After 32 years together, rapper E-40 and his wife are still going strong.

The rapper shared on Twitter Thursday that he and his wife Tracy have been married for 26 years. 

Hailing from the of California's Bay Area, the couple met in high school and became sweethearts. 

In 2013, the hitmaker, known for his hit song, "Tell Me When To Go" and his love for the Golden State Warriors told XXL the key to their happy relationship is communication.

"It’s always good when two people like the same things," he said. "The conversation has to naturally happen. That’s when you get into “what you like” and “what are you in to.” Me and Her [Tracy] we love bowling, me and my wife. Any relationship, I’m talking about even with your kids, when you got something they can relate to—both of y’all—it helps. Otherwise it’s going to be like, “whats up, whats up.” [Laughs} Am I lying though?  Its good to adjust to each other liking because you might like something that she don’t like and vice versa. Communication, that keeps everything cool. Not holding anything back, you got to tell each other what’s on your mind, that’s really it. Otherwise when one gets mad at one, it can burst and you just let it out and it can just come out wrong. We’ve been together for 28 years going on to 29. We met in high school but we really met in junior high. I like her [Tracy] since the 8th grade [Laughs]."

Wishing the happy couple many more.
