8Ball & MJG – Comin Out Hard + On The Outside Looking In [Albums]

Posted on February 27, 2015 by


The albums that started it all make their digital debut. Announcing the first ever digital release of two classic 8Ball & MJGalbums; “Comin Out Hard” and “On The Outside Looking In”  featuring the classic tracks “Mr. Big”, “Armed Robbery” and “Lay It Down” plus 3 unreleased bonus tracks mixed by the legendary DJ Screw.

Even HARDER on digital, 8Ball and MJG’s “Comin Out Hard and “On The Outside Looking In albums managed to hide from digital distribution even longer than the Beatles.

It’s been more than 20 years since the original releases on CD and cassette and only now are they making their way to digital stores worldwide thanks in part to SoSouth Music Distribution LLC via Ingrooves.
These classic underground albums helped pave a road that was little more than a footpath in 1993, before the term “Dirty South” existed. They helped legitimize a genre, launched an enduring record label (Suave House) and catapulted Premro Smith (8Ball) and Marlon Goodwin (MJG) into a space held by few of the early Southern rappers “lasting NATIONAL success”. The duo and these albums are iconic, influencing many of today’s hottest rappers.

“I believe they are living legends,” rapper Yo Gotti tells the Memphis Flyer. “That’s that Memphis fly playa pimp shit, that cognac – smooth, real smooth,” says Rick Ross (Rolling Stone).
