In a few short brush strokes, listeners get a basic understanding of what he’s trying to say, but it’s not until the entire song is revealed that the intricacies of White’s songwriting and delivery garner the attention they deserve.

YELAWOLF DROPS SECOND EP THIS MONTH SLUMAFIA IN COLLAB WITH DJ PAUL
“Three 6 Mafia was my first real rap show. Atlanta at the Atrium in 1997. I was 16 and I went by myself, and I was the only white boy in sight. Not many white boys went to real core hood shows back in the day but I fucking did. And I mobbed in the pit and became a lifelong fan. I was raised on DJ Paul’s music. I saw the gnarliest shit you could imagine in the parking lots of chitlin circuit, southern clubs all over the south. from shoot outs, fights, to stabbings. but Three 6 Mafia gave me the juice to hang. To me it was survival music and it made me fearless when I needed it for real. DJ Paul made music that spoke to my heavy metal side. The energy I got from Metallica and Slayer was the exact same. And that is Paul’s genius. And I don’t say that about artist. But no one ever in hip hop history has done what he has done and fucking continues to do. He was the first of so many fucking styles that are used and recycled today that the entire game should pay taxes to Paul every time they touch a beat machine.
