Robert "Koopsta Knicca" Cooper Phillips passed away early this morning after suffering a massive stroke. He was 40 years old. Koopsta was hospitalized and on life support since last weekend following the stroke. His death was confirmed by Three 6 Mafia co-founder, DJ Paul to the Commercial Appeal

 Friend and former group member Juicy wrote on Instagram
"R.I.P koopsta Knicca we made history! You will be missed #mafia4life prayers up for the family."
In a statement given to the Commercial Appeal by DJ Paul, he had the following to say,
"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."
Koopsta is the second member of Three 6 Mafia to pass away prematurely in recent years. Ricky "Lord Infamous" Dunigan passed away of a heart attack in his sleep in December 2013 at the age of 40.

Information on memorial services for Mr. Phillips are still pending.
