A few star-studded video tributes were not played at Gangsta Boo‘s funeral. According to TMZ, there were technical issues that prevented the videos from being played on the church’s projector.
The virtual messages were from Three 6 Mafia‘s Juicy J, DJ EFN and Yelawolf, who shared their memories of the late rapper in their clips.
Juicy crowned Gangsta Boo the “Queen of Memphis,” reminisced on the final conversation they had after a show and expressed that he’s upset their journey has ended.
DJ EFN recalled meeting Gangsta Boo for the first time at SXSW in 2019, and Yelawolf, who referred to the late rapper as “family,” said that their relationship was one only they could understand.
Gangsta Boo’s funeral took place Saturday at Brown Baptist Church in Southaven, Mississippi. Among those absent was fellow Three 6 Mafia star DJ Paul, who’s been met with backlash for his failure to attend.
Paul responded to social media comments, revealing he paid for the service.
He explained that he’s on tour, but even if he wasn’t, he would not attend. “I don’t do funerals,” DJ Paul said.
Gangsta, born Lola Chantrelle Mitchell, passed away January 1 at the age of 43. The cause of her death has not been released.
