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.
