Mike Will Made-It Responds to Gangsta Boo Saying Rappers Steal from Three 6 Mafia

By Daryl Nelson

Last week, Gangsta Boo accused some of today's rappers of stealing from Three 6 Mafia's sound.

This was right around the time people on social media were pointing out the new G-Eazy's cut "No Limit"  and the not-so-new ASAP Ferg track "Plain Jane" borrowed flows from Tear Da Club Up Thugs' "Slob On My Knob." Tear Da Club Up Thugs was a group made up of Three 6 Mafia members Juicy J, DJ Paul and Lord Infamous.

Then on Sunday, Gangsta Boo referenced Cardi B, who's also on G-Eazy's "No Limit" and gave her some props. Boo also seemed surprised that her tweet caused such a big stir.

Afterward, producer Mike Will Made-It -- who wasn't involved with "No Limit" or "Plain Jane" -- jumped into the conversation and said if he borrows anything from the Memphis group it's only to pay homage.

   

Gangsta Boo then explained she wasn't talking about Mike. Based on their exchange, there isn't any bad blood between them.

  

What are your thoughts? Do you think a lot of today's rappers and producers are just recycling old ideas or are they coming up with their own stuff?
