Gangsta Boo will never be forgotten. The Memphis native is best known for joining the legendary hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia as a teenager, going on to become one of the pioneers for gangster rap amongst females. This year on New Years Day, Gangsta Boo tragically passed away while in her hometown of Memphis.
Now, Gangsta Boo’s partner Emmet Flores is making sure her legacy lives on. He launches a new website www.queenofmemphis.com, featuring brand new merch including t-shirts and hoodies. The proceeds go directly to her mom, as well as Stax Music Academy in Memphis who will receive 10% of all sales for student tuition.
Additionally, he’s also promoting her posthumous release, The Booprint,which he reveals will have some standout features. Run the Jewels, Latto, Skepta, and La Chat are all confirmed, with a few more to come. Producers include Drumma Boy, Nick Hook, and El-P, with talks of Metro Boomin and BeatKing working on the project also.
Gangsta Boo’s mother, Veronica Mitchell, states, “My daughter Lola was my only baby girl. I was so proud when she would rap as a little girl. She called herself Tinkerbell and would always be singing her little songs. Me and her father Cedric knew she was talented but she took it to another level chile. She became the Queen of Memphis. My baby is loved by people everywhere and it all started at home with us. That’s so amazing to me. It makes me smile ear to ear. God brought her home to be with her daddy Cedric and her brother Derron. I miss her but I know she’s happy with them. I’ll always remember telling her GO GET THEM DOLLAS, but I had no idea how many people would love my baby girl. I’m grateful all y’all support my daughter. Thank you.”
