BAY AREA RAPPER E-40 AND L.A.s THIRD DEGREE DO THEIR THING ON UPCOMING ALBUM RELEASE

Bay Area hiphop veteran E-40 will be featured on L.A. hiphop artist Third Degrees upcoming single, Do My Thang. The highly anticipated track is slated to appear on Third Degrees upcoming debut album, The Pedestrian, which had originally been scheduled for release late last year until legal negotiations held the album up. The disc will hit retail outlets on August 2.

Third Degree (Wayne Gillory) walks it like he talks it on this hook-laden, jeep ready album. Third, who hails from South Central Los Angeles, grew up living right around the corner from Dub C of Westside Connection. Says Third, I went to Hiphop High. Washington High School was where I came up. A lot of hiphop artists went there, like Dub C, Crazy Tunes from The Maad Circle, YoYo, DJ Alladin, and Sir Jinx, who DJs for Xzibit, and more. Crenshaw High may have had all the sports people locked up, but Washington has had the music people.

Thirds album is jam packed with 21 serious tracks, including the single Do My Thang, featuring E-40. I like real writers who have subjects and topics, Third proclaims. Im a purist kind of guy.
While the intersection pictured on the albums cover is the corner of L.A.s Imperial and Western, Thirds songs reflect hiphop sensibilities emanating on corners in areas all over the country, so his rhymes hit home with those who are both near and far. Wherever you are when you listen to this album, youre still at the intersection of hiphop beats and masterful rhymes, as the Pedestrian makes his way through your speakers.

The long awaited album is slated for release on Blak Ice Records.
