While Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Three Six Mafia had traded accusations of creative theft in the early Nineties, Bone started the feud in earnest by calling Memphis a “bunk-ass town” in the February 1995 issue of Vibe. Several Memphis rappers retaliated with dis tracks, but none garnered more attention than Live By Yo Rep, released in the wake of Three 6 Mafia’s debut Mystic Stylez. “Triple 6 Mafia” and “Throw Yo Setts In Da Air” are blinding examples of the Mafia’s fearsome production ethos, while Koopsta Knicca’s “Slippin’” is impressive for its pitch-perfect imitation of the Bone Thugs style. But “Live By Yo Rep” is the clear centerpiece. Every member of the Mafia posse takes a turn describing in detail how they would burn, torture, or dismember their adversaries. However, only Lord Infamous mentions the Bone members by name, and his riff gives you an idea of the level of seriousness: “See we can't tolerate no sissy that is Layzie / Broke out the blender and I made some Krayzie gravy.” The track is more an excuse to explore Three 6 Mafia’s love of splatter movie imagery than it is a crippling missive to Bone, but “Live By Yo Rep” remains one of Southern rap’s most memorable dis songs.
