Suge Knight, Warren G, Game Party Together In Celebration Of E-40

E-40 is one of the figures that’s always been able to blend the West Coast. Even when California’s Rap community was filled with beef between Death Row, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and others, and Game was at it with Yukmouth and JT Tha Bigga Figga 40 Water and his Sick Wid It Records clique (or Click) have built olive branches in a Rap career that practically spans 25 years. He’s worked with almost everybody and never burned his name in the process.

With 40 Fonzerelli’s Welcome To The Soil volumes 4, 5 and 6 released less than a month ago, the Vallejo O.G. invited a ton of stars to his Los Angles release party. While athletes like Gary Payton and Donovan McNabb showed up, so did Suge Knight, Warren G, Game, as well as Trae Tha Truth, Mistah F.A.B., and others.


Some nice subtext/context here: Warren G was one of the first artists to get into it with Suge in the early ’90s, after a reported 1993 altercation shortly after Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle was recorded. As a result, Warren signed with Russell Simmons’ Def Jam Records, while the biggest hit of his career was also released on Death Row, where Nate Dogg was signed, care of the Above The Rim soundtrack. The two never broke bread again. Game, who was courted by Death Row in the early 2000s, comes from the same neighborhood of Compton as Knight. The two have had several run-ins, and Game recorded a song five years ago called “My Bitch” with a verse aimed at Tha Row’s former honcho. Recently photographed together, the pair seem cool nowadays. 40’s worked with each, and even showed out on Suge Knight Represents The Chronic 2000 which was a 1999 album aimed at baller-blocking Dr. Dre.

40 brought all these parties together, and DubCNN got some ill photos of the affair. Following Suge and Snoop’s snap together last year, is this a further sign of unification to come?
