    A mature performance over sleek, fresh production makes Life's Quest a pleasure.

    It's an LP that accurately reflects 8 Ball's place as one of the finest elder statesmen of southern rap.

    If 8Ball always seemed more moonshine than fine wine, Life's Quest suggests he can still get better with age and go down smooth when you let him mellow.

    8Ball released Life's Quest, an album that, from a distance, appeared relatively low profile but up close proves to be modest and warm in a way that feels like a surprise.

    After 20 years in hip-hop, 8Ball still wins with introspective storytelling skills and his signature Southern drawl, proving why Life's Quest is just that for 8Ball. [#254, p.88]
