E-40 is no stranger to clever puns, and the title of the Vallejo heavy's latest release, The Ball Street Journal, shows the rapper isn't slowing down the slang any time soon. The album,  featuring 40's signature rubber tongue alongside guests like Snoop Dogg, Bun B, Game, Akon and T-Pain, drops two years after the Ambassador of the Yay put this area on the map in a big way with My Ghetto Report Card. Check out the original (and remix) version of Ball Street's "Break Ya Ankles (feat. Shawty Lo)" here... and if you missed Tamara Palmer's Nov. 21 interview with E-40, make sure to catch up on that too. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
