Synopsis

Amazon.com
With partner MJG, Houston-based rapper Eightball has long enjoyed modest success with a Southern grassroots hip-hop style. The release of his first solo album, Lost--a grand coming-out party featuring big-name guests, sprawled over three CDs--finds him on the verge of becoming a rap megastar. But, as is the case with many multidisc studio releases, more music does not necessarily make a better record. A canny editor could've made Lost a solid single CD, though Eightball--an average rhymer upstaged by guests like Goodie Mob and Busta Rhymes--might've been cut entirely in the process. As is, two discs give Eightball time to cover all the usual (and, frankly, mostly tired) street topics, as well as offer bits of social commentary and spirituality and still leave time for a whole bonus CD featuring tracks by friends and labelmates. --Roni Sarig

CD Reviews

Simply the best
Rod | Atlanta, GA | 10/06/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lost is another landmark album that Eightball has dropped. With his southern drawl, perfect lyrics, and graphic storytelling, this album is definitely a classic. Eightball has been putting it town for years with his equally talented partner MJG. To Amazon.com, for your statement about Eightball being upstaged by his featured guests, I definitely think you should listen again. And another thing, Eightball's rhyming skills are anything but average. Eightball has enjoyed praise by critics like The Source Magazine who have featured his lyrics as one of their famed hip hop quotables. He's simply the best."
One of my favorite albums.

"I bought this album edited by accident. I hate edited music. That just goes to show how good this album is. Eightball has got to be the best story teller I've ever heard and he's a lot like Scarface. He's one of those really tight Southern rappers who hasn't gone really big, but is putting out album after album of great music. Track 3 on the 2nd disc is about 8ball and his friends when he was growing up and how things are now. You've got to hear it. This album is 2 discs of premium rap music from a REAL rapper who doesn't base his image on radio play and platinum necklaces."
"BALL" hits us off another classic

"FatMack,Ball what ever you won't to call him,I call him the "GREATEST". Even without his boy in his corner,this heavyweight champ of the rap game, hits us with a 5 star classic.With a vocabulary deep as gumbo,he's got to be da rawest m.c. out to date.If you don't agree,just peep da album!"
