Ridin High is the seventh studio album by the American hip hop duo 8Ball & MJG. The album was released on March 13, 2007, by Bad Boy South. It was originally scheduled for July 2006, under the title Pure American Pimpin', but was eventually confirmed to be titled Ridin High. The album features guest appearances from Three 6 Mafia, Juvenile, Yung Joc, P Diddy, The Notorious B.I.G., Jazze Pha, 112, Big Pun & Project Pat. Productions will come from Jazze Pha, Sean Dre, Drumma Boy, Lil Jon, DJ Toomp and Timbaland's protégé Nate "Danja" Hills.

The first single off the album is "Relax and Take Notes", which features The Notorious B.I.G. (containing elements of "Dead Wrong" from his posthumous album Born Again) and fellow Memphian Project Pat. The second single of the album is called "Cruzin'". Following its release, the album debuted at number eight on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling 50,000 copies in its first week.[9]
