Three 6 Mafia Settles Three-Year Dispute

Posted By on Mon, Dec 4, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia has finally reached a settlement — the details of which have not been disclosed to the public — in the case of a fan who was supposedly beaten during a particularly rowdy rendition of "Let's Start a Riot" at a club in Pittsburgh in 2003. The Associated Press reported late last week that Ramone Williams was financially compensated by the rappers for the toe-up compilation of injuries that allegedly resulted from lyric-to-action-driven fans at the concert. Williams' physical damage from the incident includes a broken jaw from a foot in the face.

The rappers will now presumably tell fans not to take the song literally before performing it live.
