Editorial Reviews

In hip hop, and in life, it's easy to follow the leader. But the road less traveled is usually the one bearing the footsteps of the true innovators. People with their own vision, their own style. People like Eightball & MJG. Born in Memphis, TN, Eightball (Premro Smith) and MJG (Marlon Jermaine Goodwin) traveled throughout the south with no one in front of them and no one behind them. Their music took them through Georgia and Texas and all over the southern region, lead by fans hungry for something new and different something that spoke to them. 'Ridin' High,' their sophomore release for Bad Boy Records is out this summer and is their strongest album ever. Hard-hitting Hip-Hop, with a respectful nod to R&B and the blues, the set opens with a dramatic intro that seems to forewarn listeners of what's to come. Equally dramatic is the track 'Fuck That,' where the duo reaffirm their musical stance. 'It ain't a song for the club,' says Eightball. 'We weren't looking for a single, we weren't trying to please nobody. It was just Eightball & MJG being raw, being us. That's what I like about it. If you had to put it in a category, just say it's an Eightball MJG song. This is explicit vinyl version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ridin On E (2 and 1/2 stars) June 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
What happens when you let the queen of pop(Puffy)gain full control of your album? You get a commercialized monstrosity called Ridin High. As long as I have been listening to 8-Ball & MJG I've never known them to make a bad album. Until now! The Good: Relax And Take Notes and Turn Up The Bump reminds us of the old school Ball & G that everybody is fond of. Cruisin (featuring Slim of 112 and Three 6 Mafia)grew on me and so did Pimpin Dont Fail Me Now(featuring Juvenile). Get Low and Stand Up are also slammin highlights. One last note: MJG floored 8-Ball on Turn Up The Bump and Get Low(not that 8-Ball's rhymes were bad its just that MJG's caught your attention). The Bad: Take It Off sounds like a forced song for the ladies, Killer Mike had the only notable verse in Runnin Out Of Bud, Pimp C had the only verse worth talking about on Whatchu Gonna Do(another song with a dumb hook) and Worldwide is the most obvious rush job track on the album. The Ugly: Ridin High is one the worst songs on here and to put southern giants like Ball & G over a clubby beat that would suit Ciara just fine is insulting to a fault. 30 Rocks is the worst song on here period! The sissy beat, the bland rhymes from Ball & G, the nonsensical hook and is Diddy that delusional that he doesnt realize how much he sucks as a rapper? Hickory Dickory Dock and Alcohol, P**** And Weed(Wow! What a title) are two wack tracks with dumb hooks and Clap On(featuring Yung Joc) should have been disposed of quickly. Memphis is halfhearted tribute to their hometown over a campy beat. Bottom Line: Ridin High is 8-Ball and MJG's worst album. They sound like they rushed a lot of the songs, the production was weak and 8-Ball and MJG sound like they're bored on most of the tracks. To 8-Ball & MJG: We forgive you for Ridin High. Just break camp from Bad Boy Records and that acne-faced freak of nature and we will pretend like this album never happened. PEACE!

3.0 out of 5 stars Blame it on Puffy and Bad Boy South June 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the reviewer who wrote that Puffy and Bad Boy are to blame for this album. Man, long gone are the days when Eightball and MJG had their own style, both lyrically and musically. Ever since they signed with Bad Boy all that changed. Diddy pushed them into a much more comercial direction, so that the album sound pretty much like most other albums coming out of the Dirty South. And it wasn't like that back then! Listen to their first 5 albums, and you could see that Ball and G were doing their own thing! And they even sold much more back then (let's face it, Diddy does nothing to promote this album, and that's why it hasn't sold well). They weren't able to do that on this album (at least on most songs). It's like they took a few steps BACK. "Livin' Legends" was much better. For example, the first single "Relax and take notes" is a deccent track, and that's it - how it was chosen to be a single is beyond my understanding.

Anyway, the album itself is nice, but overall most of it doesn't stand up. There are about 5 great songs, and the rest range between avarege and weak (Especially that "Hickery Dickery Dock". What the hell was the label thinking?? You KNOW that Ball and G would've never make a song like that!). The whole album sound too much like a Lil' Jon/TI/Young Jeezy album. Too much sreaming, too much of that crunk sound, too much screaming by MJG (remember how smooth he used to be? Not those game are gone_... The good songs are those who sound different. But the album overall isn't as melodic and soulful like their previous albums. Lyrically the album is also the weakest they've ever done. It's not as personal and deep like their previous albums, and it's obvious it's all Bad Boy's directions... Anyway, the bottom line is that it's an OK album, nothing special, but Ball and G are still living legends, and with their talent they are able to save the album and make it an enjoyable listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Blame Puffy March 27, 2007
By Chip
Format:Audio CD
It is sad that these two southern hip-hop legends good names have been blemished by Bad Boy records. The transformation from their classic hit "on the outside looking in" along with a host of other great albums to this disgrace is quite sad. I'm sure your boy puffy offered alot more money and fame than they have ever had in the underground, and it hurt 'em. Some will say "well thats what you get for being a sell out" but if your in the game making underground hits for almost 2 decades and your only know to a small region, you may not feel the accomplishment or respect you deserve. I forgive them, not Puffy. Buy some of their old stuff.

With over 13 years of being in the rap game, 8Ball and MJG have seen the ups and downs of the industry through first-hand experience. They also know that the landscape of Hip-Hop has changed about a dozen times since their 1993 debut album Comin' Out Hard. With modest success from being on various independent labels (most notable being Suave House), the crew was signed to Bad Boy by Diddy and released their major label debut Living Legends in 2004. Still getting much of the same buzz as they did when they were on top of the underground scene, they did sell in excess of 750,000 copies (more than Diddy was able to do with Press Play in 2006). So with the release of Ridin High, the duo are hoping to at least match that success, but actually take a step backwards in the end. The album starts off pretty good with songs like the radio-friendly "Cruzin" featuring Project Pat and Slim of 112, the grimy anthem "Relax And Take Notes" featuring Notorious B.I.G. (per Diddy's request I'm sure), and the energetic, bass-heavy "Turn Up The Bump." Pimp C rolls through to rep for Houston on "Watchu Gonna Do," Killer Mike resurfaces for the entertaining track "Running Out Of Bud," Yung Joc makes a so-so appearance for the thumping "Clap On," and Jazza Pha and Juvenile bring all of their talents on board for "Pimpin Don't Fail Me Now" (a play on the chorus to Missy Elliott's "Pussycat"). Unfortunately there are huge missteps with a couple of tracks on this album. Read more ›
