Missed opportunity: UGK and Three 6 Mafia Were Going To Form a Supergroup
This would be'I have been amazing.
Miami, FL – Hip Hop is filled with mythical stories of the historic collaborations that will not come to fruition. The souls Of Mischief and The Pharcyde, collectively known as the Almyghty Myghty Pythons, never finished his collaboration LP. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube reunion album, Helter Skelter, was scrapped. Now, the combination of UGK and Three 6 Mafia can be added to the list.
In a preview of a clip from an upcoming episode of REVOLT TV-the Drink of Champions, Bun B, revealed the South's Hip-Hop greats were planning to form a supergroup.
"[Three 6 Mafia] 'Sippin' on [Some] Sizzurp' was the first song of a group that UGK and three Six Mafia was doing it together," Bun said hosts N. O. R. E. and DJ EFN. "We are going to be The Underground of the Mafia."
The popular ended appear on Three 6 Mafia's 2000 album When the Smoke clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1. As Bun says, his second recording was "Like a Pimp" UGK 2001 album Dirty Money.
"I don't know if a lot of people know that," Bun B, continued. "A couple of people who know that. 'Like a Pimp' [other]. 'Sippin' on Some Sizzurp' was the record of his album and the song 'Like a Pimp' was the song of our album. We made 'em Super Bowl weekend in Atlanta."
When asked why the supergroup never made a project, Bun explained that Pimp C's incarceration in 2002, prevented it from happening.
"We never got that far into it, since Pimp got locked up," Pan said. "Therefore, that even got to finish the project. And, then, back to home ... Most of the people do not know that the original version of '[Int] Player's Anthem of the era of us and Three 6 Mafia. As well as the return of us returning to the Underground of the Mafia of the music, but that version is not free."
Unfortunately, UGK and Three 6 Mafia were never able to restart its Underground Mafia plans before Pimp C died in December 2007. Listen to their existing collaborations below.
