DJ Paul recently opened up to HipHopDX about reuniting with former Three 6 Mafia members Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous, La’Chat and Crunchy Black under the name Da Mafia 6ix!
Paul addressed the name change by saying “Well, the first thing I want to clear up, and I cleared it up on Twitter yesterday, it’s not a Three 6 Mafia reunion [per se], because all the group members not in it—[Juicy J] is not in it—so it’s not considered a Three 6 Mafia reunion because it’s not Three 6 Mafia.”

Finally, Paul reacted to the influence of Three 6 Mafia’s “Mystic Stylez” on new artists by saying “Aw man, it feels good. But, I figured it would happen because, you know, Three 6 Mafia, we sampled or based ideas off of earlier Rap artists or earlier Soul, R&B and Rock albums that we were fans of, so of course you got some of these guys that grew up as fans of Three 6 Mafia.”
