E-40, known as the ambassador of bay area hyphy (and the 'yay' as he puts it), puts out a solid album with The Ball Street Journal. Although this album is not as good as My Ghetto Report Card, which was his previous album that went gold, the album still has some good tracks. Pain No More and Wake It Up are some of the best tracks on the album. This album will not sell as much as My Ghetto Report Card because it has had less exposure and Kanye & Ludacris' album will most likely overshadow it, but then again, sales don't make an album (as we've seen with Lil Wayne's album). The album has a good list of producers. Pete Rock & DJ Premier both make apperances.
Best Song: Pain No More (feat. Snoop Dogg & The Game) - A westcoast trio makin' a westcoast original song. This ones pretty good.
