Description:
A color photograph of Three 6 Mafia at a photoshoot for Murder Dog magazine. From left to right are Crunchy Black, DJ Pau, and Juicy J, standing against a white background.
Black is wearing a blue jersey-style jacket and pants with orange and white stripes and white baseball cap with an NBA logo. He wears a chain necklace with large pendant, a large watch and pink ring with diamonds on his proper right hand, which makes an "m" gesture with his fingers. In the center is J Pau, wearing a Memphis Grizzlies jersey with his name on it and a brown and orange Von Dutch hat. He holds an emblem that reads [KING OF MPH]. Juicy J wears a black Kangol bucket hat, black sunglasses and a green leather-type jacket with depictions of various types of paper currency. His hands are in the pockets of the jacket. All three men look directly at the camera. An inscription on the back by Bill Adler identifies the subject and the photographer.
