Earlier today, we ran an article on Three 6 Mafia coming together for a reunion project that would feature some of its original members. With fans in an uproar that Juicy J wouldn’t be involved, DJ Paul has spoke to HipHopDX to set things straight on everything.

DJ Paul stresses that this isn’t a Three 6 Mafia reunion, but rather a gathering of friends he has known throughout his whole life. Since Juicy isn’t involved in the project, he doesn’t want to call it a reunion.

"I like to look at it or call it just a new project [or] group, it’s a new group, a totally new group—for the most part—and it’s a new project. Like I said, J’s not in it so it can’t be Three 6 Mafia because one of the key members not in it. So I just look at it as a new project that I’m taking on [or] a new group that just happen to be with people that I’ve known for most of my life and that I trust, so that’s why it don’t have the Three 6 Mafia name,” he said. “In actuality, it’s kind of a Three 6 Mafia reunion, but I don’t want to call it [that], I’d call it a reunion of members of the Mafia, the members who I brought in the group. These are all the people that I brought into the group, these are people that I went to school with or blood-related to. So, it’s a reunion of the members that I brought into our clique.”

Paul added that the name of the group is Da Mafia 6iX. He also says that him and Juicy speak frequently and are still on good terms.
