Gangsta Boo – real name Lola Chantrelle Mitchell – was found dead at the age of 43 on January 1. While an official cause of death has yet to be announced, sources close to the deceased rapper tell TMZ Hip Hop that Gangsta Boo’s death scene show “narcotics were found on her person and that a fentanyl-laced substance” was involved in the rapper’s death.
Gangsta Boo joined Three 6 Mafia when she was just 15, after catching the attention of DJ Paul during a school talent show. Gangsta Boo would go on to release multiple influential rap records with the group before releasing her debut solo album ‘Enquiring Minds’ in 1998. In 2001, she left Three 6 Mafia to pursue her solo career, releasing further albums ‘Both Worlds *69’ (2001) and ‘Enquiring Minds II: The Soap Opera’ (2003).
