Vallejo-raised rapper and entrepreneur E-40, whose real name is Earl Stevens, has announced the launching of Earl Stevens Selections, wine products. Earl Stevens Selections includes white and red wines. The wines come in different flavors, including Mangoscato, Function Red Blend and Moscato.
“I wanted to create my own wine because I’m a huge wine connoisseur,” said E-40. “I love wine and I got a name for myself so I decided to make my own.”
Bottles from the collection are produced in Northern California, an area E-40 has often represented in his music. E-40 has released over ten albums, appeared on numerous movie soundtracks, and has also done guest appearances on a host of other rap albums. He rose to even higher mainstream popularity in 2006 with his single “Tell Me When to Go” which was produced by Lil Jon.
E-40 is also prepping the release of three additional volumes of his Block Brochure series, set to be released December 10. Volumes 4, 5 and 6 are slated to follow up on last year’s volumes 1, 2, and 3.
