Its been 18 years, but thanks to a freestyle from Chicago’s G Herbo on Dallas radio station K104FM a couple of weeks ago (March 16), Three 6 Mafia’s stand out single, “Who Run It,” has returned to the forefront of popular culture.
Coming off of Three 6 Mafia’s fourth studio album, When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1, “Who Run It” feels like a blast from the past. The full, in-your-face sound that era strived off of is in full force and G Herbo floats on it perfectly.
After G Herbo uploaded the clip of the freestyle to his Instagram, Drake was prompted to reach out and show love.
In doing so he also encouraged the Chicago rapper to release it as a song. So he did.
Since then, it’s been a race to see who can upload their “Who Run It” freestyle first.
There’s been remixes from everyone from Young MA, Lil Uzi, A$AP Rocky and even the originator, Juicy J, remixed his own song.
Theres been many submissions, but we’ve gone through the ten best remixes and have complied a list below for you listening pleasure.
We’re all for Three 6’s legacy living on, and the younger generation has been great in paying homage.

If their Academy Award or Juicy J’s longevity hasn’t convinced you, surely their emergence in hip-hop, yet again, in 2018, will.
Three 6 Mafia is forever.
