Three 6 Mafia
Three 6 Mafia
American hip-hop group from Memphis, Tennessee.

Established 1991 in Memphis with DJ Paul (3) (Paul Beauregard), Juicy J (Jordan Houston) and Lord Infamous (Ricky Dunigan). The original name for the hip hop group was "Backyard Posse", followed shortly after by "Triple Six Mafia" and they originally did "horrorcore" music. The group formed through releasing several EP's from their own record company with Nick Scarfo, Prophet Entertainment, later launching their own label, Hypnotize Minds.

During their early career, they also propelled the careers of several other rappers. Eventually added before the release of "Mystic Stylez" were rappers Koopsta Knicca (Robert Cooper), Gangsta Boo (Lola Mitchell), and Crunchy Black (Darnell Carlton).

Evolving slowly but steadily over the years, Three 6 Mafia (whose name is a reference to the biblical number 666), began as an exploitative, horror-themed underground hardcore rap sensation yet went on to enjoy some mainstream success years later, eventually winning an Oscar and scoring some major hits.

The group's membership varied from album to album, with the one constant being the duo of Juicy J and DJ Paul (3), who are producers as well as rappers. Other notable Mafia affiliates at one time or another include Crunchy Black, Gangsta Boo, Lord Infamous, Koopsta Knicca, La' Chat, Project Pat, Killa Klan Kaze, and Indo G. The production acumen of Juicy and Paul also brought about a number of side projects including Tear Da Club Up Thugs, Hypnotize Camp Posse and Da Headbussaz, and independent label ventures; the guys initially did business as Prophet Entertainment, later as Hypnotize Minds, working out deals with Relativity Records, Loud Records, and Columbia -- all in turn.
DMX
DMX
Born Earl Simmons, 18 December 1970, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Simmons was raised from an early age by his aunt in Yonkers, New York. He took his name from the DMX digital sound machine, and developed a reputation as a DJ on the local projects. He won Source magazine's Unsigned Hype Award in January 1991, and released the promo single "Born Loser" for Columbia Records the following year. He managed to escape from Columbia's punitive contract, but little was heard from him afterwards apart from a 1994 single, "Make A Move". He made a dramatic re-entry onto the hip-hop scene with a show stopping appearance on LL Cool J's "4,3,2,1". Further cameos on Ma$e's "24 Hours To Live", the LOX's "Money, Power & Respect" and the remix of Ice Cube's "We Be Clubbin'" built up a highly marketable reputation. Newly signed to Ruff Ryders/Def Jam Records, DMX returned to recording with the powerful "Get At Me Dog" single, a US Top 40 single built around a B.T. Express guitar sample. Marketed as a return to the chaotic, raw roots of street rap, he became hip-hop's latest sensation during 1998 when his debut album, It's Dark And Hell Is Hot, entered the US Billboard album chart at number 1.

An impressive slice of east coast hardcore rap, the album centred around DMX's ferocious lyrical approach. The follow-up, Flesh Of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood, stayed at number 1 in the US for three weeks during January 1999. The album included cameo appearances from the Lox, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige ("Coming From") and Marilyn Manson ("The Omen'). After contributing to the Ruff Ryders" chart-topping Ryde Or Die Vol. 1 set, DMX quickly laid down tracks for his new album. Despite being his third release in the space of two years, ... And Then There Was X was another quality slice of hardcore rap and a welcome antidote to the bland hip-hop product still flooding the American market. The album followed its predecessors to the top of the US charts in January 2000

Trick Daddy
Young was born on September 27, 1974, at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida. His mother, Pearl Brockington of South Carolina, raised him and his ten brothers and sisters in the notorious Pork-n-Beans Projects in Liberty City. His father Charles Young was a local pimp and would take in Trick and his brother Derek "Hollywood" Harris, to live with him when he was a teenager. While he lived with his father, they began to deal crack cocaine on the streets. At 15 years old, Young was arrested for drug and firearm possession. The day he was released, Young was arrested on an attempted-murder charge for shooting a man during a street fight. He was convicted and sent to prison at 20 years old. In 1994, his brother was shot and killed while he was still incarcerated. After he was released from prison, Ted Lucas, founder of Slip-N-Slide Records, urged Young to focus on a rap career and stay out of the streets.
