Be Taping', is classic E-40. He can kill any beat, E-40 is one of the industry's best lyricist-top 5 for sure, he's the #1 Game Spitter of all time (Quote me on it). Other hits include 'Block Boi', radio favorite's 'White Gurl' with Bun B., Pimp C-U.G.K., and Juelz Santana, and U And Dat featuring T-Pain. The radio seems to play a handful of hits including 'Yee' featuring Too $hort, and 'She Says She Loves Me' with 8 Ball and Bun B. The last track 'Happy To Be Here' is my favorite, it's some real rhymes from the heart, it shows he appreciates the game, 40 always puts one like this on each album, that's what makes him the Ambassador of The Bay! A lot of haters have popped up and re-emerged during this past 6 months, but Earl Stevens has managed to quiet them all...with the succe$$ of this album. CONGRATULATIONS E-40!!!
