Memphis legends, 8Ball & MJG, are ready to get back to business. The duo recently inked a deal with Grand Hustle, where they will be dropping their next album, Ten Toes Down.
Via a partnership with E1 Music (formerly Koch Records), Grand Hustle presents the upcoming album, which will feature Snoop Dogg, T.I., Bun B, David Banner, and Young Dro while production will include Frank Nitti of Nitti Beats, Drumma Boy, David Banner, Nard & B, and Mo B. Dick.
“I’m happy to be working with America’s #1 independent, E1 Music,” said Grand Hustle’s boss, T.I.
The first single is the album’s title track. A video for it was just shot by director Gabriel Hart, and will be serviced shortly.
“Ten Toes Down, in my opinion, is one of the best 8Ball & MJG albums ever,” said 8Ball. “It’s a heart-felt, soul-filled, portion of the lives of 8Ball & MJG. 8Ball & MJG sounds and feels like 8Ball & MJG on this album 4sho!”
Ever since the duo’s 1993 successful debut, Comin’ Hard, 8Ball & MJG have been at the forefront of the southern rap movement. They’ve gone onto release 11 albums, several of which went gold. Their 2004 Livin Legends album peaked at no. 3 on the Billboard Top 200.
The duo later teamed up with Three 6 Mafia for the latter’s hit single, “Stay Fly,” which brought both Memphis groups much success.
Ten Toes Down is slated for release April 6.
