Ten Toes Down features Snoop Dogg, T.I., Bun B, David Banner, Young Dro with production by Frank Nitti of Nitti Beats, Drumma Boy, David Banner, Nard & B, and Mo B. Dick.
Ever since the duo’s 1993 successful debut, “Comin’ Hard,” 8Ball & MJG have been at the forefront of the southern rap movement. They went on to release 11 albums, several of which went gold. Their 2004 Livin Legends album peaked at #3 on the Billboard Top 200.
