One of the founders of rap group Three 6 Mafia has died of a possible heart attack. According to Radar Online, Lord Infamous was visiting his mother in Memphis and was found dead at the kitchen table on Friday by his mother. The rapper was only 40 years old.
His half-brother DJ Paul told the Hollywood Reporter:
He passed away in his sleep from a heart attack. He said he was tired, he wanted to sleep. He sat down at the kitchen table, put his head in his arms to lay down … to get some sleep.
DJ Paul goes on to talk about the beloved rapper saying:
He’ll be remembered as a legend, everybody knew him as a legend, an icon. This year was going to make our twenty-fourth year rapping together. His music, our music that we made together, was truly before its time.
