E-40 Talks Album Titles: “I Had Verbal Vomit, But That Might Have Went Over People’s Heads”

E-40 has received great feedback for the title of his forthcoming album, The Ball Street Journal, but it almost never was. The slang master initially toyed with a few other titles.

“I had the title Verbal Vomit at first,” 40 told XXLMag.com. “But I knew that might have went over a few people’s heads. So I just came up with Ball Street Journal. It flows off the tongue right and it’s just perfect for an E-40 title. I had one called Ear Candy. But I still might do Ear Candy in the future, cause I feel like my music is therapeutic and healing and it’s Ear Candy.”

In the end, Fonzarelli settled for Ball Street Journal. “We always be pitching our little lingo and slang around,” Fonzarelli explained. ”We just be coming up with titles and what not. One of my potnas, Raytona 500…He was like, ‘Yeah, man. Just over here reading the Baller Street Journal. He called it the Baller Street Journal.”

“I had just did My Ghetto Report Card, which was a couple of years ago,” 40 added. ”[I thought] Ball Street Journal would be a good follow-up.”

    Yeah E-40 get in they azz that’s my nigga. I used to be signed to Sick Wit It before Spider Loc beat the shit outta Yukmouth so we really couldn’t go to Oakland anymore! But I was the 1st one to throw a punch & land on his 5’4″ pint size ass! I remember when Me & E-40 was eating @ 1 of his Fatburgers in LA I saw Suge walking down the street, I dropped everything I was doing and picked him up and said, “Remember when I threw you in the red Pool!” he said, “OMG G-UNOT KILLA!” I swear I been making my extortion payments of 1 value meal @ Arby’s per week and $15.00!” I said nigga you dune fucced up!” He was crying and shit. What people don’t know was I really knocked Suge out not Greg the barber! I stole on him and Gred ran and said Oh Snap so err body say him standing over Suge and I stepped back!

    E-40 is from Vallejo, CA, not Oakland. Vallejo is about 20 mi. north of Oakland. Vallejo rarely ever gets mentioned, don’t cut their shine short by giving it up to a city he’s not from.

    You guys have to be kidding me. If you haven’t picked up on it yet, whoever’s G-Not Killa is just having some fun posting those things it’s someone making a joke and if your consistent with the website at all then by now it’s getting pretty damn funny. Not just his silly posts (keep ‘em coming, man) but the fact that people actually get all heated about them and try to call him out has become one of the most entertaining bits of this website. So relax and have a fucking sense of humor. Dude will probably blast me under this and say something about killing me and that I don’t know what I’m talking about etc. etc. and it’ll probably be for a good laugh when I check it in a few hours. Grow up and take it for what it is.

    • G-UNOT KILLA

      • nicky j

        HAHAHAHAHA!! See?? Point proven! Take notes internet gangsters; this dude is clowning all of you at the same time and half of you are still too idiotic to figure it out.

        Keep it up champ.

        • damn

          idk if your suckin his dick or hes suckin your dick but the shit is wack…it aint no laugh. alll shit he writes is a bunch of bs…you need to wake up and realize lil homie

        • nicky j

          No one is sucking anyone’s dick. You’re the exact type of person he’s making fun of. No shit what he writes is a bunch of bullshit. He does it for entertainment. Looking around the website it looks like a lot of people are getting a laugh from it, so maybe you should wake up and realize “little” homie. Now you’re next move is probably to insult me further and eventually threaten me with how tough you are and all that. Go for it. You’ll look like an even bigger jackass and G-Unot can probably use you for his next piece of satire.
          “Little” Homie…

    • JAY STONE

      Fool reminds me of jonathan.
      what happens to that nigga.

  • Chris_lasorda

    I don’t know what kind of shuck dude is pulling, but he is a comedian for sho. As far as 40water, he IS soooo necessary to the game.He pushes the Oakland mindset even though he is from the V. But if you can’t relate to the in depth perspective of 40. you are basically a real succa. Loyalty and Betrayal, Charlie Hustle, just plain old game. Still relevant. That is how I base what I listen to. And 40 is mandatory!

  • TCUK

    I only read news on here now to see what G-UNOT KILLA has to say about the shit, man XXL pay this dude to keep bloggin on your shit he making it hot! Dude has me laughing all day.

  • ee-city

    LOL I be waiting for G-Unot Killas comments, they funny, he need to get up on youtube or something with all that wild shit he be saying

    • nicky j

      co-sign. He should be like those “Unforgivable” videos or something.

      “I’m a Kelly Park, Spooktown, ECG-UNIT, Paybacc, Grape St, & Fronthood Crip! Nigga I can’t even been seen w/ all those crip sets because they don’t like ea/other. I got jumped into all those different sets 1 by 1 nigga.”

      If you can’t laugh at that something is wrong with you.
