DJ Paul Confirms A Reunion Of Three 6 Mafia Members, With New Group Name

Exclusive: DJ Paul brings back Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous and Crunchy Black as Da Mafia 6iX. He also confirms that he is not working at all with Juicy J on "Stay Trippy."

Rumors of a full-out Three 6 Mafia reunion have been circling this week with speculation that the comeback would feature all of the Memphis, Tennessee group’s members. Speaking exclusively with HipHopDX this afternoon (June 7), founding group member DJ Paul laid out what fans can expect from the upcoming group and why they have taken on a new name.

“Well, the first thing I want to clear up, and I cleared it up on Twitter yesterday, it’s not a Three 6 Mafia reunion [per se], because all the group members not in it—[Juicy J] is not in it—so it’s not considered a Three 6 Mafia reunion because it’s not Three 6 Mafia," clarified Paul. "I like to look at it or call it just a new project [or] group, it’s a new group, a totally new group—for the most part—and it’s a new project. Like I said, J’s not in it so it can’t be Three 6 Mafia because one of the key members not in it. So I just look at it as a new project that I’m taking on [or] a new group that just happen to be with people that I’ve known for most of my life and that I trust, so that’s why it don’t have the Three 6 Mafia name. In actuality, it’s kind of a Three 6 Mafia reunion, but I don’t want to call it [that], I’d call it a reunion of members of the Mafia, the members who I brought in the group. These are all the people that I brought into the group, these are people that I went to school with or blood-related to. So, it’s a reunion of the members that I brought into our clique.”

When asked about the specific members of the new group, DJ Paul, who is back and forth between his hometown of Memphis and creating music in Hollywood, California, provided the names of all other previous Three 6 Mafia members besides his current partner and co-founder Juicy J; Paul also described the altered group name and the initial response he’s seen from fans: “Koopsta Knicca, Gangsta Boo, Lord Infamous and Crunchy [Black]. The name of the group is Da Mafia 6iX. So like I said we can’t consider it a Three 6 Mafia reunion without all the members of the [group] being in it so we’ll just say that it’s a reunion of members of the Mafia that created a totally new group called Da Mafia 6iX. [Fans] are going crazy about it on Twitter, they happy as hell, they’ve been waiting on this for years, some of these members have been gone since 2000, you know, it’s 2013.”

Given his absence in the new group, Paul also added that he has remained on good terms and is often in contact with Juicy J though they no longer collaborate musically: “We still talk. But no, I’m not on his album and we haven’t did nothing musically. But we still talk because we still own all the companies together, we still get big checks together, so we still talk business stuff but I’m not on the album.”

Da Mafia 6iX has not yet announced an official release.

Earlier this week, DJ Paul released a 20-minute documentary, Person Of Interest:

    Lord Infamous is one of the greatest ever. Combined with some of the old crew and quality production, this project should result in a great album. Good to see Boo and Koopsta involved as well. Keep grinding Paul!

  • x0004

  • Nigga creep

  • kennyken

    juicy j has to be one of the most talented, flakiest niggas i've ever heard of. Dj paul was his man, it sounds like them niggas are frenemies now.

    • Boobie

      Yes, but Project Pat and Juicy J are brothers. Why wouldn't you have your flesh and blood brother on your shit over your home boy. So, no...if they say there is no bad blood then that's what it is.

    • kennyken

      and when i say project pat is on the album, i'm talking about project pat on juicy j's new album. why in the fuck your best friend ain't on your album? Man yall niggas are stupid. or should i say you honkies are stupid?

    • kennyken

      project pat is on the album. Why isn't his man, dj paul on the album? they talk business together? man you are some dumb ass pussies. listen between the lines idiots.

    • PointAndLaugh@Kenny Ken

  • ques

    all yall gump ass niggas hyped up to NOT support the shit when it drop...what good are yall to the culture if you dont even respect the shit you claim to love?

  • Anonymous

    I don't care what they call that shit, without Juicy J that shit is wack. He's the best producer out of all of them. They got Lord Infamous back tho, so i'll give it a chance.

    • stabler420

      Have you listened to juicys solo projects compared to DJ Paul??? Juicy J sucks. Paul can at least rap decent too.

  • asher1985

    It kinda seems like DJ Paul is a little jealous, thats just my perspective. It's crazy because on the old Three 6 albums DJ Paul was like the lead rapper and Juicy J was more in the background. I was always a bigger fan of Juicy J though because he would joke around more in his rhymes. Paul was always so serious. Anyway it seems the tables have turned. I'm sure in 10 years these guys will be best friends again, but right now it is what it is.

    • Fresh2Def

      No, after Juicy shit don't sell in July they'll be buddies again. Fuck Taylor skinny pants gang.

  • #RuleTalk

    They need to let Ja Rule join the group

  • Fresh2Def

    They need to include Skinny Pimp on this.

  • jus10

    Smoking on that f'n Bin Laaaaaden. This is great news! Not really a fan of their music anymore, but it brings back memories of the old days.

    • IDK

      lol same here. Ever since I started listening to 90s east coast hip hop, I ended up seeing Three 6 Mafia as very inferior. However, they'll always be one of my favorite hip hop acts because they helped open the doors for me to discover more hip hop after I was stuck with 2000s mainstream radio shit when I was young.

    juicy j's gettin to big for his own good. his solo shit fuckin sucks. hes tryin to sellout Fuck him, lord infamous is back

    The pioneers of the current south, before No Limit, before Cash Money, 3-6 were the defining members of that southern simple, opposite of swag style. Straight southern hip hop beats, drum triplets, ppl music.

  • lordsoze

    I can't wait to hear Lord Infamous and Koopsta Knicca together again.

    more southren bullshit with no lyrical skillz

    • mouthfucka

      At least your mom has oral cock sucking skills.

    • stabler420

      If you don't think Lord Infamous or Koopsta Knicca are lyrical you must be retarded. BTW Crunchy is to 3-6 what Flavor Flav is to Public Enemy. He ain't even claiming to be a rapper. Anyway fuck you young bitches and your swag(gag) rap!!!!
