Three 6 Mafia's Lord Infamous has died at 40 years old.
Infamous was found dead after suffering a heart attack in his sleep.
Rolling Stone magazine reported that Rick "Lord Infamous" Dunigan was the founding member of Three 6 Mafia.
DJ Paul spoke to Rolling Stone and said that the passing of Infamous was sudden. "He was at home sitting at the table and he just lay his head down and he just left us," said Paul.
Infamous had suffered a stroke and a heart attack in 2010, but since those incidents, he had been healthy.
Fellow group member Gangsta Boo took to Twitter to break the news to the world, Billboard reported.
Rest in Peace Lord Infamous please respect the family and dear friends during this tragedy.
