8Ball & MJG ft. Slim Thug - Life Goes On

Posted 6 years ago
Drumma Boy
Ten Toes Down

Feeling a little down? Like life just isn’t fair? Rather than blowing 12 bucks on a self-help book that isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on, why not take a listen to the insights 8Ball & MJG, along with fellow Southern vet Slim Thug, offer on this new track, Life Goes On. The latest leak off what will be their first collection of original material since ‘07, the cut finds heavyweight producer Drumma Boy serving up an understated yet street-ready synth instrumental as the Memphis natives and their Houston cohort give listeners a gritty but uplifting lyrical pep talk. The message? Hard times don’t discriminate, but whatever slings and arrows fate may send your way, you’ve got to stay strong, keep it real, and (of course) keep stacking your paper. For more words to live by from a duo who’s been around the block, grab a copy of 8Ball and MJG’s eighth full-length, Ten Toes Down, when it hits stores tomorrow via Grand Hustle/E1.
