The photo's broken... --Shorty114 20:20, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Need to correct[edit]

8 Ball's real name is Primrose Smith, not Premro.

Uh[edit]

The article is written like a magazine article... someone needs to fix it.

Fair use rationale for Image:Ridinhigh.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Ridinhigh.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:07, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Eightball[edit]

8ball should be referred to in this article as Eightball, not 8ball. That would require a re-name of the article though... and I don't know how much effort that would take.

2010 8Ball & MJG - From the Bottom 2 the Top[edit]

2010 "8Ball & MJG - From the Bottom 2 the Top" is 8Ball & MJG studio album released on independent record label "Real Talk Entertainment" in 2010. Why this album deleted by somebody? What's wrong?

"Real Talk Entertainment" label on Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Talk_Entertainment

This is official studio release (not bootleg, mixtape of something like this), like all others releases on this label, for example:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pimp_Tight https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doin'_It_Big https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_on_D-Block https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rehab

1) Official 8Ball & MJG website - http://www.thereal8ballandmjg.com/

You can see in discography section album "From The Bottom 2 The Top"

And their official myspace page - https://myspace.com/8ballandmjg/music/album/from-the-bottom-2-the-top-16425242

3) This album selling on Amazon and others sites (Amazon didn't selling bootlegs or other unofficial releases):

Non of those sources are reliable, if it was an official album it would have received a lot more coverage. The "From the Bottom 2 the Top" article was recently deleted because of this. I would suggest reading WP:RELIABLE. Koala15 (talk) 05:20, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

"Non of those sources are reliable"

Why do you think that official 8Ball & MJG website and official myspace page (you think 8Ball & MJG dind't know what they release?) or official label website are not reliable sources for Wikipedia? It's fully fits WP:RELIABLE

"if it was an official album it would have received a lot more coverage"

This album wouldn't received a lot more coverage because this is independent release, not on major label. Please give some proofs that this in not official release. Give some links to reliable sources where we can read about this. Or you can't give any proofs? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.182.16.44 (talk) 07:32, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Unless you have a reliable source saying this is an official album, it shouldn't be added back. Amazon, iTunes and MySpace are not reliable. The album is clearly made up of old material anyway. Koala15 (talk) 15:32, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

"Amazon, iTunes and MySpace are not reliable"

I post links not only to this sites - label and 8Ball & MJG official website too (this is 2 reliables sources for Wikipedia rules and this sources saying this is an official album).

"The album is clearly made up of old material anyway"

Proofs? And so? If album made up of remixed old material - this album can not be official or what? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.182.16.44 (talk) 19:46, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

There are literally no sources stating that this is an official album. Unofficial album's are released all the time. So unless you have a reliable source, it shouldn't be added back. None of the sources you cited are reliable. Koala15 (talk) 21:48, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

"Unofficial album's are released all the time"

But not on labels. Go to this link and read - http://www.realtalkent.com/albums/8ballmjg.htm

"Now 8Ball & MJG, along with Real Talk Entertainment, are prepared to release their 8th album “From The Bottom 2 The Top”

"None of the sources you cited are reliable"

Oficial labels sites - it's reliable sources for Wikipedia rules. If you don't agree - it's you personal opinion, not Wikipedia rules for reliable sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.182.16.44 (talk) 08:00, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
