UPDATE #2: E-40 and Too Short link for a pair of albums dropping the same day.
Aside from revealing the name of the project E-40 explained that it will consist of two different albums, one album will be geared towards their new school music while the other album will focus on old school music.
“First of all the album is called E-40 Too $hort: The History Channel. We’re doing two albums. It’s two albums we’re dropping on the same day,” E-40 revealed. “$hort was before me so we both seen all the genres, different eras of music. So we got fans that loved the old school music and we got fans that love the new school music. So it’s called E-40 Too Short: The History Channel. Function music which is for the newer era. So that’s a whole album full of nothing but function music. And then we got mob music and that’s just old school. The old school feel. We tryna make our fans feel like they used to on the mob music one.”
E-40 also spoke on being considered an underdog in music and learning to embrace the underdog title.
“I consider myself an underdog, but I don’t care about that. I think it’s better to be honest with you. I like underdogs,” said E-40. “When I see a boxing match I’m like ‘Man, he the underdog. I want him to win.’ You know what I’m saying? Maybe that’s why [I’ve lasted] so long in this industry. If I would’ve just blew up overnight, sold 10 million records I probably would have been out the game. But God made it and he designed it like this and I’m gonna roll with it. This is my path.”
It’s unclear when exactly E-40 Too $hort: The History Channel will be released.
UPDATE: E-40 and Too Short have announced the release of their upcoming joint album The History Channel, dropping November 6th. According to HHNM, the pair will unleash the project in two parts: The History Channel: Function Music, which will be “music for the new era,” and The History Channel: Mob Music, which will have an “old school feel.”
