In The Mayor episode “Monuments Man,” Mayor Courtney (Brandon Michael Hall) discovers that Tito’s Ballroom, the historic music venue in Fort Grey, is closing down because they can’t afford to pay the rent. In an attempt to save the club, Courtney sponsors a music festival and convinces Bay Area rapper E-40 to perform.
Rapper E-40 (born Earl Stevens) really is from the Bay Area in California. The 50-year-old rapper is known from his days in the rap group The Click and for founding Sick Wid It Records. His biggest hit was the 2006 single “Tell Me When to Go” which was produced by Lil Jon. E-40 has released 24 studio albums. His latest is The D-Boy Diary: Book 2 (2016 — see link above). E-40 is also an entrepreneur. See his cannabis oil and wine collection below. The Mayor airs Tuesdays at 9:30pm on ABC, right after black-ish.
