Win tickets to Three 6 Mafia's Halloween concert at 688

While their Oscar-winning original song, "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp," for the 2005 film Hustle & Flow served as Hollywood's intro to Three 6 Mafia, the Memphis hard heads have been raising hell for years. "Tear Da Club Up," anyone?

But their 2000 single "Sippin On Some Sizzurp" feat. UGK is still the shit — not only for the tripped-out way it samples Marvin Gaye's "Is That Enough" from his Hear, My Dear album, but also for the vocal sample from Triple 6 affiliate Project Pat that gave the hook its syrupy flow.

(I used to get into arguments with closed-minded folk about Pat having the most underrated flow in hip-hop until I felt vindicated a few years ago after attending a book signing for renowned spoken word/afro-punk artist Saul Williams where he pretty much said the same thing while discussing the unheralded merits of Southern rap. But that's a whole ’nother blog post.)

For a pair of tickets to Sunday night's Three 6 concert at 688 Club on Spring St. — featuring Project Pat, Lil Wyte, Tom P and Jamie Drastik — name the original song that Project Pat's "sippin on some sizzurp" line was sampled from.

First come, first served.
