6ix Commandments is the first release by American rap group Da Mafia 6ix, formerly known as Three 6 Mafia and hosted by Trap-A-Holics. The mixtape was released on November 12, 2013 as well as a no DJ version with Two bonus tracks on iTunes and later on a physical copy on January 7, 2014. A Chopped and Screwed version was released on December 17, 2013.
6ix Commandments features guest appearances from Yelawolf, Lil Wyte, The Outlawz, Space Ghost Purrp, Krayzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, 8Ball & MJG, Kokoe, Point Blank, J-Grxxn, Locodunit, Kingpin Skinny Pimp, La Chat and surprise guest appearances from Juicy J & Project Pat who were noted as "& More" on the tracklist.
DJ Paul and Lord Infamous were in the process of rebirthing the Come With Me 2 Hell series when Lord Infamous decided that it would be better to reform the old Three 6 Mafia instead. Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca & Crunchy Black joined Paul and Infamous and reformed the old group under the new name Da Mafia 6iX. DJ Paul stated that he felt like it was a reunion, despite the absence of Juicy J. He thought of it rather as a whole new project and decided to give the group a new name out of respect for Juicy J.
The mixtape was originally going to be called "Ressurlation", which was a meshing of the words Resurrection and Revelation, but was changed to "6iX Commandments" instead. The mixtape is deemed by DJ Paul a sampler for the upcoming album Watch What U Wish... by Da Mafia 6iX, which was scheduled to be released in 2014.Sample credits
