Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: 8Ball & MJG
Title: Ten Toes Down
Label: Grand Hustle Records

Long time Memphis rap veterans 8Ball & MJG haven't gone anywhere - they just took a little much deserved time off after We Are the South (Greatest Hits) to contemplate what comes next. It appears they've already decided, and the next album is tentatively titled "Under the South." The Drumma Boy produced "Ten Toes Down" is the first single to leak from the album, and it's unapologetically gangsta. MJG: "See the harder I go, the harder it gets/So gutter, so grimy, like when I fit all the shit/So stanky, so funky, like back when Parliament did it/And when they play it haters get they wigs parted and splitted." Then again that shouldn't be a surprise - it's not like this duo has ever been soft. DB's beat hits all the right notes, having the heavy bottom and slightly horror movie soundtrack often featured on Three 6 Mafia tracks, and that's definitely a compliment.
