When you’ve been in the game nearly 30 years, your career is movie material. E-40 takes a balcony seat and screens clips from his legendary career in this new video for “Somebody.” For the concept, 40 narrates a character trying to find a purpose in life.

“The song is a homage to gospel singerΒ Freddie Jackson‘s ‘Have You Ever Loved Somebody,'” says 40. “The boy Ricco Barrino came up with the hook. In this song, I’m somebody trying to be somebody, not so much as a rapper, butΒ as an ordinary guy. I’m talking about – should I buy a food truck, should I get in the tech world and create an app?Β Where am I going in life in life with this shit? I’m playing the narrator.”

“Somebody” in featured on 40’s 2016 double-album The D-Boy Diaries Book 1 & 2.
