The smoother, country side of the Dirty South

In Our Lifetime is one of the finer examples of the smoother, country side of Southern rap. It's a through and through Dirty South record, but not in the raucous, decadent crunk sense we've come to think of as “dirty” in a post-Lil'Jon world. Like the Dungeon Family and UGK, Ball & MJG get dirty like a long walk home from church on a dusty road — dirty like a hard day's work. In Our Lifetime draws on the rugged, laid back legacy of Memphis soul, and of the South as a whole.
