"Stay Fly" is the first single from hip hop group Three 6 Mafia's 2005 album Most Known Unknown. The song peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 to become the group's biggest hit.[2] The track (which samples "Tell Me Why Has Our Love Turned Cold" by Willie Hutch) features Memphis rap group 8Ball & MJG and Young Buck, a member of G-Unit. The single helped propel Most Known Unknown to RIAA platinum status. The single itself achieved 2x Multi-Platinum (double platinum) RIAA certification status on December 11, 2006.[3]
