Sad news!

According to recent reports, on Sunday (Jan.1) rapper and former member of rap group Three 6 Mafia, Gangsta Boo, passed away at the age of 43. DJ Paul, the hip hop star’s former labelmate, confirmed her passing by posting a photo to Instagram in her memory. DJ Paul’s caption states:


Gangsta Boo, birth name Lola Mitchell, was reportedly found dead around 4 p.m. (ET) and sources say the rapper’s death appears to be drug-related. According to reports, before her death, Gangsta Boo was with her brother at a concert in Memphis. He reportedly overdosed later that night and was hospitalized. Thankfully, her brother recovered but sources at the death scene claim a fentanyl-laced substance was on Boo’s person.

Boo is remembered for being a product of the 1990s Dirty South school of hip-hop. The Memphis native’s edgy rhymes and blunt sexuality marked her as a counterpart in her hometown to female rappers such as Eve, Lil Kim & Trina. She recorded many studio albums with Three 6 Mafia — founded by DJ Paul, Juicy J, and Lord Infamous until she left the group in 2002. In 2016, Boo spoke on her time with the famed hip-hop group and said, 

“Being in Three 6 Mafia did give me a lot of confidence. I started noticing that not only am I hot, but that I’m talented… But you’d be surprised at how many m*therfuck*rs don’t know that I was in Three 6 Mafia.”

Boo began her prominent solo career in the early 2000s with her debut album “Enquiring Minds” and its signature single, “Where Dem Dollas At.”

Artists such as Eminem, Gucci Mane, Run the Jewels, OutKast, Lil Wayne, Blood Orange, and Latto featured the rapper on their projects. Yesterday (Jan. 1) Latto seemingly mourned Boo on Twitter as she wrote:

“Nah this not true man.”

Latto then followed up with another tweet with broken heart emojis and wrote:


Boo was known to be a staple in the Memphis community and music scene and she will be missed by the industry and her loved ones.
