If it’s any group from the 90’s that kept the clubs, schools, and cars bumping, it will have to be Three 6 Mafia. Known for their dark, eerie tracks driven by bass-heavy beats and haunting sounds, the group brought a different sound during that time that kept everybody getting Krunk or smoking marijuana to their songs.
All 6 members: Crunchy Black, Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca, DJ Paul, Juicy J, and Lord infamous are all from Memphis Tennessee. All Three 6 Mafia beats went hard, every verse hit your brain bringing that sugar rush to your body making you feel freaking awesome and insane.
After several years of establishing their career, the team decides to expand their brand by putting out solo albums, compilations and bringing out other affiliates such as: Project Pat, Al Kapone, La Chat, Lil Wyte, T-Rock, Killa Klan Kaze, Playa Fly and Indo G.The streets were definitely watching and listening; 3 6 Mafia was everywhere.
In 2006, Krunchy Blak left the group saying that he wanted to create a solo album that DJ Paul and Juicy J put off for years. With just the two producers, DJ Paul and Juicy J had their reality show, “Adventures in Hollywood”, and have appeared in other TV shows.
Academy Award-winning rap group Three 6 Mafia made a huge step when DJ Paul won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “It’s Hard out Here for a Pimp” from the movie “Hustle and Flow”.
Paul Beauregard aka DJ Paul is one of the best DJ-producers on the south side of Memphis. At the beginning, he and his older half brother Lord Infamous released self-recorded tapes in their neighborhood, school, and local shops. Putting out the first tape, “Portrait of a Serial Killa” and other mixtapes, DJ Paul met up with Juicy J and formed The Backyard Po, which later changed to Triple 6 Mafia.
As you can see, DJ Paul and Juicy J was the core of 3 6 Mafia. In 2012, he has his own BBQ shop in Memphis and his new album, “For I Have Sinned” will be release April 19, 2012. Everything in this album is produced by him. The first single entitled, “Smokin’ & Fuckin” has a tune of “Come Go with Me” by Teddy Pendergrass.
