Three 6 Mafia Member Dies at 40
One of the founding members of rap group Three 6 Mafia has died.
Ricky “Lord Infamous” Dunigan was found in his mother’s Memphis home on Friday. He was 40 years old.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dunigan “passed away in his sleep from a heart attack,” says his half-brother and fellow Three 6 Mafia member.
“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 rapping together. His music, our music that we made together, was truly before its time.”
The group is known for songs such as “Stay Fly” and the Oscar award-winning “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.”
