Three 6 Mafia

Last 2 Walk (Hypnotize Minds/Columbia)

The Oscar-winning "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" catapulted Three 6 Mafia from hip-hop's Most Known Unknown to another million-dollar Memphis collective. Three years and one Crunchy Black exit later, DJ Paul and Juicy J stand as Three 6's Last 2 Walk. Their ninth LP puts the two in a lyrical lowrider, short on gas, lost, and "high like Tony Montana" ("Weed, Blow, Pills"). Save for Lyfe Jennings' refreshing cues on "Hood Star," there's nothing original about Last. Tired cameos, Akon's worn-out contribution on "That's Right," and Unk dropping a forgettable verse to close "I'd Rather" (featuring the abysmal hook, "I love having sex, but I'd rather get some head") do little to mask the uninspired beats J and Paul toss into "Corner Man" and the Zombie Nation-sampled "I Got." It's a long, uneventful journey for these Last 2 Walk.
