E-40 (ft. Kendrick Lamar, Droop-E)
“Catch a Fade”

If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like if E-40 ran Fight Club, it’s your lucky day: the legendary Bay Area MC has unveiled his shadowy new clip for “Catch a Fade,” featuring Kendrick Lamar and Droop-E (who, by the way, just so happens to be E-40’s son). There’s lots of boxing, lots of smoke, and lots of glaring light. But best of all is the track itself: Lamar’s snaky, monotone flow is the perfect partner to E-40’s more theatrical style. It would have been cool to see the rappers taking part in the brawls, too — seeing E-40 go to town on some poor fool would be too awesome for words — but the video and the song makes it clear that these three rappers are on a different level entirely.
