Tripple Six Mafia

Tagged as:
Three 6 Mafia¬†(formerly known as¬†Triple Six Mafia) was an American¬†hip hop¬†group formed in 1991 in¬†Memphis, Tennessee. Their style has been variously described as¬†Southern hip hop,¬†crunk,¬†hardcore rap,¬†horrorcore¬†and¬†gangsta rap. In 2006 the group won the¬†Academy Award for Best Original Song¬†at the¬†78th Academy Awards¬†for their song "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp" from the movie¬†Hustle & Flow. The group released their debut album¬†Mystic Stylez¬†in 1995 through¬†Prophet Entertainment, a record label they co-created but later relinquished control of in favor of a new label that they also created but had full ownership and control of,¬†Hypnotize Minds. Their musical style‚ÄĒwhich initially featured dark, menacing beats with equally gritty lyrics‚ÄĒgradually moved to a less dark style. Two of their albums are¬†RIAA-certified¬†Platinum:¬†When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1¬†(2000) and¬†Most Known Unknown¬†(2005), the latter featured their well-known single "Stay Fly", which itself achieved 2x Multi-Platinum (Double Platinum) RIAA certification status. The group's final studio album,¬†Last 2 Walk, was released in 2008. The group last recorded in 2012. Three 6 Mafia's worldwide album sales stand at 5.5 million as of 2016.[1]¬†The group is widely considered as being the main influence of early horrorcore, "crunk" music of the 2000s, and the sound of modern underground hip-hop.
