So Three 6 Mafia has finally made their turn into inspirational rap with Laws of Power, or is that title just deceptive? According to Three 6 Mafia member DJ Paul, Laws of Power was picked, "because we feel Three 6 Mafia has always been known for setting trends. Songs like 'Sippin' Some Syrup,' 'Ridin' Spinners,' 'Tear Da Club Up'...always set trends and started little things. Our songs were like the law of those trends. (On this album) each song represents a different law and what we feel you need to be doing at that time."
While it's a relief to know that Three 6 Mafia hasn't gone soft, and that Laws of Power delivers the same goofy, grimy southern rap that fans of the group want, there's no indication that it's exactly the same. There's at least one track on Laws of Power that was produced by dutch DJ Tiesto and features Flo Rida and Sean Kingston. If Three 6 Mafia have succumbed to the R&Btronica that's crowded the airwaves, hopefully they haven't succumbed too hard.
