This week Lawrence Burney from Vice dot com is here to talk all things Three 6 Mafia and their massive album Most Known Unknown. Lawrence is Vice’s resident expert on Three 6 Mafia and we get into the story of the group itself, what this album came to mean for both the group and the Memphis rap scene, and what the lasting legacy of Three 6 is. I learned a ton about Memphis rap, the group, and the possible presence of Satanism in their work during this convo and I loved every second of it. If you don’t know Three 6 Mafia or haven’t heard this album in awhile, I’ll link to it below so that you can dig in. Enjoy!

Give Most Known Unknown a listen.
