Gangsta Boo, original part of Three 6 Mafia, found dead in Memphis

Lola Mitchell, better known as Gangsta Boo, has died aged 43.  The pioneering force was part of the original core of Three 6 Mafia, but has also created success with her own solo albums, including her debut album Inquiring Minds.

She was sometimes called the “Queen of Memphis.” Other times it was ‘Lady Boo’. But most of the time, it was “Gangsta Boo,” — given her name, Lola Mitchell.

On the first day of 2023, Mitchell, 43, was found dead at a friend’s home in Memphis, according to The Commercial Appeal’s news partner WMC Action News 5, who spoke with Delmar H. Lawrence, aka Mr. Del. Lawrence was a collaborator with Three 6 Mafia — the iconic Memphis group that propelled Mitchell and others to fame.

Lawrence’s comments were among many that poured in from fellow artists who worked with Mitchell.

Mitchell’s cause of death is unknown. Her death comes just a year after Memphis was saddened by the slaying of Castilia Heights native Adolph Thornton Jr., better known as Young Dolph.
