8 Ball Teams With Rookie MC, Devious, for New Album

8ball-devius.jpg8 Ball, one half of legendary Memphis duo 8 Ball & MJG, is linking with his young protégé, Devius, for a new collaborative album, The Rookie and the Vet. After being introduced to Devius through mutual friends, ‘Ball says he quickly recognized the young MC’s talent and the chemistry the two shared in the studio. Described as “high-octane” and “explosive,” The Rookie and the Vet serves as a vehicle to showcase that chemistry. “His style, his delivery and his voice, they remind me of a young me,” 8 Ball says. “That’s what I hear on every song we do. So, when we come together, it’s easy.” Producer Montana Traxx, who also helmed 8 Ball’s 2006 compilation Light Up the Bomb, handles the bulk of the production on the new project. The Rookie and the Vet hits stores on October 9.
