8Ball & MJG

  • How you met 8Ball & MJG: depends on if you went to middle school with the both of them. Otherwise, it may have been their 1993 studio album debut, Comin’ Out Hard
  • The significance of that release: it helped to define the genre of dirty south hip-hop early on, predating both OutKast’s Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and Goodie Mob’s Soul Food by one and two years respectively
  • If your ears were too clean for the dirty south back then: your first encounter with 8Ball & MJG was probably their verse on Three 6 Mafia’s 2005 hit “Stay Fly,” which was the biggest single for both groups
  • Their other accomplishments: signing with Diddy’s label Bad Boy South, hitting the top of the charts with the 2004 album Living Legends, breaking from Diddy, and unleashing song after song with the likes of Lil Jon, T.I., Soulja Boy, Lil Boosie, and Ludacris
  • How you know Slim Thug: He’s the booming-voiced, Houston-based MC behind 2015’s Hogg Life: The Beginning, Pt. 1 of 4
  • How you know Crucial Conflict: For the Chicago-based hip-hop group’s mid-‘90s hit “Hay”
  • Also appearing: hip-hop act Boss Life
