21 Famous Singers Who Won An Academy Award
Three 6 Mafia
A very special rap group made history in 2006 when they became the first hip-hop/rap group to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song. They were also the first rap group ever to perform at the ceremony. Three 6 Mafia got their Oscar for the song “It’s Hard out Here for a Pimp,” which was a theme song for the movie Hustle & Flow. In the film, the song was performed by actors Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, while another version was recorded by Three 6 Mafia and Paula Campbell.
