by: KIAH FIELDS JUNE 13, 2016On this day in Hip Hop history, infamous Memphis underground legends Three 6 Mafia release their fourth studio album When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1. Ironically peaking at #6 on the Billboard 200 chart, this project brought Three 6 Mafia that much closer to penetrating the mainstream with their unique style of horrorcore Hip Hop. To follow the theme of the previous two albums, this album’s title continues on the post-apocalyptic theme that can be translated to the groups (successful) attempt to take over the mainstream Hip Hop industry insinuating that “when the smoke clears” Three 6 Mafia will still be around standing strong.One of the attributes that sets this album apart from anything Three 6 has put out in the past is the amount of features that come with it. UGK, Insane Clown Posse, Big Gipp, Mr. Serv-On, Fiend, and Twiztid all made appearance on this project. This album also toted some of Three Six Mafia’s most popular and recognizable tracks including “Sippin’ On Some Sizzurp” and “I’m So Hi” which both grew to be staples of underground rap history.C
