E-40 – Loyalty and Betrayal Lyrics | Genius Lyrics
The reality is that your perspective determines whether you view loyalty and betrayal as positive or negative. If you benefit from the betrayal, you will most likely view it as a good thing. For example, if a younger brother killed an older brother in order to become king, this betrayal would be considered beneficial to the younger brother. However, the kingdom as a whole would see this act as very different, an ultimate betrayal. What would the younger son be capable of doing once he would have power? It is important to have a loyal following in a kingdom, betraying the trust of the people to get to the position of king/ruler does nothing positive to help that following.
Whether you are betraying friends, family, country, team or even a gang, there is still a negative aspect to it. Although you will not be reading it in this course, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the most famous stories of betrayal. After the Count's betrayal, he gets his revenge. The Count had to earn the trust of the people who had betrayed him before he could betray them and take his revenge. In this instance, betrayal is good simply because the larger need for justice is satisfied.
Another perspective to consider is marketing. Teams of advertisers try to build product loyalty. You would be amazed how much companies know about your purchasing history, wants, and needs. With this knowledge, companies want you to continue to climb the “loyalty ladder” with their product.
Loyalty and Betrayal - Oxford Scholarship
One of E-40's spottier efforts, Loyalty and Betrayal boasts a good number of highlights, along with some tracks that simply don't work well, and practically every track features a guest. The highlights include the Eightball and Jazze Pha collaboration, "Ya Blind"; the Nate Dogg and Battlecat collaboration, "Nah, Nah..."; and the Click collaboration, "Pop Ya Collar." Clearly not afraid to experiment with different styles and collaborators, E-40 is at his most unpredictable on Loyalty and Betrayal. It doesn't make for one of his better albums, though it does make for an interesting one, so long as you don't mind skipping past the duds to find the highlights.
