E40 is good but not from Oakland... He from Vallejo!

He is just a good rapper. And he represents Oakland ca.

9Del Tha Funkee Homosapien

most underated rapper in the bay area

Underrated emcee. Member of the Hieroglyphics and cousin of Ice Cube. Really dope... Mistadobalina!

The whole Hieroglyphics crew should be in the top 5! Word play second to none! Well E-40 has crazy slang and original delivery but, from ValleyJoe! Tupac was born on the Least Coast! All in all, HIERO!
