Three 6 Mafia may have had the most random Oscar win of all time, but they also have the distinction of being the only hip-hop group the perform at the Oscars to date. Host Jon Stewart said after they performed the song, “Martin Scorcese: 0; Three 6 Mafia: 1.” With Luda coming out to introduce them, the South finally had something to say to the Academy.
