E-40 is a very busy man. He is planning to release three albums, The Block Brochure Welcome To The Soil Parts 4, 5 and 6. Today, he released the artwork covers for his three upcoming albums. Why is he releasing three albums? The Bay Area native simply says:

I'm a score and a nickel deep in the game! That's 25 years with real studio albums on the shelf. If an artist can release two and three mixtapes a year for free, I can release two or three official studio albums a year for money. As an independent artist I do what I want, not what I can. I’m putting out three albums because I’ve got 3 decades of fans that I gotta satisfy. I've been through hella different eras of music and I survived successfully! It took William Shakespeare 20 years of experience to write Hamlet! I make Slaps and paint pictures with my raps and I'm in my prime with 25 years of experience. You ain't gotta like me but you gotta respect me!
