Revered Memphis duo 8ball & MJG introduced the world to a new style of rap when they emerged on the scene in the early ‘90s. Straight out of Orange Mound, a historical Memphis community, the group became synonymous for spewing pimpish, street content that mirrored the environment they came up in.

However, they took a different approach with the track “Comin’ Up” off their Gold-selling album On Top of the World. The song showcases the two Dirty South lyricists reflecting on the trials and tribulations they experienced after deciding to pursue a music career. Stream the track below.
