"Most people say that E-40 never topped In A Major Way but I beg to differ. He not only topped it with this album, he made it a distant memory. I loved In A Major Way but lets be real. How many of you remember it after hearing this album? Exactly. The album starts off with Record Haters where E-40 disses the pants off Rasheed Wallace and AZ. I like Az but he was out of line dissing 40 water and how is Rasheed Wallace dissing anybody? Anybody who heard him rap before knows that he shouldnt be within 3 point distance of a microphone(Im talking Shaquille O Neal wack). Rappers Ball with Too Short and K-Ci is a classic joint. 2pac(RIP) and B-Legit join E-40 on the spectacular Million Dollar Spot. Ring It featuring Spice 1 and Keek Da Sneak is another classic joint and why this song was never an anthem out here still bothers me. E-40 also has you covered on the positive tip with The Story and Things'll Never Change(which beautifully samples Bruce Hornsby's The Way It Is). Some people think I Wanna Thank You with Suga T is corny but is still a highlight track in my opinion. Circumstances is another bangin track that features The Luniz, T-Pup, Celly Cel and Kokane. The only tracks I couldnt feel is My Drinking Club, Keep Pimpin and Growing Up(he could have left the kid who was rapping offbeat of that track you know). The rest of the album is still noteworthy. Bottom Line: E-40's Tha Hall Of Game is his best work and is definetely a highlight album of 1996. This album came out at a time when you can expect most album that come out to be good. Boy do I miss those days. Anyway E-40 put a lot effort into this album and it paid off. Standout tracks: RECORD HATERS, RAPPERS BALL, MILLION DOLLAR SPOT, THE STORY, RING IT, I LIKE WHAT YOU DO TO ME, THINGS'LL NEVER CHANGE, CIRCUMSTANCES and SMEBBIN."
