G-Eazy’s “No Limit” is currently at the No. 10 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart while ASAP Ferg’s “Plain Jane” occupies the No. 46 spot. To hear pioneering Three 6 Mafia member Gangsta Boo tell it, both artists owe a debt of gratitude to the sound she and the rest of the Memphis collective popularized during the ’90s and early aughts.
“Stop stealing old 3 6 Mafia songs!!!!” Boo wrote in a tweet dated December 23. “Come up with your own music you stupid ass clowns.”
Other listeners have pointed out that Cardi B's verse on “No Limit” and ASAP Ferg's “Plain Jane” carry flows similar to Tear Da Club Up Thugs’ “Slob On My Knob.” Tear Da Club Up Thugs was a Three 6 Mafia offshoot consisting of of founding Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul, Juicy J and Lord Infamous.
After pointing out the similarities, Gangsta Boo made sure to shout out Cardi B and shrug off having to “ruffle so many online feathers” in a reply Sunday.
It’s not the first time Boo has schooled listeners on Three 6 Mafia’s influence, as both she and 2 Chainz have rightly credited what people were calling the “Migos flow” of rhyming in triplets to late Three 6 Mafia member Lord Infamous.
For those keeping score at home, G-Eazy did include Juicy J on the “No Limit” remix. And a cursory glance at the production credits of Ferg’s “Plain Jane” confirms DJ Paul and Juicy J were both credited for a sample of “Slob On My Knob.”
