Three 6 Mafia

Biography

Three 6 Mafia is hip hop group from Memphis, Tennessee. Originally called “Backyard Posse,” the group has included many members, including Gangsta Blac, Gangsta Boo, La’ Chat, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous, Playa Fly and Crunchy Black.

The group now consists of only Juicy J and DJ Paul,who also serve as in-house producers. Project Pat is signed to their label along with Lil’ Wyte. The dark and hardcore group is famous for their gruesome lyrics with topics ranging from drug use to inciting the crowd in a nightclub to riot. They are famous for being pioneers of the crunk sound, as well as being the first rap artists from Memphis to go platinum.

In 1995, the Memphis underground rap group, then named “Triple 6 Mafia”, released its first official album, Mystic Stylez. It had recorded this album by using the profits from its highly successful underground tape Smoked Out, Loced Out. The members then changed the group’s name to “Three 6 Mafia” (or sometimes “3-6 Mafia”) and now use the Triple-6 name on the compilations of reissued tracks from their underground tapes.

They did this because radio stations supposedly refused to play the songs of a group whose name included a reference to the number 666. There are also rumors that the name was changed because of copyright reasons due to a falling out with others in the Memphis rap scene. The group has had a number of disputes with former allies, namely Playa Fly, Gangsta Blac, and Skinny Pimp.
