Gangsta Boo, an original member of Three 6 Mafia, tweeted earlier this morning that her friend and collaborator, Lord Infamous has died. She first replied to someone inquiring about the rapper's passing, before giving her condolences to his friends and family.

We are very much hoping that this is some kind of misunderstanding, but are following the story closely.

Update: According to DJ Paul's publicist, Dove Clark, the news is true, and Lord Infamous has indeed passed away.

"He did pass away at his mothers house last night in Memphis," he told HipHopDX. "The cause of death is unknown. We're actually trying to figure out how he died and that is all the information we currently have."
