Juicy J is out conquering the world via Katy Perry features, SPIN profiles (heh), and a career-revitalizing album called Stay Trippy, so perhaps it’s time for the rest of Three 6 Mafia go out and get theirs. Techinically, “the rest of” the unpredictable Memphis crew is just DJ Paul at this point, but he’s managed to wrangle the four other previously affiliated MCs for a new project dubbed Da Mafia 6ix (though we’re tempted to write “6-ish,” since there are only five of them).
Crunchy Black, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous, and Gangsta Boo appear again as one on a forthcoming mixtape, the first taste of which can be heard below. Alabama rap star Yelawolf appears on “Go Hard,” a song with begins with some wavy sampled soul music and quickly becomes an eerie banger stuffed wall-to-wall with aggressive chant-rhymes. It’s nasty and heavy and a promising sing of what’s to come.
