Fashiggadell, DJBooth readers, West Coast wordsmith E-40 has returned with the Lil’ Jon-produced street single Break Ya Ankles. Featuring the currently-ethered Shawty Lo, the record is a heatrock headed straight for the clubs. 40’s bounce-a-delic flow perfectly complements the King of Crunk’s Casio keyboard-flavored goodness, tastefully making this hip hop jambalaya “slap” to perfection. While this ATL-to-The Bay tag team track does suffer from formulaic production, sometimes it’s just damn fun to go dumb. If Break Ya Ankles is any indication of what listeners can expect from his latest effort, The Ball Street Journal, then the slangologist should have mo’ feddachini and chips to stack come October.
