Yesterday (December 21), tragic news hit the media that onetime Three 6 Mafia member, Lord Infamous has passed away. The 40 year-old Horrorcore pioneer is believed to have died in his sleep from a heart attack in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.

From the earliest days of Three 6, until 2006, when Infamous was incarcerated, he was a member of the Academy Award-winning collective led by Juicy J and DJ Paul. In the last year, Lord joined DJ Paul’s Da Mafia 6ix, which also included Crunchy Black, Koopsta Knicca, and Gangsta Boo—a tribute lineup, which did not include Juice, to the early days of Three 6.

For Heads in the know, and Heads that wanna know, Infamous appeared on “Tear Da Club Up ’97” from Chapter 2: World Domination, an album that started to get Three 6 and Hypnotize Minds mainstream recognition for their unique sound and subject matters.

Ambrosia For Heads extended condolences to Lord Infamous’ family, friends, and fans.
