Gangsta Boothe Memphis rapper who scored a seminal hit with “Where Dem Dollas At” and was one of the most important voices in Southern hip-hop, is believed to have died.
According to Fox 13, one of her neighbors discovered her deceased under her porch. The cause of death for the rapper, born Lola Chantrelle Mitchell, is unclear.
Mitchell was the second woman to join Three 6 Mafia in the early 90s, and after leaving the group she continued to record mixtapes and appear on singles like Gucci Mane, Procurement, and more. When she was fifteen, she contributed to Three 6’s style mystical album and remained a staple in Memphis thanks to his untimely passing.
In 1998, Boo released his first album curious minds featuring “Where Dem Dollas At” which became a regional hit. In a feature highlighting the best Southern rap songs of the 1990s, writer Dylan Green wrote of the song: “Even with verses from mob founders Juicy J and DJ Paul at the end of” Where Dem Dollas At,” Gangsta Boo’s aggressive nonchalance absorbed all the attention, creating a space for women in Southern hip-hop and beyond.
Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul confirmed Mitchell’s passing on Instagram with a simple photo of her behind a pair of turntables.
