Three 6 and Sixty


If you watched NBC’s new Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip Monday night, you might have seen some familiar Memphis musicians. Studio 60, created by West Wing-er Aaron Sorkin, features a fictionalized Saturday Night Live-type show. And in the pilot episode, Memphis rappers Three 6 Mafia play/are the musical guest of the variety show that the “real” show is based around. It’s very meta.

The coolest part? A couple of characters barge into Three 6’s dressing room and find it full of smoke and littered with bongs and joints.

Go here to learn more about the show or watch the premiere episode online.
