The development of hip-hop during the 1990s is partiallyindebted to the styles that were cultivated on the West Coast,more specifically in the state of California. When one thinksof the California hip-hop scene invariably the G-funk ofTupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, and Los Angeles comes tomind, but to ignore the equally impressive San Francisco bayarea scene is a travesty. It was in this environment whereEarl Stevens, better known by his stage name E-40, came upin and developed his following.Alongside regional staples such as Too Short, Spice 1, andAnt Banks, E-40 was among the first West Coast rappers tosign with a major label, and scored a Billboard-charting hitrecord with 1995's In A Major Way. His flamboyant attitude,mixed with a driven, DIY spirit, would lead to furtherBillboard-charters, as well as collaborations with top-tiernames of hip-hop, from California peers like Tupac Shakur,Too Short, and Keak Da Sneak, to underground legends likeTech N9ne, Bun B, and Danny Brown, to modern MCs like 2Chainz, YG, and Juicy J, to even the company of comedy trioThe Lonely Island.While E-40's break into the mainstream came with 1995's InA Major Way, he had recorded on numerous EPs andfeatures, as well as a studio album through his own self-runlabel Sick Wid It Records. That studio album, 1993's Federal,would also serve as his solo debut, and paint a picture ofthings to come for the bay area rapper. With it's stark andaggressive sound, over top of beats that sampled classicfunk and soul staples like Isaac Hayes, Sly & The FamilyStone, and The Ohio Players, Federal put E-40s skills as anMC on full display, as well as promising things in thefollowing years. Not to mention solid guest spotsfrom his fellow Californians B-Legit, Kaveo, Little Bruce,and various others.
