Lord Infamous

Biography

Ricky Dunigan (born November 17, 1975), better known by his stage name Lord Infamous, is a rapper from Memphis, TN. He is best known as co-founder of the Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia. He is also the half brother of Three 6 Mafia member DJ Paul. He is also considered by fans and critics alike as being the more darker member of the group, with his lyrics touching on occult subject matters such as satanism, mass murder, suicide, and torture. Lord Infamous started his music career in the early 1990’s with younger half-brother DJ Paul. They were fairly popular in the south Memphis area and released self-recorded tapes in their neighborhood, school, and local shops. Their first known tape entitled “Portrait Of A Serial Killa”, was released in 1992.

In 1993 Lord Infamous and DJ Paul met up with fellow north Memphis rapper and producer Juicy J. These three along with a few other local rappers formed a group initially called “The Backyard Posse”, which later went on the be known as “Triple 6 Mafia”. The first record deal for the group was with Nick Scarfo and Prophet Posse. Under the label they released their first underground album, “Smoked Out Loced Out” in 1994. At the same time, Lord Infamous released his first underground solo album, “Lord of Terror”. Shortly after in 1995, the group changed its name to Three 6 Mafia and released their debut album, “Mystic Stylez”. At this time Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul and Juicy J were creating their own record company, Hypnotize Minds, which Lord Infamous became a part of. The group went on to release 4 more mainstream albums and numerous solo projects through the mid 2000’s, though during this time the group became smaller due to the departure of several artists for various reasons.

In 2006 following jail time which lead to a breach of contract with Sony, Lord Infamous was forced to end work with Three 6 Mafia. He is still on good terms with the group and was not kicked out of or left the group as many rumors had suggested. Later in 2006 Lord Infamous and long time friend and Memphis rapper II Tone created a new record company, “Black Rain Entertainment”. Shortly thereafter several other Memphis rappers such as Mac Montese and T-Rock have became involved with the company, forming what is now known as “The Club House Click”. They have since gone on to release several group albums, solo albums and EP’s, including several solo albums from Lord Infamous. Lord Infamous also teamed up with DJ Paul for Paul’s 2009 solo album, “Scale-A-Ton”. This marked the first time they had worked together since the 2003 Three 6 Mafia release of “Da Unbreakables” album. As of November 2012, Lord Infamous has a new solo album entitled “Scarecrow Tha Terrible Part 2” and Black Rain Ent/The Club House Click has a new album entitled “Land Of Da Lost“. On February 11, 2013, Lord Infamous released his eighth solo effort entitled Scarecrow Tha Terrible, Pt. Two. He released Voodoo, his final solo effort prior to his death, on October 11, 2013.

In 2013, Lord Infamous rejoined four of the original Three 6 Mafia members to form the group Da Mafia 6ix. The group released their debut mixtape 6ix Commandments on November 12, 2013, with plans to release a studio album in 2014.

On December 20, 2013, Lord Infamous died of a heart attack in his sleep at his mother’s home in Memphis, Tennessee. DJ Paul confirmed Dunigan’s death to online hip hop magazine HipHopDX, stating: “He had a heart attack in his sleep. His mother found him dead this morning. He had been dead, the doctors say, for about five hours.” Da Mafia 6ix will be bringing Lord Infamous’ casket with them on every date of the Triple 6ix Sinners concert tour.
