Lola “Gangsta Boo” Mitchell, a Memphis-based rapper, was found dead on Sunday, as reported by NPR. The cause of death has not been disclosed. Mitchell began her career at the age of 14, when she caught the attention of DJ Paul, a founding member of Three 6 Mafia. By 15, she had joined the group, which included notable members such as DJ Paul, Juicy J, Crunchy Black, and Lord Infamous.

Gangsta Boo gained immediate notoriety with her fierce and rapid-fire rap style on Three 6 Mafia’s 1995 debut album “Mystic Stylez,” which became a cult classic. She also appeared on five more of the group’s albums, including “Chapter 2: World Domination” and the platinum-selling “When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1.

“The Mitchell family would like to thank everyone for their condolences regarding the untimely death of Lola ‘Gangsta Boo’ Mitchell,” said the rapper’s mother Veronica Mitchell and family in a statement issued Monday. “The family is asking for your continued prayers and privacy as we process the loss of our loved one.”

In 1998, Gangsta Boo made her mark on the music scene with the release of her debut solo album “Enquiring Minds.” The album included the hit song “Where Dem Dollas At,” featuring Juicy J and DJ Paul.

After Three 6 Mafia released “Choices: The Album” in 2001, Gangsta Boo decided to focus on her solo career and left the group. She followed up with the release of her second album, “Both Worlds (asterisk)69,” which reached No. 29 on the Billboard 200 chart. In 2003, she released her third album, “Enquiring Minds II: The Soap Opera.”

Throughout her career, Gangsta Boo had the opportunity to collaborate with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including OutKast, Eminem, Gucci Mane, Lil Jon, E-40, and T.I. This year, she was featured on Latto’s “FTCU” alongside GloRilla.

Last month, Gangsta Boo announced that she was working on her fourth studio album, “The BooPrint,” set to be released later this year. Just last week, she filmed the video for the unreleased song “Imma Mack,” with producer Drumma Boy.

Drumma Boy remembered Gangsta Boo as a sister and a true friend, saying in a statement, “She always wanted to see others win! RIP to the Queen Of Memphis, forever my sister.
