According to DJ Paul's and Da Mafia 6ix publicist Dove Clark, founding Three 6 Mafia member Lord Infamous passed away on December 20 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". Lord Infamous suffered a heart attack and kidney failure in 2010 but it is currently unknown if that has anything to do with his passing.
Lord Infamous was one of the founding members of Three 6 Mafia. He was praised by fans and critics for being lyrically darker than the rest of the group, with his lyrics touching on subject matters such as satanism, mass murder, suicide, and torture. He released his debut solo album Lord Of Terror in 1994. He was the younger half-brother of DJ Paul and also participated in creating 6ix Commandments, which was released last month.
