Ghetto Report Card which will be

video interview, host an exclusive
album listening party, and launch a fly-away
contest where contestants can enter to
win tickets to New York to meet with E-40 and executive producer of the album,
Lil” Jon for the album listening
Representatives for both Warner Bros. Records and MySpace are equally excited
about the relationship. “We’re thrilled to get involved with E-40’s
project. He’s a celebrated pioneer in the hip hop community that has taken the
unique ‘do it yourself’ approach to handling his career that MySpace encourages,”
says MySpace Urban Marketing & Events Coordinator Roslynn Cobarrubias.
“Official MySpace DJs across the country are excited to take the
hyphy movement national.”
Platinum-selling artist E-40’s twelfth CD release, My Ghetto Report Card, will be executive produced by BME head Lil’ Jon and features other notable producers Kanye West,
Rick Rock, and E-40’s son, Droop-e of the Pharmasutides, with guest appearances by
Lil’ Scrappy, Mike Jones, Juelz Santana, Turf Talk, and B-Legit.
