Wiz Khalifa's 25 Favorite Rap Albums

#13. Three 6 Mafia, Da Unbreakables (2003)

Favorite song: "Testin' My Gangsta"

Wiz Khalifa: “I’ve been listening to Three 6 Mafia since like ‘97 when they did the whole ‘Tear Da Club Up’ thing. I was always a big Three 6 Mafia fan and they were getting a lot of crossover, mainstream success at that point. So it was good to see them drop that and people finally knew who they were. They had did “Sippin’ On Some Syrup” with UGK and around that time UGK had did a song with Jay-Z, so everybody was kind of catching on to that whole movement. And in Pittsburgh we had been big Three 6 Mafia fans for a while, so it was good to see them.

“I just remember riding around a lot with my cousin. He used to play it a lot, and we’d hear it in his truck. I wanted to do some of the things he was doing. You know how you want to be like your cousin—you want to listen to the music they listen to, you want to drive the car that they drive."
