The Bay Area rap ambassador's 2007 foray into energy drinks was brief and unremarkable -- 40 Water looked like Gatorade and tasted, according to many, like melted plastic and Otter Pops -- but E-40 made up for it the very same year by franchising a Wingstop location in Benicia, then signing a deal with Icepiks, a company that made opulent, diamond-encrusted toothpick sleeves.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
