There has been long standing debate as to why Juicy J has recused himself of what other Three 6 Mafia members are currently doing with Da Mafia 6ix. In fact, DJ Paul‘s creation of the subgroup has raised, in itself, questions revolving around Juicy J’s lack of involvement.
“[DJ Paul’s] trying to keep the Three 6 Mafia reunion situation hyped up or whatever but naw, J not going to be part of it,” he said when asked about Juicy J’s status within Da Mafia 6ix. “He saying it’s the old members. He just saying he forming a different clique. Kind of like how the Tear Da Club Up Thugs was Juicy, Paul and Lord Infamous.” Project Pat said that he, too, would probably not appear on a Three 6 Mafia reunion album.
Also during the interview, Project Pat addressed longtime rumors that Crunchy Black was kicked out of Three 6 Mafia. He replied that those rumors are false, and that he left the group because of pressures he came under while he was involved.
“Crunchy didn’t get kicked out of the group,” Pat said. “He was saying like [winning an] Oscar and all that stuff was too much pressure for him. Maybe he was going through something personal. I don’t know the full scoop on it or why he did that because to me that was a bad decision… When they won the Oscar man it was unreal. I didn’t think it was going to happen. We knew nothing about it.”
Da Mafia 6ix released their latest mixtape Hear Sum Evil earlier this year.
