About Three 6 Mafia

Three 6 Mafia are a cultural force to be reckoned with — in addition to being cult rap stars, they taught the world to crunk, immortalized cough syrup on “Sippin’ On Some Syrup,” and won an Oscar for showing us that “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp.” They also put their hometown of Memphis on the hip-hop map – and now it looks like they may be posed for a comeback. A Three 6 Mafia concert is an intense, nasty good time, with the band’s cult following buying up tickets and packing houses, ready to slug sizzup and bump ‘n grind to all the band’s classic hits, as well as newer material, like “Lolli Lolli (Pop That Body)” and “Feel It.” It’s a fanbase the band has built up as one of the longest-running acts in hip-hop.

Back in 1995, the Mafia came out of nowhere with “Mystic Stylez,” a bloody, psychedelic album with eerie tones, harsh beats and nasty subject matter that’s still at the front of their live shows to this day. It got the band dubbed ‘horrorcore rap’ and helped pave the way for the whole Dirty South Explosion. After a string of underground hits, like “Tear da Club Up ’97,” they started gaining popularity. A couple platinum albums later, along with the mainstream hit, “Stay Fly,” the Mafia rocked the world with an explosive performance and a Best Song win at the 2006 Oscars for “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp” from “Hustle & Flow.” Since then, the group has experienced some lineup changes, and Juicy J has gone on to solo success alongside Lex Luger and Wiz Khalifa. With all members but J playing an upcoming tour under the new name Da Mafia 6iX, and J himself saying he’s up for a full-band reunion, it looks like new Three 6 Mafia hits might well be on their way.

About Yelawolf

Yelawolf, born Michael Wayne Atha in Gadsden, AL, made his major label debut with Eminem’s Shady Records (Interscope) in 2011 after building a rabid fanbase that caught the attention of critics and label execs alike. The rapper, songwriter, performer and entrepreneur has released new music relentlessly and travelled around the world performing sold out shows across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

With his faithful and ever-expanding following, Yelawolf has cultivated a global community with his lifestyle brand Slumerican. His sixth studio album Ghetto Cowboy was released via his own imprint, Slumerican Records and has included extensive touring in both the US and internationally in its support. Yelawolf released 4 projects in April, 2021 leading up to his full-length studio album titled “MudMouth” on April 30th, 2021, followed by a rock n roll album titled “Sometimes Y” which was released March 11th, 2022.
