Lola Mitchell, better known as the Memphis rapper Gangsta Boo, died on New Year’s Day.

Gangsta Boo was the second woman to join “Three 6 Mafia,” a hip-hop group based in Memphis, Tennessee. It is not known what led to her passing away.

Gangsta-related sources and their connections Tell FOX3 that it appears the death of the rapper was caused by drug overdose. We’ve been told that Gangsta spent last night in Memphis with her brother at a local performance, and that during the course of the night, her brother began to overdose and needed to be taken to the hospital as a result.

It turned out that he was fine, but our sources tell us that persons who are familiar with the scene of Gangsta Boo’s death assert that narcotics were detected on her person and that a substance that is thought to be laced with fentanyl was at play. We’ve been told that the police have opened an official investigation into the matter.

In order to determine what ultimately led to the person’s passing, it is imperative that an autopsy be performed.

The death of the hip hop star was announced by her former labelmate DJ Paul, who posted a picture of her on Instagram in what appears to be a memorial to her. Several well-known artists expressed their sorrow in the form of comments and notes. There is no documented information regarding the specifics of the events that led to her passing.

When Gangsta Boo hooked up with Paul, Juicy J, and other founder members of the rap group in the 1990s, the decade is considered to be the beginning of her career. Other original members of the rap group included Lord Infamous, Crunchy Black, and Koopsta Knicca, amongst others. As a member of T6M, Gangsta Boo was one of the only female rappers at the time, yet she managed to hold her own and carve out her own space despite being in a male-dominated environment.

Gangsta also appeared on Three 6 Mafia’s first five studio albums, including their 1995 debut, “Mystic Stylez,” as well as other notable projects like “Chapter 1,” “When the Smoke Clears,” and the “Choices” soundtrack album.

After parting ways with Three 6 in the early 2000s, Gangsta Boo went on to have a successful solo career, releasing one more solo studio album and a number of mixtapes throughout the rest of the aughts and into the 2010s. This, of course, does not include the innumerable features she has been a part of, in which she has collaborated with rap heavyweights such as Gucci Mane, Lil Jon, OutKast, E-40, T.I., The Game, and many more.

She continued to rap well into the 2020s, frequently teaming up with Killer Mike and El-P, members of the hip hop duo Run The Jewels. Additionally, Gangsta Boo was continuing his collaborations with a variety of media sources in order to release songs. These included UPROXX and others.

Gangsta Boo was a fixture in the Memphis neighborhood and music scene, and the people who lived there appear to have had a special place in their hearts for him. Recently, she was active on several social media platforms.
