Gangsta Boo, real name Chantrelle Mitchell, the pioneering Memphis rapper and former member of iconic rap group Three 6 Mafia, has died at the age of 43.

According to Fox 13 Memphis, Gangsta Boo was found dead around 4:00 p.m. local time on Sunday afternoon (January 1) in her hometown of Memphis. While not yet confirmed, sources have indicated that there is a chance that the Hop-Hop legend died due to overdosing on a fentanyl-laced drug at a concert in Memphis.

As news of the Memphis rapper’s death began spreading online, DJ Paul posted a photo of his former Three 6 Mafia group mate on social media, which many took as confirmation of her death. Gangsta Boo joined the Oscar-winning rap group in 1994 at the tender age of 15.

In addition to DJ Paul, other tributes from Three 6 Mafia members included co-founder Juicy J who posted a photo of himself alongside Gangsta Boo with a lone broken heart emoji in the caption.

Taking part in five studio albums with Three 6 Mafia on top of a solo career and work with Run The Jewels, Gangsta Boo will be remembered as a pioneer in female Hip-Hop.
