    Three 6 Mafia Founding Member Dies at 40


    Lord Infamous "passed away in his sleep from a heart attack," DJ Paul told THR.


    Lord Infamous, a founding member of rap group Three 6 Mafia, died on Friday evening. He was 40. The artist, whose birth name was Ricky Dunigan, passed away during a visit at his mother's house in Memphis.


    "He passed away in his sleep from a heart attack," his half-brother, Three 6 Mafia member DJ Paul, told The Hollywood Reporter by phone. "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."
    His mother had left the house for several hours and when she returned she found the rapper dead at the table.
    "He'll be remembered as a legend, everybody knew him as a legend, an icon," Paul told THR. "This year was going to make our twenty-fourth year in rapping together. His music, our music that we made together, was truly before its time."
    Three 6 Mafia recorded albums such as Mystic Stylez (1995) and When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1 (2000). In 2006, the group (without Lord Infamous) won an Oscar for Best Original Song for Hustle & Flow soundtrack title "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp."
    The original members of the group reformed for a reunion project, Da Mafia 6ix, that resulted in the album 6ix Commandments.
