Three 6 Mafia Rapper Koopsta Knicca Has Died From A Stroke At 40 Years Old

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadHealth


This is just awful.

On Friday, Three 6 Mafia rapper Koopsta Knicca — whose real name was Robert Phillips — sadly passed away in a Memphis hospital.

The group's rep, Dove Clark, says the 40-year-old died following complications from a stroke that he had on Sunday.

DJ Paul, another member of the group, said on Thursday that the Tennessee native was fighting for his life but confirmed on Friday to Memphis blog Commercial Appeal that he had lost his battle. He said in a statement:

"Everyone who knew Koop knew he was very funny and the coolest guy ever. He will be missed. We made classics together that will live on."

Tragically, the two had been working on projects together that were unfinished before Koopsta's untimely passing. He added:

"Me and Koop had just started writing his new album Devil's Playground 2. But we didn't get a chance to record yet. We had concerts coming up starting next month too. He also just got a home in Vegas that he was moving to on Tuesday, but never got to even see it in person."

That's so heartbreaking.

Unfortunately, he wasn't the only member of Three 6 Mafia who has recently left us. In 2013, Lord Infamous died — also at the age of 40 — after suffering from a heart attack.

Our hearts are with everyone affected by this sad loss.
