Three 6 Mafia settles injured fan's lawsuit
Three 6 Mafia has settled a lawsuit by a suburban Pittsburgh teenager who claimed he was severely beaten at a concert when fans followed lyrics of the song "Let's Start A Riot."
Ramone Williams of McKeesport, Pa., got the financial settlement last month, but details were sealed. Williams, who was 19 at the time, said he got into a now-defunct club in August 2003 and became uneasy when the song began. Before it was over, Williams alleged, he was thrown to the floor, hit with a chair, stomped on and kicked in the face. His injuries included a fractured jaw.
Williams previously won a default judgment against the club.
Three 6 Mafia, of Memphis, Tenn., won an Oscar this year for the song "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp."
