Purely out of curiosity fueled by the completely DIY album-cover I picked up the second indie release of Memphis hip-hop outfit Three-6 Mafia. Disappointed? Absolutely. Amazed that they are one of the biggest rap acts in the world right now? Absolutely. I was hoping to have found a hidden treasure before the band was influenced by a major label, instead Mystic Stylez showcases sluggish, tired horrorcore beats that haven't aged well. "Big Bizness (Screwed)" and "Break Da Law '95" are the only tracks that I can stomach. Try to enjoy.
