Bill Ellis of Commercial Appeal writes 8Ball & MJG ”..not your average hard-core rappers”


In a recent article published in the Commercial Appeal, music columnist Bill Ellis give the legendary duo, 8Ball & MJG much props. We believe he says it best when he mentions “Ball & G” are quote “..not your average hard-core rappers.”

Celebrating more than a decade representing Memphis in the rap game, Orange Mound pals 8Ball & MJG continue to strut their Bluff City best on new album Living Legends.

Bill Ellis writes “..the Living Legends lead single, “You Don’t Want Drama,” bounces to a hypnotic helix of synth grooves that spirals all the way to in-your-face infamy.”

True, the duo get truly gangsta on only one tune, “Don’t Make”; yet even in their early Suave House days, 8Ball & MJG were always much smarter and deeper than your average hard-core rappers.

Expect Living Legends to be their biggest seller yet.
