Back in the late ’90s, at the height of putting kickers and amps through trunks, my cousin put me onto Tear Da Club Up Thugs. The music rivaled that of M.O.P and Onyx in terms of making you wanting to swing punches (that hopefully wouldn’t land). My informal introduction to Hypnotize Minds followed soon after, and it always intrigued me how by the 2000s, the Three 6 Mafia clique reduced to basically just DJ Paul and Juicy J.

Now with Juice makin’ noise with Taylor Gang and enjoying a revived solo career, and Project Pat also enjoying solo success, DJ Paul went back and put together the acts that he was associated with in the ’90s. Da Mafia 6ix as it’s known, includes Gangsta Boo, Crunchy Black, Lord Infamous, and Koopsta Nicca, all with Paul at the boards. Early work “Go Hard” lives up to its name with Hypnotized disciple Yelawolf on the guest-spot.

I wish I had my cousin’s old ’94 Ford Thunderbird with all those 15’s in the trunk today to play this madness properly.
