Expectations are high for Three 6 Mafia following the group's massive success with the Hustle & Flow soundtrack, which earned them an Oscar for the ubiquitous hit, "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp." But the Memphis hip-hoppers are prepared to storm back into the public eye with a new album and a new reality series on MTV.
Adventures in Hollyhood premieres on MTV on Thursday, April 5th, and follows the group as they go through their "circus" of everyday life. "You see us in meetings, recording, trying to come up with songs, trying to do movie deals, even trying to pick up women," says DJ Paul.
Three 6 Mafia's new album, Last 2 Walk, was pushed back until June in order to take full advantage of the buzz they hope their TV series generates. The first single off the album, "Doe Boy Fresh," is already making noise on the hip-hop charts.
Guests on Last 2 Walk include Akon, Lil Jon, Paul Wall, Lyfe Jennings, and the Game.
