Lord Infamous

Original Three 6 Mafia member Lord Infamous has reportedly died, according to reports and people close to the Memphis rapper. Information on the cause of the passing is sketchy at the moment, but group member Gangsta Boo took to Twitter earlier today to confirm the sad news. “Rest in Peace Lord Infamous. Please respect the family and dear friends during this tragedy,” she typed. Infamous, born, Ricky Dunigan, is the half brother of Three 6 front man DJ Paul. Along with Juicy J they formed the group The Backyard Posse in the early ’90s, which would later become Three 6 Mafia. Along with being a founding member of the platinum selling group, he has released 10 solo albums and was part of the Three 6 Mafia reboot, Da Mafia 6ix which recently released the mixtape 6ix Commandments. He reportedly suffered from a heart attack and stroke in June 2010.

Rappers took to Twitter to express their condolences to the late MC.

XXL would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Lord Infamous. RIP
