Three 6 Mafia's Lord Infamous Passes Away

Exclusive: DJ Paul's publicist confirms Lord Infamous' death after Gangsta Boo tweets about the Three 6 Mafia member's passing.

According to DJ Paul's and Da Mafia 6ix publicist Dove Clark, Three 6 Mafia member Lord Infamous passed away last night (December 20) at his mother's home in Memphis.

"He did pass away at his mothers house last night in Memphis," Clark said during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "The cause of death is unknown. We're actually trying to figure out how he died and that is all the information we currently have."

Three 6 groupmate Gangsta Boo also tweeted about the matter, calling the death a "tragedy."

"Rest in Peace Lord Infamous," she said via the social media site. "Please respect the family and dear friends during this tragedy."

Raider Klan headman SpaceGhostPurrp, who appeared on Three 6 Mafia offshoot group, Da Mafia Six's latest release, 6ix Commandments, relayed his thoughts over Twitter about Infamous' death.

"R.I.P. Uncle Lord Infamous," Purrp said. "Y'all stay blessed man #RIPUncleScarecrow."

Lord Infamous was one of the founding members of Three 6 Mafia. Along with Juicy J and DJ Paul, Infamous appeared on all of the group's early releases and would release his debut solo effort, Lord Of Terror, in 1994, which preceded the group's breakthrough independent release, 1995's Mystic Stylez. He was the younger half-brother of DJ Paul and also participated in creating 6ix Commandments, which was released last month.

We will update you with more details as they become available. Read all of the relevant tweets regarding the passing below:

    It's sad when a loved person dies. I'm sorry for all those who feel this loss and are grieving. Do you think you'll see him again? Why or why not?

    Is the timing weird? Like the paul walker death?
    • Anonymous
      First of all, I don't know what the fuck you mean by "weird" but I suppose you've kept it purposely vague so you back out when anyone calls out your idiocy. Regardless, you're critical thinking is poor. Whatever you mean by the timing being "weird", this is confirmation/selection bias. Consider how many "notable people" (famous figures, celebrities etc.) die daily. Not just the ones that are notable to you, but to other people too. Some of them, due to coincidence, will be timed "weirdly" - alongside the release of a book of theirs or movie, whatever. Some of them, won't, because it's random. But you only pick up upon the ones that happen to be weirdly timed - again, whatever the fuck that means. Can't believe I just ranted about this.

    Us ni99ers are indebted to you for the cross dressing, teaBagging, mooning and homosexual anthems and also Insane Clown Posse, Vanilla Ice, Riff Raff, Kreayshawn, Necro and NerdCore. Most of all thanks for Miley Cyrus, and V-Nasty but most of all for Eminem producing a Tupac album, hopefully one day us munkeys can return the favor by bringing our cultural influences to one of your indigenous art forms.

  • BIG BAD GUCCI
    REAL NIGGAS LIKE GUCCI GO OUT GUNNING GUCCI MANE is the realest rapper and heres why. 1) all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. 2) Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. 3)Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. 4)Nas raps about how he is a queens thug but he wasn't. 5)Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. 6)When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. GUCCI MANE KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

    Totally unexpected. I mean they JUST got back together and now tragedy strikes!

    Wasn't Lord Infamous just in the news a couple weeks ago saying that whites were guests in hip-hop? I mean rest in peace and all but the guy was extremely racist. Also I think 3 Six Mafia is not as good as Asap Mob or Pro Era. I heard their debut mixtape 'Da Mafia 6ix Commandments' and I think these guys are really biting Asap Rocky's style.
