6ix Commandments is the first studio release[1] by American rap group Da Mafia 6ix and hosted by Trap-A-Holics. The mixtape was released on November 12, 2013 as well as a no DJ version with Two bonus tracks on iTunes and later on a physical copy on January 7, 2014.[2] A Chopped and Screwed version was released on December 17, 2013.

6ix Commandments features guest appearances from Yelawolf, Lil Wyte, The Outlawz, Space Ghost Purrp, Krayzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, 8Ball & MJG, Kokoe, Point Blank, J-Grxxn, Locodunit, Kingpin Skinny Pimp, La Chat and surprise guest appearances from Juicy J & Project Pat who were noted as "& More" on the tracklist.

Background

DJ Paul and Lord Infamous were in the process of rebirthing the Come With Me 2 Hell series when Lord Infamous decided that it would be better to try and reunite the old Three 6 Mafia instead. Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca & Crunchy Black joined Paul and Infamous and reformed the old group under the new name Da Mafia 6ix. DJ Paul stated that he felt like it was a reunion, despite the absence of Juicy J. He thought of it rather as a whole new project, separate from Three 6 Mafia and decided to give the group a new name out of respect for Juicy J and to avoid potential complications involving the use of the Three 6 Mafia name without the approval of Juicy J and Columbia Records.[3]

The mixtape was originally going to be called "Ressurlation", which was a meshing of the words Resurrection and Revelation, but was changed to "6ix Commandments" instead.[4] The mixtape was deemed by DJ Paul a "sampler" for the upcoming album Watch What U Wish... by Da Mafia 6ix, which was scheduled to be released in 2014.
