Lola Mitchell, a pioneering rapper and former member of the group Three 6 Mafia, died Sunday. She was 43.

Mitchell, also known as Gangsta Boo, recorded her first song “Cheefa Da Reefa” with Three 6 Mafia when she was 14 and officially joined the group a year later in 1994. She became an influential member of the Memphis rap scene, recording with rising artists and stars alike after leaving Three 6 Mafia in the early 2000s.

She has worked with legendary rappers like Lil Jon, TI, Killer Mike and Gucci Mane and was featured on a recent track by Latto that premiered just a few weeks ago.

“I would honestly say that I have to respectfully and humbly admit that I am the blueprint,” she told Billboard in December. “I hear my cadence in a lot of male and female rappers. … I used to run away from it. I used to not even want to give myself flowers because I was so reserved and humble. It is time to claim what is mine.”

DJ Paul, a founding member of Three 6 Mafia, posted a tribute to Mitchell on Instagram.

Her cause of death is unknown.
