9 p.m. Clear Channel Metroplex. $30-$100.

It's been a good couple weeks for local fans of Memphis hip-hop legends Three 6 Mafia. Longtime affiliate Project Pat was in town last week, and now comes Juicy J, who, along with fellow Three 6 founder DJ Paul, is arguably one of the most important figures in Southern rap.

Oh yeah, he also won an Academy Award for "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp." That was crazy.

Anyways, Juicy J notched another hit with last summer's "Bandz a Make Her Dance" (feat. Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz and produced by Mike WiLL Made It) on Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang label. There's an album pending, "Stay Trippy," his third solo record. Its release date has moved around a bit, but it'll have tracks with Yelawolf, Young Jeezy and The Weeknd.

Also on this bill, fellow Memphis rapper Young Dolph along with Lil Cam, Kronic and Beatking.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
