DJ Paul’s Instagram account also included a Da Mafia 6ix image.
“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,” DJ Paul said to HipHopDX. “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.”
In June, DJ Paul said to HipHopDX that he and Juicy J are indeed on good terms.
“We still talk,” DJ Paul said. “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 [Juicy J’s Stay Trippy] album.”
