Who Werked in STUDIO 9000?

Without MJG by his side, 8 Ball links up with producerDrumma Boy for his new solo mixtape. Features include Bun B, Killer Mike, 2 Chainz and more. This year marks 8Ball & MJG's 20th anniversary in the rap game. Knowing that, it's kind of hard to fathom that one of the members of the revered Memphis rap duo hasn't ever dropped a solo mixtape throughout all these years. All that changes via 8Ball's new, Premro, his first solo mixtape. Premro is titled after 8Ball's government name, Premro Smith. The mixtape's opener, "Drought," has 8Ball ferociously setting the tone. His longtime partner in rhyme, MJG, only appears on the strong,"Showed Up." But 8Ball has plenty of good company on this mixtape, collaborating with 2 Chainz and Yung Joc on the the enthralling, "Em Down," and Waka Flocka and Yelawolf on the hard-hitting, but stirring, "Immaculate Perception." Styles P and Trae Tha Truth assist the protagonist on "Put That On Everythang," while XXL Freshman Don Trip is featured on "No Pain." This past March, 8-Ball was having songs mixed by Leslie Braithwaite at Patchwerk Studios assisted by Patchwerk engineer Michael Pratt
