Three 6 MafiaOscar-winning rap trio Three 6 Mafia's forthcoming gig at a Maryland university has been canceled amidst security concerns.

Officials at Towson University have pulled the Welcome Back Concert, which was set to take place on September 8, claiming one audience member was stabbed during the group's last gig in the area in 2004.

Student activities co-ordinator Bridget Chase says, "The Campus Activities Board wanted to have a big hip-hop concert early in the school year and they selected Three 6 Mafia based on which performers were available for early September.

"We went through the negotiation process and we were ready to sign a contract. When the students learned that the show wasn't going to happen, they were pretty upset because we worked to plan this and we put a good amount of time into it."

Teri Hall, associate vice president for campus, replies, "When I heard that (Three 6 Mafia) was the group scheduled to perform, I connected the group's name with the (stabbing) and I was nervous about bringing the group to campus."
