She The Realist | Reviewer: Erricka | 4/24/2007

An anomaly within the generally misogynist late-'90s Dirty South rap scene, Gangsta Boo won substantial acclaim among audiences without sacrificing her pride. As a member of Memphis, TN, hardcore rap group Three 6 Mafia, she had held her own; it wasn't until her debut album, though, that she really started garnering an unprecedented amount of attention. Under the wings of Three 6 Mafia leaders Juicy "J" and DJ Paul's production, Enquiring Minds found Gangsta Boo confronting the lyrical issues that hardcore female rappers such as Lil' Kim have to address: sexual politics, money hungry stereotypes, proving that a female can be hardcore, and so on. Then after the success of this album, she played an important role in the success of Three 6 Mafia's When the Smoke Clears in 2000. She has also appeared as a member of Tear da Club Up Thugs and Hypnotize Camp Posse.
