Rapper Gangsta Boo died from an accidental overdose, according to the coroner’s office in Memphis, Tennessee.

The former Three 6 Mafia member had fentanyl, cocaine, and ethanol (alcohol) in her system at the time of her death, local news stations Action News 5 and Fox 13 reported on Wednesday (June 14), after obtaining the autopsy report.

Born Lola Mitchell, Gangsta Boo was found dead at her mother’s home in Memphis on New Year’s Day. The rapper was 43 years old at the time of her death.

Following her death, the rapper’s mother Veronica Mitchell released a statement.

Born in the Whitehaven section of Memphis on Aug. 7, 1979, Gangsta Boo started rapping at the age of 14.

The pioneering Southern female MC got the attention of DJ Paul, who along with Juicy J and Lord Infamous, founded the local hip-hop collective Three 6 Mafia.

By the time she was 15, Gangsta Boo had joined the group and released “Cheefa Da Reefa,” marking her first solo track with them.

She would go on to appear on six Three 6 Mafia albums, sticking with the group until eventually embarking on a solo career.

Her debut album, Enquiring Minds, was released in 1998 and included her most popular hit, “Where Dem Dollas At?”

Just a month before her death, the rapper appeared on Latto’s “FTCU.”

She also collaborated with producer Drumma Boy on “Imma Mack,” which features Three 6 Mafia’s Crunchy Black and La Chat. The music video for the track was filmed shortly before Gangsta Boo’s death, and was released posthumously in February 2023.
