Rapper Earl Stevens, otherwise known as E-40, all set for a concert tour in the USA. Sources revealed that E-40 is planning to make the tour in late 2015. The founding member of the rap group ‘The Click’ has claimed that he has really missed rapping ever since he started a wine selling business of his own. E-40, who started his career as a rapper, is now an entrepreneur as well as an investor.
The concert is scheduled to take place starting from this October. It'll end in the 19th of December. Between these days, six concerts are going to take place in six different locations. The tickets can be bought or ordered online. Webites like www.songkick.com, www.ticketmaster.com and many other similar sites have offered this facility. Everyone is eagerly awaiting this awesome concert by E-40 and his colleagues.
E-40, born in the 15th of November, 1967, is now 48 years of age. He started his career in 1990, when he established his legendary group ‘The Click’ along with some of his close buddies. He started as an underground rapper but he then went main-stream and made his solo album debut in 1993. His popular songs, 1-Luv and Things’ll Never Change, had charted on the popular Billboard Hot 100.
In 2003, E-40 began hosting a radio program, named as the E-Feezy in San Francisco. He continued in this project for five whole years. During this period he also started to explore different investment opportunities. Currently E-40 has shares in big companies like the Microsoft.
E-40 has also established several big time companies. He had opened a Fatburger franchise in Pleasant Hill, California alongside his partner, Chester McGlockton, a former NFL player. In 2007, E-40 signed a franchise agreement with Wingstop Restaurants, Inc. The following year E-40 established a new set of energy drinks and called them “40 Water”.
As of now, E-40 seems to be obsessed with wine and has even established his own wine business. The Earl Stevens Selections (the name he gave to his wine) is a new favorite amongst the crowd now. When asked why he didn’t use his common name E-40 on the wine, he replied that he did not want people to think that it was some rappers’ wine.
When asked if his wine business would take over his music life, E-40 replied, “No. I love music too much. Besides, I was making music when I was poor, so why would I stop now just because I have a little money? What’s funny is to see how much the music business prepared me for the wine hustle.”
The 1.88m tall rapper turned investor, who was born in a poor family, now has a net worth of 8 million dollars. He married his girlfriend Tracy Stevens in 1991 after dating for some time. The couple has been seen together in various music awards. They just celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary this year, 2015, in the 12th of August.
As of now, E-40 has more than 456k followers in the Instagram. He does not have an account in the Twitter yet. Let’s hope that his concert tour turns out to be a grand success.
