    8&MJG got genuine duo dynamics, there's tons of great rap duos, at least EC which is my area of interest. But as a previous speaker emphasized, 8Ball&MJGs underappreciated. Im no expert on 2days dirty south or even WC scene - geto boys, cube, DPGz etc. was my table when many (Cube especially) meshed with the EC radicalism early 90's & after pacs death there was a short period of crossing over; lending out production crews, doing collabs etc. - but Skull Duggery would be a perfect addition to the output of 8Ball&MJG, got a great voice & his raps, while not groundbreaking or super-characteristic, flows naturally & tell far darker stories than the No Limit Master P production style could ever amplify correctly. Would dig a collab. But he got thrown in prison 05 for possession of illegal arms & kiddie porn found on his computer, later, by cops in the same unit tasked w/ the arrest (easy to whet a weak prosecution by fuckin round wit the seized laptops browser but cant know 4 sure ofc).

    I still feel like people don't appreciate their music enough. I rarely see people listening to them anymore which is just sad, because their first 4 albums are all amazing, with great replay value and probably some of the best southern material. Personally, I think that "Space age 4 Ever" is where they kinda lost it but many people would probably disagree (one Swizz Beatz song and two Jazze Pha songs is way too much ). Everything after that is not bad and definitely better than what other southern artist can offer but still kinda generic and not that exciting. It sucks that their fans seem to mostly listen to their last few "hit" albums.
