With the help of one of his favorite producers, E-40 crafted one of the most versatile albums of his career with 2002's Grit & Grind. "It was a transition into the new millennium. I had Rick Rock beats and the styles that I was flippin' on there were quite impressive," remembered 40. "That one had that song, 'The Slap.' I coined that word and can't nobody say I didn't."
