The hip-hop community lost a Three 6 Mafia founding member Rickey Lord Infamous” Dunigan, this past Friday due to unexpected causes. The 40-year-old rapper’s half-brother, DJ Paul, released a statement saying his speculations of what Lord Infamous could have died from. He previously had a heart attack and stroke back in 2010, and has since recovered, but it could have played a role in this recent heart attack.
“He had a heart attack in his sleep,” Paul says during an interview with HipHopDX. “His mother found him dead this morning. He had been dead, the doctors say, for about five hours. And she came home, he was sitting at the kitchen table with his head down on his arms. He had told his girlfriend that he was sleeping and he wanted to go to sleep.”

Rest in peace Lord Infamous.
