Three 6 Mafia (Won)

An appropriate musical complement to the 2005 film Hustle & Flow, “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” brought Three 6 Mafia to the limelight when the song won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2006. It was just the second time a rap song had won an award, and the Memphis natives performed the hit live that night.
