Too Short rapped that he was “a true blue West Coast pioneer” back in 1995. That label fits just as well on E-40. The prolific rap legends share a spot in the all-time Best of the Bay debate and a poetic pronunciation of “be-yotch,” but their styles couldn’t be more different. E-40 sprays syllables like an assault rifle, while Short’s no-nonsense flow rolls pure pimp swagger. The pair teamed up for a set of 2012 albums (History: Mob Music and History: Function Music) and continue to get in where they fit in. Sprinkle me, beyotch!
