…but before you dig out that green skull pile shirt and swap the laces on your Phat Farm shell toes, understand that it’s really not 2005 (or 1997) any more.
FACT reported this morning that original members of the seminal Memphis act will reunite for a forthcoming album. DJ Paul rounded up the Backyard Posse like the mothafuckin Sandlot; Crunchy Blak, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous, and Gangsta Boo–who recently dropped It’s Game Involved, her first mixtape in what seems like my entire life–are all back on team Triple 6.
Notice someone missing on that roster? Sadly yes, Juicy J is apparently too busy gettin trippy with Texan frat bros, listening to Bright Eyes with The Weeknd, and generally cashing the fuck out to make time for the project. Mr. Zip and a Double Cup told DJ Big Bink, “When Columbia Records sit us down and cut that check, its going down, they cut that check, magic’s gonna happen.” Ouch. Fingers crossed Juicy J will come around and remember all fun he and Paul used to have: hosting a busted ass Biggest Loser and terrifying Ugg’d-down Super Sweet Sixtweens into guesting verses. Ah, the ol’ good days.- Lil Ugly Maneing
