Who knew Juggalos were such big fans of Three 6 Mafia?
Three 6 Mafia have had an undeniable impact on today’s hip hop culture and continue to be an influence despite last releasing music in 2008. The group has been on an extended hiatus since Last 2 Walk, and two of it's original members – Lord Infamous and Koopsta Knicca – have since passed away. However, the trio of Juicy J, DJ Paul and Crunchy Black will be gracing the stage with their trippy presence again this summer.
According to Crunchy Black in an interview with the Murder Master Music Show, the shows came together when “Juicy J reached out to Paul and Paul reached out to me. A lot of people want to see us three back together doing shows, so we finna do a couple shows and see if it will work out right, and then after that then we don’t know how far it might go.” Often, reunion shows like these can be the trigger that inspires artists to get back in the studio, so we can only hope for the best.
If you’re trying to catch Three 6 Mafia this summer, they’ll be playing the Gathering of the Jugglos (yes, seriously) on July 20. Crunchy Black also mentioned “following right behind that, we got some shit with Juicy J, some shows that we finna do.”
There aren’t any Juicy J shows currently scheduled for late summer, so keep it locked here for more info on the reunion.
