From its humble beginnings handing out CDs from the trunks of their cars, to winning an Oscar in 2006, Three 6 Mafia has seen the gamut during its 20 years as a hip-hop band.

The hip-hop group and guests will perform at 8 p.m. Monday, April 7, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St.

Advance tickets cost $22 and are available at Mesa Theater, Seeds of Revolution and Rhema Music & Clothing Co. Tickets cost $25 the day of the show.

DJ Paul and Juicy “J” formed Three 6 Mafia in Memphis, Tenn., in the early ‘90s and have released numerous albums over the years with songs featured in films and television shows.

“Perhaps most impressively, though, Three 6 Mafia is the only rap group to win an Oscar and perform at the prestigious award ceremony,” says the duo’s bio at

Three 6 Mafia won an Oscar for Best Original Song, “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp,” from the film “Hustle & Flow,” at the 78th annual Academy Awards in 2006,

With lyrics that promote drinking and partying, guns and cars, the duo seeks also to explore life’s humor in its songs.

“We have gangster music, but it’s always had some humor in it. When you’re in the hood, there’s probably more funny stuff that goes on than gangster stuff. People in the hood are funny as hell,” says Juicy “J” in the duo’s bio.

Guests Ekoh, The Middle Men, Luie Lux and HeAdChAnG3 will open the Mesa Theater and Lounge show.
