While Dirty South legends 8 Ball and MJG continue making music together, (They just signed with Atlanta superstar T.I.’s Grand Hustle label) 8 Ball has now also enlisted Memphis’ hottest rappers for his new album “Memphis All Stars.” This new album features rap music megastars including Three 6 Mafia, Yo Gotti, MJG, Project Pat, and Gangsta Black.
8Ball showcases his talent on the single “Gettin’ it in,” along side MJG, and another hip hop all star Yo Gotti. It’s a gritty Hip Hop single that is guaranteed to have the clubs going crazy.
8 Ball is in the midst of one of the most storied careers in the music business. He already has nine gold and platinum albums including: Comin’ Out Hard, In Our Lifetime, On the Outside Looking In, Space Age 4 Eva, Living Legends, Lost, Almost Famous, and Lay It Down. Keep in mind that 8 Ball has been able to push over 7 million albums throughout his career without the help of radio or video – his success has largely been achieved by creating great music, touring, and pounding the streets.
Over the past decade, 8 Ball has made some major contributions to hip hop including the creation of Bounce Music which has now evolved into Crunk and had one of the hottest songs in hip hop history – “Stay Fly” with Three-Six Mafia. With 15+ years in the game, Eightball (Premro Smith) and MJG (Marlon Goodwin) have developed a sound that is still appreciated and emulated more than a decade after they stepped on the scene.
