Could it be? A couple of Oscar winners on Numb3rs? Juicy J and DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia — the rap group who snagged an Academy Award in 2006 for the Hustle & Flow song “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” — will guest-star on the May 9 episode of the equation-obsessed CBS drama. (Sounds like a match made in alphanumeric heaven.) Juicy J (pictured, left) plays a hip-hop artist named Hunter who gets killed in a drive-by shooting after a gig at a record mogul’s birthday party; Don (Rob Morrow) and his FBI team are called in to crack the case. In case you’re wondering, Hunter and his partner-in-rhyme, Roland (DJ Paul), will be performing “Lolli Lolli (Pop That Body),” the first single from Three 6 Mafia’s new album, Last 2 Walk, which drops in June.
