About 8Ball & MJG
8Ball & MJG is a duo musical group that originated back in the early 90s. The duo formally named Premro Smith and Marlon Jermaine kickstarted their career in 1991.
Both rappers had met up at the Ridgeway Middle School in Memphis, Tennessee back in 1984. Then, they started out their career with the ‘Listen to the Lyrics’ album in 1991, both artists have gone on to release more record-breaking music from singles to albums and they have stood strong, even though the 21st century. Their major album, “Comin Out Hard” was indeed powerful. And, this is because it pulled in listeners and sales for the duo.
As a team, they have both released about 8 albums in order and they have also produced their albums and singles singularly as solo artists. With multiple billboard records, the duo singers also have in their group name a net worth of about $15 million.
In 1987, two aspiring musicians, Chad Butler and Bernard Freeman came together for the UGK music group. To start with, the duo, who go by the stage name, Pimp C and Bun B respectively, both had pretty nice family backgrounds in music. So, you can say that this factor was one pushing factor for both aspirants.
While they met in 1984 and properly formed the group in ’87, both artists had already released their US Billboard 200 charter album, ‘Too Hard To Swallow’ in 1992. And, this was the period when their official label identity Jive records came in. Following this, they united by releasing other albums, numbering to about six in number. This is supported by two EPs, both equally successful in their career.
In addition, the UGK group has got in bags multiple awards. Some of these awards include Video of the Year and Best Group by the BET Awards. Also, they’ve got other awards like Legend Award, Best Group, and Best Video by the Ozone Awards. Again, there are the two nice nominations they bagged for the Grammys in 2001 and 2008.
