E-40’s “Tell Me When to Go” Featured in Beats by Dre Spot Starring Draymond Green
The Bay Area is getting some love in the latest Beats by Dre commercial. Golden State Warriors player Draymond Green stars in Beats' new ad for the B [Ready] campaign with E-40's 2006 hit "Tell Me When to Go" featuring Keak Da Sneak as the soundtrack.
The Beats by Dre spot opens up with Draymond Green getting ready for his next game with a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. To begin his preparations, Green pulls up the hyphy anthem on his phone and presses play as the visuals go to black and white. E-40 pops up in the video alongside Green as the Warriors star makes his moves through the city before getting to the arena where the color returns to the screen.
The commercial features cameos by Draymond Green's Warriors teammates Shaun Livingston, Ian Clark and Brandon Rush as all of them are seen wearing shirts with "The Bay" across their chests. Former NBA players Gary Payton and Brian Shaw, who both grew up in Oakland, also make brief appearances along the way.
While this ad should give some new life to E-40's "Tell Me When to Go," Charlie Hustle has plenty of new music in the works too. Just a few months ago, the influential MC dropped a single called "Slappin" feauring Nef The Pharaoh and D.R.A.M. The Rick Rock produced track will appear on E-40's upcoming albums The D-Boy Diary 1 and 2, which don't have a release date at this time.
