E-40 will be releasing a bi-monthly EP series titled The Curb Commentator.
The veteran Bay Area rapper and business mogul made the announcement on social media along with the cover art for the first EP, Channel 1.
In the photo, Forty Water is suited up while sporting a beanie and his diamond-studded ‘Forty Water’ chain as he sits behind a news desk as an anchor for a sports television network. A bottle of E.Cuarenta – E-40’s tequila brand – sits to his left.
While no tracklist or features have been announced, Bay Area producer DJ Fresh commented on his involvement, which was confirmed by E-40’s response.
“Glad to be apart of this 1,” Fresh wrote, followed by the piano key emoji. E-40 responded with the “100” and top hat emojis.
E-40 was recently involved in a short-lived beef with fellow Bay Area Hip Hop legend Richie Rich. After E-40 labeled Richie a snitch and words were exchanged on social media, the pair made peace over a meal.
Channel 1 is expected to arrive on April 17, Channel 2 on June 19, Channel 3 on August 14 and Channel 4 on October 16.
