E-40 is living up to his Charlie Hustle nickname. One month after releasing the Connected & Respected album with his cousin B-Legit, the Bay Area Hip Hop legend has announced a new solo album titled The Gift Of Gab.

40 Water’s next LP is scheduled to drop on June 29. The project will be the 25th solo album of E-40’s career. His last solo effort was The D-Boy Diary, which was released as a two-parter in 2016.

No tracklist for the upcoming album has been revealed at this time. E-40 also hasn’t shared a lead single for the LP.
