There was rampant joy in the FADER office the last few hours thanks to this disc pictured above - our own personal copy (well, watermarked copy, but "personal" has a nicer ring to it) of Three 6 Mafia's "Most Known Unknowns."
Single-of-the-year contender "Stay Fly" is on there in two versions: the original with Young Buck and Eightball and MJG, and the remix with Slim Thug, Trick Daddy and Project Pat (also featuring a slightly different chop of Willie Hutch's "Tell Me Why Has Our Love Turned Cold" in the looped instrumental). The Triple Six keep that sample-heavy approach to gangster walking on "Poppin My Collar" and the Lil Flip feature "Don't Cha Get Mad".
Shit, even the bonus tracks are flavor: the Moroder-y synths on "Got It For Sale", off-key singalong "Let's Plan A Robbery", and an amazing accapella outro that starts with Paul and Juicy J singing "Twelve Days Of Christmas" and continuing with a full list of all present and future Hypnotize Minds music and film releases. "Please don't fuck this album up, baby, promote this bitch!"
