My Last Conversation with Koopsta Knicca, A Southern Hip-Hop Legend

Koop Nah

Words by Paul Meara (@PaulMeara)

The death of Koopsta Knicca seems surreal to me. It’s like reliving this feeling you had only you don’t know how to deal with it. It’s shock mixed with my journalism reaction of “well I don’t know if this is true until I have official confirmation.” It’s the feeling I got when I found out fellow Three 6 Mafia member and favorite rapper Lord Infamous passed away unexpectedly only this time we had some prior notice.

Lord’s death struck me as particularly harsh because I grew up on Three 6. His verses across instrumentals as menacing were what I walked to class with. It’s the music that secured my love of hip-hop and would eventually lead me into hip-hop journalism, which is now my hobby and unbelievably, my livelihood.

Koopsta is similar, but different. I had never spoken with Lord before his death because during the period leading up to it I guess there was never a time where I deemed it necessary (something I regret to this day). It’s different with Koop though. This past May, in what would be one of Koopsta Knicca’s last interviews alive, I spoke with him about what turned out to be a topic of interest for both of us, Three 6’s debut album Mystic Stylez.
