22 Apr HipHopDX Review: E-40 & B-Legit Display Vet Stripes On “Connected & Respected”
Three decades since real-life cousins E-40 and B-Legit founded pioneering Bay Area quartet The Click, both remain regional OGs regardless of their individual career journeys.
Which makes their joint Connected & Respected project a welcome surprise blending tag-team hood sermons, trunk-rattling production and features leaning more toward local talent. However, the project is anchored by 40-Water’s signature other-dimensional approach to rhyme and Legit’s more direct techniques. Similar to most duet rap ventures, Connected & Respected limits its ambitions to the main unifier, in this case harnessing the Bay Area sound.
