Lord Infamous, founding member of Three 6 Mafia, died from a heart attack on Friday evening (Dec. 20). He was 40 years old.

So far there is no word on why he passed away so young from an apparent cardiac arrest.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), the rapper (real name: Ricky Dunigan) passed away during a visit to his mother's Memphis home.  He allegedly went to sleep at the kitchen table and his mother returned several hours later to find him dead.

"He passed away in his sleep from a heart attack," his half-brother/Three 6 Mafia member, DJ Paul, told THR. "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.

"He'll be remembered as a legend, everybody knew him as a legend, an icon," he continued. "This year was going to make our 24th year in rapping together. His music, our music that we made together, was truly before its time.”
