T.I. Signs 8Ball & MJG While Beef Continues
Working with T.I. should be familiar territory for 8Ball & MJG, as they have collaborated on Living Legends' "Look at the Grillz" and "Bezzle" off of T.I.'s Trap Muzik album. Both Bad Boy and Grand Hustle are subsidiaries of the Warner Music Group.
In other T.I. related news, "Tip" may be fighting a war on both fronts. During the same birthday bash which he announced his signing of 8Ball & MJG, "The King of the South" continued his feud with D4L's Shawty Lo. The argument over Shawty Lo's claims that he is the "Real King of Bankhead" was kept to performance theatrics with Ludacris, DG Yola and Dem Franchize Boyz performing during Lo's set, while 8Ball, MJG and B.O.B. performed with T.I.
Always one to embrace beef for promotional purposes, 50 Cent has now recruited Shawty Lo to assist on the remix of "On You So Tough." The original version finds 50 taking aim at T.I. saying: "Nowadays this rap shit aint adding up/How niggas get caught with 10 machine guns, only get 12 months?
