E-40 ft. Akon - Wake It Up

The Ball Street Journal

This October, Bay Area icon E-40 will release his tenth solo album, The Ball Street Journal.  While building up a rather extensive catalog over the past sixteen years, 40 has become well-known for his lyrically-delectable party jams, which cater towards his hyphy-loving West Coast fanbase.  On the first official single from his forthcoming LP, however, the rapper born Earl Stevens has decided to change it up.  On Wake It Up, the emcee is joined by Akon (who provides both a hook and production assistance) for a radio-request-worthy ladies jam.  Unlike the previously-released Turf Drop, which only appealed to a localized Bay Area audience, Wake It Up plays to the satisfaction of hip hop listeners from coast to coast.
