Three 6 Mafia rapper Gangsta Boo died from an accidental drug overdose, an autopsy report has revealed.
The report, obtained by Fox 13, showed that the musician had fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol in her system on January 1.

Just one day before her sudden death, the “Late Night Tip” hitmaker attended a Memphis gig with her brother, who was hospitalized after suffering an overdose himself.
He was ultimately able to recover from it.
The “Sippin on Some Syrup” rapper’s death was confirmed by her label-mate DJ Paul K.O.M., who posted a photo on Instagram of her deejaying in tribute at the time of her death.
The outlet, which is based in Local Memphis, Tenn., reported that Gangsta Boo was found dead around 4 p.m. local time.
Boo, whose real name was Lola Chantrelle Mitchell, shared an Instagram video just hours before her death.

The “Stay Fly” rapper was the second female member of Three 6 Mafia after K-9.

After joining Three 6 Mafia in the 1990s, Gangsta Boo left the group in the early 2000s to launch another solo album and numerous mixtapes.
The “Side 2 Side” hitmaker was featured in songs by famous rappers including Gucci Mane, OutKast, Latto, and The Game.
