Three 6 Mafia

May the faint of heart stay at home when the Academy-Award-winning, multi-platinum legends in Three 6 Mafia take over Casselman's this Friday. The crew — now consisting of original members Juicy J and DJ Paul — is known for crass Dirty South bounce rap and inflammatory lyrics. Originally hailing from Tennessee, Three 6 Mafia helped usher in the acceptance of Southern rap starting with its debut album, Mystic Stylez. Three 6's music, with its drug-fueled and explicitly sexual lyrics, can be an acquired taste, but it's delivered with an even hand and an admirable level of talent, and the group is considered legendary by many in the rap game.
