now, I'll give it 5 stars because it's the three 6 and all of these songs are bangers, the only real way to get into three 6 mafia is to buy their best cds, or at least buy the best from each disc off of itunes (which is fine, since three 6 has a few filler tracks on each album). "rainbow colors", "stomp", "live by yo rep" and many more classic three 6 songs are missing from their "greatest hits". it seems as if this wasn't meant to be a true collection of their greatest hits, but rather a compilation of their most accessible mainstream songs to complement the release of their latest cd.
all of these songs are good, but there are many more good ones, and if you really want to listen to some three 6 mafia go buy their entire collection and skip on this album.
Okay, now on to the actual music. There is a lot worth listening to in this one. Their lyrics are formulaic, but they are executed with an attention to detail not often seen in lyrics such as these. Their crunk heavy hooks are extremely catchy. All that being said, their production is amazing. I would even go so far as to say that they and Organized Noise might be southern rap's best producers ever. Their high-hat heavy drum patterns combined with a heavy 808 and eerie additional sound effects make for a very unique sound, not just rapwise but really for all music.
There were a bunch of specific songs that definitely jumped off the proverbial page at me. "Sippin' on Some Syrup" with UGK and Project Pat has an otherworldly feel that could only happen with a drug song. "Tear Da Club Up '97" is one of if not the greatest crunk song ever, outstripping most if not all of Lil' Jon's work. "Ridin' Spinners" is bouncy and has an excellent verse from Lil' Flip. "2 Way Freak" has a nice beat, catchy hook and funny lyrics. "Put Ya Signs" is another eerie club song, and "Hypnotize Cash Money" with the Cash Money crew is solid. There are a few missteps. "Slop on my Nob" is disgusting in every sense of the word, and "Late Night Tip" is annoying.
Apart from a couple missteps, this is an extremely worthwhile purchase for any rap fan. Lil' Jon maybe the King of Crunk, but Three 6 Mafia are definitely the founding fathers of this sub-genre.
