Shit. I wish Ball & G would ever ask me the age old: Ball & G T-Mixx Era Vs. Ball & G post 2000 era.

Hands down...T-Mixx era. What them dudes were able to do was not give me an identity--but give me a definite foundation for what rap music could be. I missed the late 80s golden era of rap, to be honest. 92-97 is my golden era. And with that said, Ball & G were the pinnacle of what that time represented.

The story-telling and lyrical wordplay were as immaculate as T's production. And can we just say for the record that T-Mixx is perhaps the most underrated producer in rap music? But that Suave House era was incomparable to me. You had some of the dopest emcees in southern rap music history--- Ball, G, Tela, Mr. Mike-- all operating on one accord, but at the same time, COMPETING against each other. ("All in My Mind") Don't get much better than that.

I haven't vibed to a Ball & G album like that since In Our Lifetime. Living Legends was okay, but other than...eh. Them dudes sound tired of rapping most of the time these days, or like they are trying to appeal to some fathom "young audience." Truth is, young people ain't really checking for them like that anyway, so they may as well stick to their core base. Not saying that the music can't grow, not by any means. Just-- you know, start enjoying the writing process more and go find T-Mixx or Slisce T.

Oh and can we also say for the record that MJG's No More Glory is severely underrated as well? Ok. I'm done...
