The death of Lord Infamous has come as a shock to his friends, family and fans, but it's possible the Three 6 Mafia rapper had a premonition about his own passing weeks ago. According to DJ Paul, Infamous was "talking kind of crazy a couple of weeks ago and he was like, 'I think I've got four months to live.'" He adds of his half-brother's death, "I couldn't believe it even though I was kind of preparing for it."
Paul recounts the shocking moment he found out about Infamous' death in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "They had been calling me. His family had been calling me. I think I remember, when I look back, I turned my ringer off."
"When I woke up this morning, they was telling me that this had happened," DJ Paul continued. "I didn't believe it at first, they was like, 'Ricky died,' and I'm like, 'Ricky who?' and I was like, 'Get the f--k outta here.'"
Lord Infamous died of a heart attack on Friday, it has been confirmed. The rapper suffered a heart attack and stroke in 2010.
