Welcome to another Thursday and that means we’re closer to the weekend. My playlist this week included Tical, the Rhythm & Gangsta joint from Snoop and Slim Thug’s Already Platinum. Karma 3 from Dave East, Alicia Keys Girl on Fire and a Mariah Carey mixtape was also included. With the epic Verzuz taking place tonight, we’re going with two west coast legends. Too Short and E40 will be the final Verzuz battle of 2020. Unfortunately, Ashanti tested positive for Covid-19 and her battle with Keyshia Cole was cancelled. They will do their Verzuz on January 9th, but for us old heads, we’re ready for Short Dog and 40 Water. The last Verzuz featured Gucci Mane and Jeezy, which broke records because of their past beef. The Verzuz between E40 and Too Short won’t break the records, but will give us a stroll down memory lane.
For the featured Throwback Thursday joint, we’re going back to 1996. E40 released his third album, Hall of Game and his big single featured Too Short. Rapper’s Ball was the track and the video was really dope. 2Pac, Ice-T, Mack 10 and many other appeared in the video. K0Ci from Jodeci sung the hook as Too Short was the featured artist and it was an instant classic. On Friday, Too Short and E40 will drop a bundle album.
Too Short’s 22nd album is called Ain’t Gone Do It. E40’s new joint is titled Terms and Conditions, which is his 27th. Hall of Game is one of my favorite E40 albums. Record Haters, Million Dollar Spot, Things’ll Never Change and Rapper’s Ball are my top 5 tracks. Below is the track listing and stream links for the Hall of Game album.
