Posted on Wed, Jun 21, 2006 at 4:00 AM

On Father’s Day weekend, at an event called Family Day in the Park, Memphis’ own Three Six Mafia drew a record 22,000 to the annual event in Columbus, Georgia. While “It’s Hard Out There for a Pimp” ain’t exactly a ditty some of us would associate with small-town moms, dads, and kids, fans of various ages loved rapping along to the Oscar-winning song.
