5. 40 Glocc featuring E-40, Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, Xzibit, and Sevin, "Welcome to California (Remix)" (2011)

This Golden State posse cut wouldn't be the same with only the SoCal stars -- it needed just the right touch of the Yay.


4. E-40 featuring Too $hort, "Bitch" (2010)

This single from 40's Revenue Retrievin' was so loved by 50 Cent that he recorded a remix and helped spread $hort's favorite word even further around the country. The original has a bit more charm and local flavor.


3. Too $hort featuring Soopafly, Daz, and E-40, "You Might Get G'eed" (2007)

Here's one of the best statewide tunes, featuring a beautiful mix of Northern California macking and Southern California pimping. $hort steps up his flow here, and 40's got an impressive showing of his lower vocal register on this one.


2. E-40 featuring Too $hort & J-Banks, "Just Be You" (2012)

E-40 used to say that he'd "make like a pregnant lady and release an album every nine months," but he's bypassed that humble claim with Octomom-style productivity in recent years. This song and video from The Block Brochure collection, which dropped earlier this year, is a sleeper that deserves more attention, a real laid-back display of their natural confidence.


1. E-40 featuring Too $hort and K-Ci, "Rapper's Ball" (1996)

The platinum standard for old-school fans, this is the original collaboration where the two share secrets from The Hall of Game for the benefit of your financial health ("Don't buy an $85,000 car before you buy a house").

  • 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.'"
