PostSubject: 8Ball & MJG?   Wed 06 Oct 2010, 10:07 am






People always talk about Kast and UGK as the top duo's of the south and even hip hop period. But what about Ball & G? I was listening to In Our Lifetime Vol. 1 this morning and something hit me. These boys are nothing nice on that mic device and should be considered top tier emcees period. And neither member is better than the other one without some serious debate. So I got a little questionaire of sorts:

Where do they rank in your fav grp list?

Whats their top 3 albums (in order) in your opinion?

Are they underrated or overrated or neither?

In their prime could they hang with Outkast lyrically?

Who is better 8Ball or MJG?

How many classic albums do they have?

Lost or No More Glory?

Where do they rank in your fav grp list? Top 10 maybe? Definitely top 15

Whats their top 3 albums (in order) in your opinion? On Top Of The World, Comin out Hard, In Our Lifetime

Are they underrated or overrated or neither? Underrated

In their prime could they hang with Outkast lyrically? No, but few groups can say they could hang with Kast lyrically

Who is better 8Ball or MJG? Eightball

How many classic albums do they have? 2-3, COH and OTOTW are 5 stars. Depending on the day, IOL could be 5 stars too

Lost or No More Glory? Lost

I'm familiar with 8Ball & MJG, and at the current moment, the only albums I own from them are On Top Of The World (5 stars) and Living Legends. I still plan to cop Comin Out Hard and In Our Lifetime. I do feel that their underrated, and in their prime, they couldn't hang with Outkast lyrically. I like 8Ball more than MJG, but MJG is good also.

Im in no way a Ball & G expert but I see 8Ball as the front man. 'Just Like Candy' is my fav track by them.

Where do they rank in your fav grp list? Top 10-15.

Whats their top 3 albums (in order) in your opinion?
Top Of The World
In Our Lifetime
Comin Out Hard

Are they underrated or overrated or neither?
Underrated as hell. I'll put them up against UGK or Kast or any group around.

In their prime could they hang with Outkast lyrically? I say yes. Ball and G were murking trks flow, style wise and lyrically. Dre and Big Boi are hell also but they are overrated also imo. Honestly Ball & G combined top UGK on the mic and only are behind Kast.

Who is better 8Ball or MJG? MJG (yrs ago I wold have said Ball but he as lost a lot of his steam. JG still kills it)

How many classic albums do they have? Only one 5 star album imo.

Lost or No More Glory? Lost

Less gay than Demarsh, maybe.

It basically means 'pause'

Fine, PAUSE.

However on a side note yall need to let that dude go (PAUSE), it's not like he's here to defend himself.

Right now yall are,

He's gay, there is nothing to defend himself about. He's admitted he's gay, its not like they are calling him a name or talking bad about him.

Are references to him used in a positive or negative manner?

As a person he's been reduced to that one aspect of his persona.

Gay is used generally as a negative, clownish, or bad thing here... is it technically offense? I'm sure to some, do I think shaun or anyone else is homophobic? nope... has he been reduced to one aspect? he did that to himself on amazon, so how is it wrong for us to treat him how he presents himself?

If you're inherently perceived as negative due to a particular aspect, how else are you going to react when it's used casually in a pejorative fashion?

If you feel like everyone is snapping at you (whether intentionally or unintentionally) you're probably going to become defensive. Just saying.

Gay is Gay. It's been gay. I mean, I'm sorry it was perceived that way, but whenever I used it as a kid I didn't even know that men buttfucked on the regular. I can understand how someone might take offense, but if you are confident in yourself that shit ain't going to phase you
if you are going to freak out over the smallest shit, like demarsh did, then expect to be defined by it.

I'm simply asking what's the point of perpetuating negativity for a man who's not here to cause you problems? What's the science behind that is all I'm saying?

same point in defending a man or taking offense for some who is not here... there is no point... shaun and half think its funny... we think demarsh and his hyper sensitive gay freakouts were funny...we don't give a fuck about him, he is just a joke to us...simple as that. what's your motivation?

1) it's like hearing the same joke 1000 times, you laughed the first 10, chuckled the next 20 but after awhile it gets played out

2) I've seen people reduced to a punchline before in real life and its ill effects, and the only reason it stopped was cause I said something. People would poke fun of the person's quirks until it got to the point they would poke fun of the person just to see the quirks. The folks claimed they poked fun because of the quirks as if one caused the other. Essentially it makes the person they are poking fun of responsible for their actions. It's a dangerous cycle. We're on the internet so I doubt it will ever get that bad. However I felt needed to say something cause I've seen it before. That's just me.

So that's my motivation. I hope that clarifies everything.

I think you've been watching too much Anderson Cooper lately and think you need to stand up for cyber bullying.

Ball is not the de facto "front man" They share top billing, and i can think of plenty of tracks were MJG outshines Ball. They are perfect compliments to one another, and it's merely a matter of personal taste.

I own Space Age 4 Eva, In Our Lifetime, Living Legends & Ridin' High. I am really not too much of an expert on their previous material. From these albums, In Our Lifetime would be my favorite. I also own Lost & No More Glory. I would give a slight edge to Lost.

In their prime could they hang with Outkast lyrically? No

Who is better 8Ball or MJG? Doesn't really matter

How many classic albums do they have? 2 so far....I haven't listened to every single album I think

I have heard that one before. Its quite good. I guess it and Living Legends could be interchangeable in my top 3. Living Legends was the 1st album I heard from them and drew me to them. Guess it has a sort of nostalgic "advantage".

Where do they rank in your fav grp list? As of right now I'd say Top 20 at best, probably outside of that if I sat down and made a list though.

Whats their top 3 albums (in order) in your opinion? On Top Of The World, In Our Lifetime, Comin Out Hard

Are they underrated or overrated or neither? Neither, they're good but there's at least 4 other Southern groups I like more.

In their prime could they hang with Outkast lyrically? No, but there's not many groups that can.

Who is better 8Ball or MJG? 8Ball was better in the Suave House era, but nowadays I'd say MJG.

How many classic albums do they have? Only 1 classic IMO.

Lost or No More Glory? Lost, but NMG was dope as well.
