We are deeply saddened by the passing of GANGSTA BOO. Having her come through BREALTV, The Dr Greenthumb Show, and the Smokebox will always be remembered as some of the best and funniest times. Our condolences go out to all of her friends, family, and fans.
Gangsta Boo was an American hip-hop artist and rapper from Memphis, Tennessee. She was known for her hardcore rap style, which often includes explicit lyrics about drugs, sex, and violence. Gangsta Boo initially gained notoriety as a member of the Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia, and later went on to pursue a solo career. Her debut solo album, Enquiring Minds, was released in 1998.
Gangsta Boo’s music often focuses heavily on the gritty realities of street life, detailing her own experiences with drugs, crime, and violence. Her lyrics are often filled with profanity and references to illegal activities, and she is not afraid to push the boundaries of hip-hop to make her point. Her music has been heavily influenced by the sounds of Memphis rap, which often includes elements of soul, blues, and funk.
In addition to her solo career, Gangsta Boo collaborated with numerous other rap artists, including Juicy J, Project Pat, and Big K.R.I.T. She is also a member of the rap supergroup Da Mafia 6ix, which also includes former Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul and Crunchy Black.
Despite her often explicit lyrical content, Gangsta Boo maintains a positive outlook and is a firm believer in the power of music to uplift and inspire. She was vocal about the importance of keeping the spirit of Memphis rap alive and has used her platform to promote the city’s talent. She was also an advocate for the LGBT+ community and has used her music to speak out against homophobia and injustice.
We will always remember the great times, laughs, and smiles she brought to the world.
