After Nef’s manager was able to find Peezy, the rapper played his music to E-40. “He spit real shit, shit I can relate to,” said E-40. “His aggressiveness on the microphone, you can hear all the words clear, you can tell it’s from the heart. I can relate to what he’s saying, because I was once 20 years old. And he smart too.”
