Also known as "The Scarecrow," and "The Mystical One," Lord Infamous was a long-time member of the original Triple 6 Mafia, which he co-founded with half-brother DJ Paul down in Memphis, Tennessee back in the early 1990's. Back then, him, his brother Paul and friend Juicy J, along with a collection of other local rap talent began recording underground tapes and peddling them throughout the city, becoming a regional success. Lord and his brother Paul were intensly into horrorcore music, which was their way of making their music stand out. At this stage of his career, The Scarecrow was well known for his complex, mystifying, vivid, and brutal lyrics along with his hypnotizing, tounge-twisting delivery, which complemented Paul & Juicy's bass heavy beats filled with horror-movie type background music. The Scarecrow is considered by many to be the greatest rapper ever to emerge from Memphis, is a living legend throughout the city, and to his tremendous cult following which expands world-wide. He is featured on classic underground albums such as "Come With Me to Hell" Part I and II, and "The Serial Killers," which were collaborations with his brother Paul. He also released a solo album entitled Lord Of Terror back in 1994, and has made an appearance on most everyone of Triple 6's early underground releases. The Scarecrow played a leading role in shaping the group's dark image, and helping spread the groups music by word of mouth thanks to his legendary flows. Due to legal troubles and bad personal decisions, Lord Infamous has spent the better part of Three 6 Mafia's rise to commercial fame behind bars for various offenses. However, he is rumored to make an appearance on the up-comming Three 6 Mafia album "Last 2 Walk." In the meantime, he recently released his first solo album in over 13 years, entitled "The Man, The Myth, The Legacy, in which he stays true to his dark, complex, and thought-provoking lyrics, and returns to his tounge twisting delivery, a welcome commodity among his loyal fanbase. Lord Infamous is well respected throughout his hometown and the mid-south, former Triple 6 rapper Playa Fly once referred to Scarecrow as "cooler than a fan" on a Three 6 Mafia diss track. Lord's brand of rap is quite refreshing, since his lyrics tend not to focus on materialistic topics, or boasts of how much dope he has sold, as most of todays so called "lyricists" are prone to.
schitzophrenic Scarecrow, bloody battle ax/
bash him in his cataracts, feed him to my alley rats/
yeah ho its like that, fuck you you don't like it/
shoot that trick, i need a cigarette, give me a light bitch/
(sample from verse 2 of "Murder on the Menu," featured on the Lord Infamous solo album "Lord of Terror"

- Lord Infamous
Born as Ricky Dunigan in '75, which makes him 35. He never left Three 6 Mafia. His contract with the label was breached because he'd been arrested too many times, and they couldn't have someone like that on representing their label. So with that, he became the Co-CEO of the Black Rain Ent. Label.
There's been many YouTube videos asking about who would win in a rap battle between Lord Infamous and Lil' Wayne (Who met to make a track with Lord and his group, the tear da club up thugs, called "Hypnotize/Cash Money" back in '98). Seeing as Lil' Wayne doesn't write his own shit, I'd say Lord Infamous would shit all over his bitch ass. But in real life, it remains to be seen. They have yet to reacquaint, but I hope that Lord's opinion of Lil' Wayne has changed since '98 and kicks his ass or shoots him. SOMETHING.
Every track he's been in he DESTROYS with his demonic, or at the least, violent lyrics. His verses are usually the only ones to look forward to on his label's albums. Everybody else on the label (II tone, T-rock, Mac Montese of TNT or Top notch thugs are OK, but don't have that experience like Lord displays)
No one else compares to Lord Infamous's horrorific lyrics except former fellow Three 6 Mafia member Koopsta Knicca. Rumor has it, the two will collab once again sometime in the future.
Lord Infamous has a very fitting name. He's the true King of Horrorcore rap.
Brother of DJ Paul and one of the only surviving members of Three 6 Mafia. Soon coming out with a solo album: the man, the Myth, the Legend. Status with Three 6 is currently unknown as he has not appeared on the last album.
