[SOHH highlights a hot record each week and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Freddie Foxxx turned up his "Mics" last week, Memphis rap veteran Eightball breaks down his new "Good Girl, Bad Girl."]
I actually wrote "Good Girl, Bad Girl" a little while ago. I would say a few months ago, maybe, to another track but when I heard Red's beat? Red is actually in our band that goes on the road with us. He's actually the son of the bass player in our band. He's a talented, young dude and he gives us a lot of beats.
When I heard his beat, I was going over some stuff that might sound good over them and that "Good Girl, Bad Girl" just kind of flowed to that beat. I thought it over again and here we are. You feel me?
I think every girl in the world is a good girl and a bad girl. You know what I mean? They want to be a good girl at the times when it's appropriate, and guys like to bring the bad girl out of them when the time's appropriate. You feel me? I think every girl in the world is a good girl and a bad girl. You just got to catch them when they're being a bad girl.
It's that story of a girl that everybody knows. I'm sure that everybody in the world has met some woman at church, school or wherever and feels like she's one way and then when you're alone, having had a few drinks or in a different atmosphere, she becomes another person. I think people can relate to that, men and women.
We just shot the music video so I'm sure it's going to be on a video screen near you pretty soon.
One of the pioneers of Southern rap, Eightball & MJG, emerged from Memphis, Tennessee in the early '90s and, aligned with the Houston, Texas-based independent label Suave Records, quickly garnering a tremendous regional following while proving highly influential to a generation of aspiring, independent-minded rap artists and entrepreneurs.
