Biography


The glorious success of nabbing an Academy Award for their song "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" has ignited Three 6 Mafia's popularity. Being one of the headliners of the "Get Your Money Right" tour slated to begin on March 25, 2006 together with Stat Quo, Doug E. Fresh, and Obie Trice, has truly elevated this hip hop group from the underground rap collective to be a major hip-hop act in American music industry. Not only performed onstage, they also have set eyes to greet fans all over the States through a series of onscreen appearances for the rest of the month, beginning with "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" by date 7 then BET's "Rip the Runway" on date 23.

Originally emerged with the name Triple 6 Mafia, this Memphis-based group was formed in 1991 by DJ Paul or Paul Beauregard and Juicy J (born Jordan Houston in 1974) who both had produced volumes of mix tapes during their jobs as deejays on the town's club circuit. Although the lineup later was developed with the inclusion of Paul's brother named Lord Infamous, Darnell Carlton or Crunchy Black, Koopsta Knicca, and two females going under the monikers of Gangsta Boo and La Chat, the clique primarily consists of the former two members plus both founders of the group. All fixed, the troupe then began to work together enthusiastically which resulted in an underground tape of "Smoked Out Loced Out" by 1994. Released under their own label, Prophet Entertainment, the record surprisingly became a huge hit around the local scene and so prompted them to come up a year later with their first album, "Mystic Stylez", using the name of Three 6 Mafia.
