Image: 1615627 Years before their groundbreaking Oscar for “It’s
Hard Out Here For A Pimp,” Memphis’ Three 6 Mafia
were making a splash throughout the South with
self-released, hard albums for a growing legion of
street-rap fans. To anyone listening to their earlier
work today, it will come as no surprise that they
started out as a straight-up “horrorcore” group.
Chpt. 2: World Domination is the group’s third album
overall and their first on Relativity. In many ways, this
was the country’s first introduction to the crew,
centered around producers / MCs DJ Paul
and Juicy J.
The horrorcore aesthetic is never far from the surface with the crew, heard clearly on the rolling, menacing and
downright catchy “Are U Ready 4 Us” (with Michigan’s The Dayton Family), “Spill My Blood” and “Bodyparts 2”
(with guests including Memphis affiliate Project Pat).
“Tear Da Club Up ‘97” was one of the album’s singles, and it resonates in Southern clubs to this day. “Late Nite
Tip,” another single, has similar resonance among fans, showing a more serious side to the group’s lyricism.
“Who Got Dem 9s” (with Project Pat) and the sex-fueled chatter on “Watcha Do” and “Neighborhood Hoe” show
that they have range, even if it’s not what their neighborhood preacher might want to hear (or at least cop to it
in public).
The group was still on the rise in 1997 when this southern classic hit, and had even bigger things ahead of
them. But 20 years ago they also had the template in place to create a sound that would still rock fans and
shake car rims to this day.
