ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
8 Ball & Mjg is an American hip hop duo from Memphis, Tennessee, consisting of rappers 8Ball and MJG.

They first appeared on the rap scene with their 1993 album Comin' Out Hard. The album was successful commercially as well as critically and established the group as a prominent act in the then emerging Southern Rap scene. Their subsequent albums in the 1990s including 1994's On the Outside Looking In, and 1995's On Top of the World cemented their status as some of the South's best rappers and would later allow them to declare on their 2004 album that they were Living Legends (as the album was titled).

For their later releases they signed with Bad Boy Records. Their first album for Bad Boy Records, Living Legends, was certified Gold by the RIAA. Their second album on Bad Boy Records was titled Ridin High and was released in March 2007.

Commercially one of the high points of 8Ball & MJG's career was their being featured on Three 6 Mafia's hit song "Stay Fly" in 2005. That song peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, which is the biggest hit of Three 6 Mafia's career and the biggest hit for 8Ball & MJG. The song was a collaboration between two of the most successful rap groups from the state of Tennessee, where Three 6 Mafia also hail from.

Today 8Ball and MJG also head their own record labels. 8Ball heads 8 Ways Entertainment (distributed by Koch Entertainment), while MJG heads MJG Muzik. On their label are the young, up and coming Memphis duo, Da Volunteers, who are widely known throughout the Southern United States for their 2006 single, "What's Yo Favorite Color?", which glorifies their neighborhood of Orange Mound.

In March 2008, MJG signed a deal in Atlanta with 404 Music, Inc. to release his newest solo album entitled, This Might Be The Day. The album is scheduled for release June 2008.

These two rappers met at Ridgeway Middle School in 1984.

The group has recently announced that they have signed on to T.I.'s record label Grand Hustle.
