Memphis rap thread?
I'm just getting into this stuff, I listened to some Three 6 Mafia albums which I thought were cool, and now I'm listening to Niggas Of Destruction.
I'm using pic related to guide me, I remember there was a pastebin that had links to tons of mixtapes/albums but it doesn't exist anymore, does anyone have another way to get these obscure projects? I've found a few with plain googling.
Other than Three Six and affiliated artists (Project Pat, Lil Wyte, Fraizer Boy ect.....) I can only think of 8ball & MJG and young buck. Pretty sure Dj Paul and Juicy J each have a pretty full solo catalog as well from back in the day.
Used to listen to Memphis rap for a good 3 hours a day for maybe 6-7 months after hearing Mystic Stylez
Check out some DJ Sound, DJ Zirk, 2 low key, Tommy Wright iii, DJ Squeeky
DJ Zirk - Nuttin But The Killaz
DJ Sound - Vol 9
Lil Glock & SOG - Blow a nigga ass off
Tommy Wright iii - runnin n gunnin
Ten wanted men - Ten Wanted Men
Also good three six solo stuff:
Koopsta Knicca - Devils Playground
Lord infamous - Lord of Terror
DJ Paul & Lord Infamous - Come wit me to hell part 1 & 2
Also if you want some modern day interpretations of Memphis rap from that scene that was big like 3-5 years ago check out:
Lil Ugly Mane - Mista Thug Isolation
Lil Ugly Mane - Playaz Circle (got more of a underground tape feel)
Raider Klan - Greatest hits part 1 & 2
Spaceghostpurrp - Blvcklvnd Rvdix 66.6
That chart is fairly accurate, but there's always more from the genre if you dig deeper, like a rap group called Three Memphis Kniccas, they have the most basic af production but it sounds spooky and hard still
That chart covers a fuck tonne, just basically saying that there are so many underground Memphis tapes out there to find, jump on google and Google a few that aren't on there:
2 low key
3 Memphis Kniccas
Mack T Dog
Children of the corn
