Gangsta Boo, a Southern rapper and former member of hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia, has passed away. She was 43 years old.

Lola “Gangsta Boo” Mitchell was found dead Sunday in Memphis, Tennessee, her hometown. The cause of death has not been disclosed.

Gangsta Boo immediately gained fame with his fast-paced rapping style on Three 6 Mafia’s 1995 debut album ‘Mystic Stylez’, which became a cult classic. She appeared on five of the band’s other albums, including “Chapter 2: World Domination” and the platinum selling “When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1.”

In 1998, she diversified with her first solo album, “Enquiring Minds”. The album was highlighted by “Where Dem Dollas At”, featuring Juicy J and DJ Paul.


After Three 6 Mafia released “Choices: The Album” in 2001, she left the group to focus on her solo career. She released her second album, “Both Worlds (asterisk)69”, which peaked at number 29 on the Billboard 200 chart. Her third album, Inquiring Minds II: The Soap Opera, was released in 2003.

During her career, Gangsta Boo has collaborated with popular artists including OutKast, Eminem, Gucci Mane, Lil Jon, E-40 and TI. This year she appeared on Latto’s “FTCU”, which also featured GloRilla.


Last month, Gangsta Boo said she would be releasing her fourth studio album, “The BooPrint,” this year. Last week she shot a never-before-seen video, “Imma Mack,” with producer Drumma Boy.

“Gangsta Boo was like a sister to me and told the world about me like my blood brother did,” Drumma Boy said in a statement. “We are both Leos and share the same energy for unity and making people happy! This is such a devastating loss because she always wanted to see others win! RIP to the Queen of Memphis, my sister forever.
