Tennessee Takeover feat. 8 Ball and MJG, City Paper Slimm Body, Maal the Pimp, Duckomcfli & DJ Sirswift

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Oh shit and oh damn, Memphis rap legends 8 Ball and MJG are coming to town! It’s crazy to think that their classic breakout Comin’ Out Hard — one of the pioneering albums that really staked out Southern rap as the sound to watch at the tail end of the 20th century — turns 20 this year. We would say that the music sounds fresh and timeless, but the reality is this: It sounds exactly like ’90s Southern hip-hop, which we might argue is the zenith of modern music. Yes, the duo would add more polish over the years, and they would go on to bigger things — COH was their last album that didn’t chart — but the grimy synth-funk and drawled-out flows of those early albums have an unrivaled rawness that stands as some of the finest in all of rap
