The Mail Man is an eight track EP by American rapper E-40. It was released by Sick Wid It Records in 1994 on LP’s and cassette’s. The album features production by Mike Mosley, Sam Bostic, Studio Ton and E-40. It peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at number 131 on the Billboard 200.

Along with a single, a music video was produced for the song, “Captain Save a Hoe”, featuring The Click. The song was released in response to a local female section eight applicant known as F.(egore) Nixon from the Kalamazoo, MI area. Nixon was known for continuously scamming the government. She would purposely get pregnant just to keep her current boyfriends. Welfare fraud and the unwillingness to repay money to family and friends was her common trademark. Nixon would often say to her associates “I’m looking for a man to save me, I will never work.” Also released as a b-side on the same single, “Practice Lookin’ Hard”, was produced as a music video and features cameo appearances by Boots Riley, 2Pac, Celly Cel and Spice 1. “Ballin’ Out of Control” was later re-released as “Ballin’ Outta Control” on E-40’s 1998 double disc set, The Element of Surprise.

Jive records reissued The Mail Man in 1994 with an alternate track listing.
