PITTSBURGH, March 17 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning rap group Three 6 Mafia is being sued for allegedly inciting a Pittsburgh nightclub fight that seriously injured an underage patron.

Ramone Williams, 19, was beaten in the 2003 riot at the now-defunct Rock Jungle Night Club, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

Williams' lawsuit against the trio, its individual members and the nightclub claims the audience turned violent as the group performed "Let's Start a Riot."

Williams said he was thrown to the floor, hit with a chair and stomped in the face, leaving him with a fractured jaw among other injuries.

In addition to charging the group with inciting the crowd, Williams charges the club was negligent by letting them perform the song and for letting him into the establishment even though he was not legally old enough to be there.

A trial date has not been set but the group members are expected to give their depositions by the end of next month.

Three 6 Mafia won the best original song Oscar for "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" from the film "Hustle & Flow."
