8BALL AND MJG
9 p.m., Revolution. $20 adv.

You probably haven't heard them on the radio lately. They're not often featured in big magazine profiles. Or on BET or MTV. But around these parts, and probably most of the South, few rappers are held in the same esteem as Memphis' 8ball and MJG. The duo's 1993 debut on Suave House, “Comin' Out Hard,” established the model for much of Southern rap that's followed. In the 15 years that's followed, the duo has released nine more albums, lately with Bad Boy. In 2005, the group featured on Three Six Mafia's smash “Stay Fly.” In anticipation of its next release, likely due later this year, 8ball and MJG signed with T.I.'s Grand Hustle imprint. Look for more live instrumentation — you know, that space age-funk — on the forthcoming album, according to 8ball. You can read a Q&A with the rapper here. Local standouts Epiphany and Gina Gee, Suga City and g-force open the show.
