Eight years ago, Three 6 Mafia rose from being cult favorites to becoming the biggest crew in the game. Juicy J and DJ Paul released “Stay Fly” late in the summer of 2005 and it became one of their biggest hits. Three 6 Mafia took their run into 2006 and they ended up winning an Academy Award, which they boasted about.
It has been five years since Three 6 Mafia released a new album. Now, Juicy J has gone solo and has two major hits of his own out.
