Biography

8Ball & MJG is an American hip hop duo from Memphis, Tennessee. Consist of Premrose Smith (8Ball) and Marlon Jermaine Goodwin (MJG).The two rappers met at Ridgeway Middle School in 1984.

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. On Top of the World was particularly succeessful, peaking at #8 on the Billboard Hot 200 and being certified Gold. After those albums both 8Ball & MJG released solo albums, first MJG’s No More Glory in 1997 and then 8Ball’s Lost in 1998. They reunited in 1999 to release their fourth album as a group, titled In Our Lifetime, Vol. 1

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.

    @Ninja Bitch please, suggest the correction. That would improve tags..., their newer shit were released under the 8Ball & MJG. But it's still the same artist so... I'm just sayin'. Keep your cool wigga.

    Haven't listened to much of their shit, and since spotify has "On Top of the World" with this tag, it's the one I'll roll with.
