In 1995, very few people outside the state of Tennessee had heard of Three Six Mafia, the demonic six-person collective hailing from Memphis. Their anonymity didn't last long, however, as the group was thrust into the national spotlight after unleashing their "Live By Yo Rep (Bone Dis)," a vicious attack on the hottest new group in hip-hop.

Three 6 accused Bone of stealing their occult-influenced and tongue-twisting style after discovering it via underground tapes that made their way from Memphis to Cleveland. Whether the beef was just was never determined, but this was a prime example of a lesser-known group gaining notoriety by dissing a bigger artist—a tactic used numerous times in the years to come.
