I am sad to report Gangsta Boo, who is revered as the “First Lady of Southern Rap,” was found dead on New Year’s Day, according to Fox 13 Memphis.

The former Three 6 Mafia rapper, whose real name is Lola Mitchell, was found at approximately 4 p.m.

She was 43.

Details surrounding her death have not been released as this is a breaking and developing story.

Gangsta Boo previously made headlines when she and her boyfriend, Emmet Flores, were booted from the cast of WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition” for contraband. 

She took to Twitter and blasted production for staging and planting a bag, which appeared to have a white powdery substance in it. 

DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia took to Instagram and shared a photo of Boo without a caption. 

K. Michelle, who is also from Memphis, took to Twitter to share she is heartbroken.

“You already know what it is. We FOREVER! Broke my whole heart today sis. I love you ❤️ #memphis R.I.P. Gangsta Boo.”

Many others have taken to Twitter to react the news of Gangsta Boo’s untimely passing. 

Read a few tweets below.

My sincerest condolences to Gangsta Boo’s family, friends, and all who knew and loved her.
