Three 6 Mafia Pimps: Win an Oscar, Give Financial Advice

By Debbie Schlussel
Apparently, it’s not as “Hard Out There for a Pimp” as you might have thought.
First, the Three 6 Mafia wins an Oscar for their obscene rap song. Then, they get sued for starting a riot and causing extreme violence against a concert goer. And, of course, the natural progression would be for the rappers to . . . give financial advice?
Yes, that’s right. This weekend, the Three 6 Mafia will be in my hometown giving financial advice at the Nation of Islam-tied Hip Hop Summit in Detroit.
Anyone who seeks financial advice from guys going by the names “Juicy J,” “Crunchy Black,” and “DJ Paul,” does so at his/her own risk.

Three 6 Mafia: Wall Street . . . er, Pimp Street’s Newest Financial Advisors

We wonder if these Oscar-winning lyrics will be part of their financial advice:

You know it’s hard out here for a pimp (you ain’t knowin)
When he tryin to get this money for the rent (you ain’t knowin)
For the Cadillacs and gas money spent (you ain’t knowin)
Gotta couple hoes workin on the changes for me . . . .
It’s blood sweat and tears when it come down to this shit
I’m tryin to get rich ‘fore I leave up out this bitch
I’m tryin to have thangs but it’s hard fo’ a pimp

BTW, are the Three 6 members licensed financial advisors? Just asking. Looks like Merrill Lynch doesn’t have much to worry about.

Hmmm… I wonder what the advice will be? Speculations on the rise and fall of crack commodities? Strategic positioning of hoes in the city to maximize profits? Or is it just how to conn idiot white kids into buying their filth?
Repulsed…

Blacks taking advice from financial illiterates has a parallel in the Christian community where financial idiots and crooks routinely give useless advice claiming some sort of connection to God. Bottom line: God gave us a brain to use not to absorb every piece of useless drivel out there. So the few Blacks with money will be relieved of their ill gotten gains.

The fact that the “Academy” now recognizes lyrics lifted from the walls of public bathrooms as art, is evidence of how far the popular culture has fallen. The fact that anyone would take these punks seriously for financial advice; is one more example of a “sucker being born every minute.”

Serious question, what are their qualifications for giving financial advice?
I read the article and it didn’t mention one qualification except they got lucky and sold a lot of records. Anyone who has ever seen a “Behind the Music” show knows that doesn’t qualify you as a financial whiz, in fact it seems most lose it just as quickly.
I just love those rap poses they all do, looking mean into the camera and giving the arthritic like hand signals.
