Lawrence Walker, the father of OutKast’s Andre 3000, passed away from a heart attack Wednesday (Feb. 12).

The Chicago Defender reports that Walker was chopping wood outside of his home for his fireplace, after he lost power due to the ice storm in Atlanta.

The rapper also lost his mother, Sharon Benjamin-Hodo, last May. At 58, she died of what appeared to be natural causes. Unfortunately, she passed away on her son’s 38th birthday, at her home in the Clayton County community of Rex in Georgia.

Our deepest condolences go out to Andre 3000 and his family.
