Three 6 Mafia Scares Europeans!
Memphis representatives Three 6 Mafia has a new album in stores called Last 2 Walk. Their new single "Lolli, Lolli (Pop That Body)" features Project Pat (winner of one of the worst Rap Lyrics ever, according to About.com) Young D, &Superpower. The album is sure to be filled with their usual club bangers and southern slang, but it's the video of them scaring the hell outta Swedes that is in my top five! Juicy J looks a little juiced, as he chases random people who are unlucky enough to stroll past him. The Swedes do look a bit annoyed by this black guy, following them and saying the n word. Classic Three 6 material!
Pick Of The Week – Dirty Thoughts
I'm not sure where this clip is from, but it is classic. Check it out while it's online! There are 4 parts to the short documentary, which seems to be shot sometime after ODB was released from jail. The scenes of Dirt in the booth working on songs in the studio, kicking lyrics with Budda Monk working the board, and singing The Beatles are not to be missed. Check out the 2nd part of the series below!
