Three 6 Mafia
When Queen Latifah announced the winner of the “Best Original Song” award at the 78th annual Academy Awards, she couldn’t help but chuckle with surprise. In 2006, Three 6 Mafia surprised even themselves when they became the first Hip-Hop group to win an Academy Award for ‘Best Original Song’ with the track, “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp” from the film, Hustle and Flow. Eminem first won the award in 2002 for “Lose Yourself” off the 8 Mile soundtrack, but DJ Paul and Juicy J became the first group to win and first Hip-Hop act to perform at the prestigious ceremony.
