E-40 has dropped off a new single and video titled “Front Row 40.”
The video arrived ahead of E-40’s expected appearance at Game 3 of the Golden State Warriors vs. Sacramento Kings playoff game. The clip finds the Bay Area rapper boasting about his front-row presence at Golden State Warriors games as he takes over Chase Stadium, and compares himself to sports superfans like Spike Lee. The braggadocious visual also intersperses montage clips of E-40 relaxing with other rap superstars including, JAY-Z, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Too Short, and 2 Chainz.
The video will appear on E-40’s upcoming album and comes after the rapper dropped off his single “Bands” in March.
The new track also comes after E-40 was ejected from Game 1 of the NBA playoffs, with a source telling Complex that “Front Row 40,” “was recorded months ago and 40 always planned to drop it during the Warriors’ postseason.”
In a joint statement released after the incident, the Kings organization and 40 called what went down a misunderstanding.
“After a series of thoughtful and transparent conversations, both parties agree that there was a miscommunication regarding the circumstances that occurred during the Kings vs. Warriors game on Saturday night,” the statement said. “Contrary to speculation, Mr. Earl “E-40” Stevens did not stand excessively from his ticketed courtside seat; the outcome resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding between both parties.”
