Living Legend and Memphis-native, 8Ball and his partner MJG are responsible for some of the best riding music ever recorded. Yessir, they came out hard and taught us all about space age pimping.
Born Premro Smith, 8Ball was raised on classic American automobiles. His solo music reflects that, with sounds born for hitting city Boulevards and lamping in parking lots. Ball's most recent effort, Premro, dropped in March. With features from Waka, Styles P, the ubiquitous 2Chainz, and executive production from Drumma Boy, the joint has all the proper elements for summer cruising. His new project, Life's Quest, which features Big K.R.I.T., Angie Stone, Slim (of 112), and 2 Chainz, is set to hit shelves July 17.
Complex caught up with 8Ball to discuss his favorite automobiles and some of the best memories he's had in classic cars and trucks.
