Gangsta Boo, a rapper and former member of hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia, passed away. She was 43. According to reports, Boo also known as Lola Mitchell was found dead around 4 pm on Sunday afternoon. Boo’s death was confirmed by a representative. The cause of her death has not been disclosed.
A product of the Dirty South school of hip-hop in the 1990s, Boo’s edgy raps and frank sexuality made her an energetic Memphis counterpart to Philadelphia rapper Eve, Brooklyn’s Lil Kim and Miami’s Trina. Like those female rappers, Boo’s start came with a prominent regional crew — Three 6 Mafia, founded by DJ Paul, Juicy J and Lord Infamous — with whom she recorded a few studio albums until her departure in 2002.

But, along with a prominent solo career starting with 1998’s Enquiring Minds and its signature single, Where Dem Dollas At, Boo guested on tracks with Eminem, Gucci Mane, Run the Jewels, OutKast, Lil Wayne, Blood Orange, Latto and more.
Along with recording solo albums, Boo made her mark by lending her tart raps and taut flow to other artists. In 2022, Boo appeared on Marriage Boot Camp: The Hip Hop Edition with boyfriend, Emmet Flores.
Members of the rap community took to social media to pay tribute to Boo including DJ Paul, who posted a photo of her DJing without a caption. In response to that post, fellow rappers such as 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign, Ludacris, Outkast’s Big Boi, Cypress Hill’s B-Real, and Lil Jon chimed in with their own tributes on Paul’s Instagram.
