Three 6 Mafia - Stubb's - September 14, 2008

From the pop that body department... Three 6 Mafia @ Stubb's on Sept. 14th! Tix are $19! Get them here!


I'm watching "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch on PBS right now. I hate how PBS cuts out to ask people for donations. I know they need support to provide great TV like this, but there's gotta be a better way to ask for money. I mean don't interrupt great shows!

More info:

Three 6 Mafia (formerly Triple 6 Mafia) is an Oscar-Award winning American rap group originating from Memphis, Tennessee. Formed in 1991 by DJ Paul, Lord Infamous, and Juicy J, they shortly thereafter recruited fellow Memphian rappers Koopsta Knicca, Gangsta Boo, and Crunchy Black. The group also frequently collaborates with Project Pat (the brother of Juicy J) to the extent that he is often considered a group member. Their 2005 song, "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp", won Best Original Song at the 78th Academy Awards.

The group released their horrorcore debut underground album Smoked Out, Loced Out in 1994 through Prophet Entertainment, a record label they created but have since relinquished control over. Their musical style—which initially featured dark, menacing beats with equally gritty lyrics—has since moved to a more mainstream sound. Nonetheless, they have cultivated a sizeable and diverse cult following that has only increased since their Oscar win. They have recently released their ninth studio album Last 2 Walk, which hit shelves June 24, 2008.
