Though many fans and media were questioning the loyalty of the rapper and his connection to the group Three 6 Mafia and his brother, Lord tells Memphisrap.com that there's 'no love loss' for his brother, DJ Paul or the group Three 6 Mafia, just that they all have their own solo projects and their own companies to run. "I'm not seperated," Lord infamous told MemphisRap.com.
"Paul still my brother and there is some more with me & Three 6 Mafia."
Infamous also spoke on his last solo album project "The Man, The Myth, The Legacy" and answers how it was like working with the southern rap acts featured on the album like La Chat, II Tone, Memphis rapper T-Rock and others. "I go along way with them," Infamous told MemphisRap.com.
Infamous also mentioned rapper "The Game" as one of the artists he would have liked to have worked with on the album as well as artist "Young Jeezy."
Infamous goes on in the interview to touch on his own new label Black Rain Entertainment formed with longtime friend, II Tone who appeared on "The Man, The Myth, The Legacy". "We grew up together and we always been friends," stated Lord Infamous in regards to his friend, and now business partner II Tone. "So we just hooked up & made it happen," he added.
More revealed in the interview with MemphisRap.com and Lord Infamous were the rapper/CEO's new group "The Club House Click," the upcoming album with his new affiliates and the new roster of artists signed to the label Black Rain Entertainment.
And if you think the rapper born out of the streets of South Memphis that helped to solidify the underground Southern rap scene and who put the 6 in Triple '666' with his dark and hardcore lyrics that created a somewhat cult of Memphis rap fanatics worldwide is done with drugs, sex, and hardcore lyrics, then think again!
