3 6 is closer to the horrorcore type genre where you have a lot of crossover appeal to people who maybe don't usually listen to hip hop. A lot of white fans of 3 6 etc who don't follow hip hop as a whole, because of their sort of cult following.

No Limit is not a group with a dedicated cult fan base like 3 6. They were underground for a time but only locally. When they blew up, they blew up big and dominated the rap charts for a good year or 2 with dozens of high selling albums. Then they were almost immediately replaced by cash money and have languished in rich obscurity ever since.

Its not common for people to retroactively get into no limit. Not saying it can't happen but that's not their legacy. Their legacy in hip hop is impactful but actually skewed pretty negative by most people. Where as 3 6 mafia is more of a fringe group.

I love Stairway.

It’s not my favorite rock epic whatever you call it.

I like Free Bird and Styx Come Sail Away better

I love love love listening to Stairway backwards though

Great analysis. I agree completely.

I actually used to love that Styx song when I was a kid lol. Can't listen to it anymore though. I also loved Bohemian Rhapsody. I didn't know it was about him getting aids or whatever... I thought it was literally about his mom shooting him lol. I still like that one but there are other queen songs like we are the champions etc which are boring to me now cause they got so overplayed.

iah though I probably prefer certain no limit tracks to anything 3 6 ever made personally.. I would also give them more credit than no limit as far as creating a unique sound production wise.

I assume you're talking about old school Three Six (same era as No Limit). Their later stuff, like Most Known Unkown definitely had a much more polished sound.

I personally think this was the best cut Three Six ever put to tape.



As for No Limit, I think a lot of those guys (and Mia X of course) could easily go toe-to-toe with a lot of the rappers that are popular today in terms of their ability to rap. I supposed it help that their beats almost always went hard. No Limit also really mastered posse cuts as a means to cross-promote.



It's interesting when you're talking about most peoples' views on groups like Three Six, No Limit, and Cash Money retrospectively. I suppose it is unlikely you're going to see a publication like Rolling Stone or Pitchfork do glowing retrospectives on Ice Cream Man or Chopper City in the Ghetto, but I'd bet that if you were talking to big fans of the genre, there's going to be serious respect for what those guys achieved. I gotta say though, as for why Cash Money eclipsed No Limit, I think a lot of it had to with Mannie Fresh's production chops - like man, I still love this tune.

I’m gonna go with an unusual cup is “half” full optimism on this one.

Especially considering those have mostly been allocated for the elderly that’s a lot less future deaths. March should really look like a new day.

Coronavirus cases have dropped at U.S. nursing homes and other long-term care facilities over the past few weeks, offering a glimmer of hope that health officials attribute to the start of vaccinations
