Award-Winning Bluntedness

When Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J and DJ Paul took home an Oscar in 2006 for “It's Hard out Here for a Pimp,” from the film soundtrack Hustle & Flow, they became the first, last, and only Academy Award-winners to specialize in catchy songs about flesh-peddlers, nightclub thuggery, and hallucinatory pursuits to the bottom of a cough medicine bottle. Nearly two decades after debuting with songs like “Now I'm High, Really High,” and a dozen years since shaping the blunt end of Southern rap with “Sippin' on Some Syrup,” the group is still trafficking in wonderfully ignorant and wobbly-woozy tunes like “Money, Weed, Blow.” Expect to witness some serious intoxication when Three 6 Mafia comes to Mezzanine on Saturday, April 28.
