Three 6 Mafia Reunites For New Project, But Without Juicy J


Three 6 Mafia was once a group that had six members. The Memphis outfit often created gangster rap over dark, menacing production. Music critics once deemed them horrorcore, but their rise into the mainstream came from Most Known Unknown released in 2005. This was the album that spawned their biggest hits such as “Stay Fly,” “Poppin’ My Collar,” and “Side 2 Side.”

There have been many shifts in members over the years. The original members—Juicy J and DJ Paul—released 2008’s Last 2 Walk that brought them back to their hardcore roots. However, Triple Six Mafia were left in limbo and many fans wondered if their hiatus was permanent. Now, in an interview with AllHipHop, Gangsta Boo has confirmed her involvement of a reunion.

Boo, who just released her mixtape It’s Game Involved, says she jumped at the thought of a reunion after getting a phone call from DJ Paul. The new Three 6 Mafia—now called Da Mafia 6—will include Boo, Crunchy Black, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous and DJ Paul.

One member missing from that list is Juicy J. In our previous interview with Project Pat, he said, “As long as there is a piece of money, and a few companies have asked. They have inquired: ‘Y’all want to do anything with that? Y’all want us to push the project?’ Juicy’s like, ‘Nah, not right now.’ But, he’ll mention something in a minute.” While it may seem money is still an issue for Juicy, the trippy connoisseur has seen a resurgence of his solo career. Just from the looks of his growing popularity on his own, Juicy may be sitting this one out. Plus, we’re pretty sure Laws Of Power is shelved indefinitely.

The reunion project is set to be released through DJ Paul’s own label Scale-A-Ton Entertainment. Check out the artwork of the upcoming project.

    if they want this album to sell, it has to be unique and feature their old style. if it’s similar to when the smoke clears, this will be great.

    also, juice has no need to reunite, he’s a multi-millionaire. but he should get on a track or two for the OG fans.

    This Is A Good Article! Informative! I Myself Twitted Juice & Paul Asking What Was Going On Months Ago Because It’s Been 5 Years Since Last 2 Walk. This Article Says Their Rise To Mainstream Was The Most Known Unknowns. I Disagree With That 3 6′s Rise To Mainstream Came In 1997 When Tear Da Club Up Was Released On Chapter 2 World Domination! I’m A Big Fan Of Their Work! Especially Juicy & Pauls 2001 Run Was Incredible A lot Of Albums Released On Hypnotized Minds And A lot Of Classic Music. My Issue Is Their Potential! Although People Laughed Them Off Initially One Cannot Deny That Juicy J & DJ Paul Became Super-Producers And Honed Their Original Sound Into A lot Of Gold & Platinum Plaques. I’m A Big Southern Producer Buff And Juice & Pauls Production From Their Early Days To What It Became When They Split Was On The Level Of A Mannie Fresh, Jazze Pha, Lil Jon, Or Even Timbaland! I Am A Rapper Myself And If I Had The Chance To Have My Dream Producers On One LP Paul & Juicy J Would Be On That List In The Top 5! This Is Why I Twitted Them! It Is Very Unfortunate But They Can Still Produce On Their OWn As Lil Wayne Sported New Juice And Crazy Mike Tracks And Paul Released POI Last Year. I Hope They Read This! Paul & Juicy-You Guys Are Super Producers Together You Guys Are Some Of The Best. I Don’t Know What Happened But I Wish Yall Would Get Back Together! I Wish Yall The Best Either Way!
