8Ball & MJG To Possibly Record An Album With Big K.R.I.T.

8Ball says that he and MJG may very well record an album with Big K.R.I.T.

Memphis legend 8Ball of the duo 8Ball and MJG recently sat down with Kevin Nottingham to discuss his upcoming eighth solo album Life's Quest, due out on July 17 via eOne Music/Push Management. During the interview, however, 8Ball looked forward and addressed the possibility of recording an LP with "Money On the Floor" collaborator Big K.R.I.T. 

8Ball explained that he and MJG had already recorded nearly ten songs with K.R.I.T., including "Money On the Floor" and his own song "We Buy Gold" in one session alone. He added that the Def Jam signee has an "old soul," akin to his and MJG's.

"[K.R.I.T.'s] 'Money On the Floor' spawned like five or six other songs," he explained. "Like the song that’s on my album, 'We Buy Gold,' came from all of that. We went in the studio a couple a days in Atlanta at Tree Sound and banged out about five or six one day. So I think [recording a complete album is] possible. That kid has got a definite old soul, you feel me?"

8Ball also reflected on his and MJG's short-lived history with Bad Boy Records in the early the 2000's. He explained that the Memphis duo never really felt at home with Diddy, and that the label made some decisions that rubbed them the wrong way. Still, he says he doesn't regret signing with the powerhouse imprint, as 8 Ball and MJG did enjoy some success with the label. 

"A lot happened back then during that little period of 8Ball and MJG’s journey through whatever," he recalled. "A lot of shit happened, a lot of shit was going on and I just think we…like both parties were not all the way comfortable with each other, you feel me? There was a lot of stuff that Bad Boy had done that we didn’t agree with a lot of times and a lot of stuff that we did that they didn’t agree with. I don’t think the fit was what we thought it was gonna be [for] both parties. You know, I think that was just the biggest issue. Bad Boy is like prime rib and 8Ball and MJG is a hamburger, you feel me? They both beef but it just ain’t the same. It didn’t build as it should have."

He continued, "I do not regret signing with them and I think it was a powerful chapter in the Ball and G story. You know that first record, Living Legends, man that shit did awesome. That single 'You Don’t Want Drama' was a big single off that album. But I think we was trying to find our way again with the music on the second album and that’s kind of where we got lost at."

    Don't do it MJG/8ball. KRIT is not about his paper. You won't make money off this project. Do a song with Tyga and Nicki...then you guys will get paid. YMCMB stay getting money.

      Maybe 8Ball & MJG aren't doing it for the paper. Maybe they just want to make good music with KRIT. Nothing wrong with that. And why are you so concerned about other people's money? Focus on yours.
