Lords of the Underground: A Guide to Underground Hip-Hop

By Hua Hsu, Contributor

"Underground" is one of those tantalizingly vague terms that's always on the verge of obsolescence until some mouthy, hungry new rapper comes along and reanimates it. Whether it was being dismissed as a fad, derided as a menace to society or ascending the pop charts, there's always been a distinct way in which hip-hop has represented its underground ethos — the long-repressed reality straight from America's cities on one hand, or a new set of… more »

They Say All Music Guide

As with practically every successive Three 6 Mafia album, Most Known Unknown is more of the same, executed a little bit better than before. That means a parade of first-rate productions by Juicy J and DJ Paul, the group’s primary members, and plenty of street-level rhymes of the most hardcore variety. “Stay Fly” stands out — not only amid the rest of the album, but amid the entire Three 6 catalog — with its propulsive intensity and crafty hook. Juicy and Paul sample an old Willie Hutch song here, and the result is striking. Sure, Three 6 has always had a knack for roof-raisers like this, going back to similarly styled anthems like “Tear da Club Up” and “Hit a Muthafucka,” but none have had such crossover potential. Features by Eightball, MJG, and Young Buck — who are also from Memphis — make the song even more dizzying, as the verses come quickly and hit hard. Nothing else on Most Known Unknown comes close to matching the excellence of “Stay Fly,” unfortunately, though there are plenty of good songs here. “Swervin’” and “When I Pull Up at the Club” are two such instances, while “Side 2 Side” shows off Juicy and Paul’s ability to import concurrent trends, in this case the “we-don’t-dance dance” of Terror Squad’s “Lean Back.” And of course, you’ll find all kinds of gratuitous profanity, sex talk, and drug references, along with over-the-top showboating aggression — everything that has come to be expected from Three 6. Clocking in at 20-plus songs in roughly 80 minutes Most Known Unknown is indeed more of the same, plus a little extra quality, so if you’re a fan, you won’t be disappointed. On the other hand, if you’re new to the group, likely introduced to them via “Stay Fly,” you should expect over-the-top hardcore Southern rap. The beats are all done in-house and are the main draw. The rapping is not bad, though what the guys lack in technique and invention, they compensate for with lyrical excess. Three 6 Mafia is the hardcore of the hardcore, and not for the faint of heart. [Midway through 2006, a few months after Three 6 won an Oscar for their contribution to the film Hustle & Flow, Columbia re-released Most Known Unknown with some bonus material. Of note are two remixes of "Side 2 Side," one featuring Kanye West, the other Bow Wow, the latter of whom seems out of place in such hardcore territory. Also, there's the addition of "Hard Out Here for a Pimp," the song that brought home the Oscar. This bonus material improves an already impressive album.] – Jason Birchmeier
