39. E-40, In a Major Way (1995)
Label: Jive, Sik Wid It
After making a name for himself as a member of The Click and with his independent debut, E-40 landed a major label deal with Jive Records, inspiring the triumphant title to this album. With stronger production and an ever-improving delivery, it featured the popular "1 Luv," "Sprinkle Me," and "Dusted 'N' Disgusted" with 2Pac, Spice 1, and Mac Mall. In a Major Way helped spread 40 Water's catchy slang beyond the Bay, and set himself up for the success of Tha Hall of Game.
