Hip-hop stars Dj Paul and Da Mafia 6 are paying tribute to their late bandmate Lord Infamous by taking his casket with them on tour.
The rapper, real name Ricky Dunigan, suffered a fatal heart attack in December (13), at the age of 40, but DJ Paul is still struggling to come to terms with the loss of his half-brother and he is determined to keep his spirit alive onstage by keeping his casket nearby.
He 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 (merchandise)."
Lord Infamous and DJ Paul were co-founders of Three 6 Mafia and formed the spin-off group, Da Mafia 6, last year (13) with five of the original six members of the Oscar-winning group.
Da Mafia 6's Triple 6ix Tour kicks off in Memphis, Tennessee on Friday night (28Feb14).
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
