The Return aka Robbery Week

Three 6 Mafia, Let's Plan a Robbery

Three 6 Mafia, Sweet Robbery


Three 6 Mafia, You Scared Part II


Three 6 Mafia, Mask and Da Glock


Sorry for the extended absence and delayed start, but I am back now with a new Mac, the music collection and a crippling case of PTSD. Unfortunately, the man who robbed me did not heed my one wish, for him to post up some booty tracks and mixtape heat to keep the masses satisfied. If you can't trust the man who stole your computer, dignity and belief in humanity, who can you trust?

I hope that we can regain our readership, as it was frustrating that this had to happen just as things seemed to be rolling. Waah waah, baby want a bottle?

-Some people may remember votes being tallied in the Miami bass vs DJ Screw vs Three 6 Mafia contest to see what would be the next mp3 focus here. That will still happen, but first, this week is dedicated to songs about robbery and stick-ups, a consistent but unappreciated side of hip hop. Let's face it, it is music based on theft in the form of the sample, a music built out of other sounds. Who better to start with than the Triple 6, the Memphis greats whose tales of violence have set the bar high?

I want to dedicate the songs this week to all of the friends who have helped me get through the past three weeks. It has been a struggle since the robbery, as playing tough and trying to forget it happened only left me more shook. It wasn't until I started talking and hanging out with friends again that I was able to get back on my feet. To MC, there aren't words to say how grateful I am that she is in my life, how wonderful she is, and all sorts of other mushy stuff I will spare you from hearing. My ride or die bitch.

-Check back early and often, as I'm going to try to make up for lost time here. I hope that this Robbery Week thing isn't too dark or disturbing, but I feel like if I don't laugh about things, I won't stop crying.
