Lord Infamous may have passed away last December, but that's not stopping his current group Da Mafia 6ix from taking the late rapper on the road with them. In an interview with the Toledo City Paper, Infamous' half-brother and Mafia 6ix group leader DJ Paul revealed they'll be bringing his casket on their Triple 6ix Sinners Tour. The 50-date trek begins tomorrow night (Feb. 28) in Memphis at the New Daisy Theatre. According to Paul, he had to pay a hefty fee in order to add Lord Infamous to their performance lineup.
"Gangsta Boo is going to be there, so will Crunchy Black, Koopsta Kniccaa, and a special appearance by Lord Infamous," Paul says. "We're bringing his casket out; we're bringing it to every show. I wanted him to be there. I'm that kind of guy—a weird, kinda creepy kind of guy. I had to pay a lot of money to get an extended tour trailer that would fit his casket and all of the merch."
Very creepy indeed. However, it's clear Paul is doing this not for public attention, but rather to honor his late friend, who he describes was a nice guy. "He escaped death so many times, from getting into car accidents, to run-ins with the police, to getting robbed. We used to call him the cat because he had so many lives," Paul says. "He was the nicest guy, and he really didn't care about anything except his kids."
