And yet another Memphis related thread is a ghost town. It's crazy to think about all the people on here that are denying themselves music they will undoubtedly enjoy. I'll never forget listening to this album for the first time (along with Mystic Stylez) and how it absolutely blew me away. I put DJ Paul up on the Mount Rushmore of Producing (Along with Premier, Dre, and Kanye) if for no other reason than he's the most copied producer in the game. His legacy is just incredible.
Just wanna toss this here, but Paul’s (and I guess Juicy’s? It’s unclear to me how much producing he actually did) heavy use of self-sampling of himself and Three Six as a whole is a really unique and important musical innovation that you don’t really see at his level of frequency or creativity from anyone else in the game. 3-6’s ability to take a hot line from themself or one of their affiliates (Skinny Pimp in particular is responsible for many of their most iconic vocal samples) and constantly re-use and refine it over a series of tapes is incredible, and how you end up with the Now I’m High songs and 16 versions of Break da Law or however many we’re up to by now. That, paired with their trademark horror movie samples, and groundbreaking drum patterns really made for an incredibly unique sound that is finally(!) starting to get the credit it deserves. Triple Six is going to be on the canonical Mt. Rushmore alongside Pac, the NY Cats, OutKast, UGK, etc. one day. If you know you know.
