E-40 made Rolling Stone‘s list for the 100 Greatest West Coast hip-hop songs with “Captain Save a Hoe,” but he believes another one of his hits should have made the cut.
Taking to Twitter Wednesday, he showed his appreciation for the mention while noting the missing song.
“Hey Rolling Stone, appreciate you guys for including ‘Captain Save a Hoe’ at No. 18 of your 100 Greatest West Coast Hip-Hop Songs of All Time,” E-40 tweeted. “But there’s no excuse for ‘Tell Me When To Go’ being completely left off the list #Timeless.”
“Captain Save a Hoe” released in 1994 and peaked at #94 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Tell Me When To Go” dropped years later in 2006, peaking at #35 on the Hot 100 list. It has since been certified Gold by the RIAA.
E-40’s “Captain Save a Hoe” joins Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg‘s “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang,” Too $hort‘s “Blow the Whistle,” Ice Cube‘s “It Was A Good Day” and other songs that have landed in the top 20.
