Da Mafia 6ix at Club Dada Showcased Everything Outsiders Hate About Rap

In case there's any confusion: Da Mafia 6ix (formerly Three 6 Mafia) are not conscious rap. Twenty-three years into the crew's storied career and it remains one of Three 6's only constants. Lineup shifts, name changes, reunions, even death haven't changed that, but just in case, on new release 6ix Commandments, co-founder DJ Paul reminds us, "This is that straight street, hood shit." Well, there you have it.
