According to Fox 13 in Memphis, Gangsta Boo died of an accidental lethal overdose of drugs and alcohol.

Gangsta Boo was called out by Dr. Ish Major on Marriage Bootcamp: Hip Hop Edition
Gangsta Boo and Emmet Flores appeared on Marriage Bootcamp: Hip Hop edition on WeTV.
They were there to get counseling and work on their relationship from Dr. Ish Major and the other experts on hand.
Things appeared to go well initially, leading Gangsta Boo to open up about her struggles with loss. She joined Three 6 Mafia, and living that rapper life was something that not everyone could understand.
However, there was a confrontation between Dr. Ish, Gangsta, and Emmet after a white powder substance in a small bag was found in their room. It was assumed to be cocaine, and she vehemently denied that it could have been found in her room. She and Emmet had to leave the show before completing the program.
Gangsta was incredibly defensive about the situation, pacing around and immediately asking Emmet if he was ready to go. Dr. Ish offered her some suggestions should she need to address a substance abuse issue.
Gangsta Boo was a pioneer in Hip Hop

Unfortunately, the substance abuse issues suspected when she appeared on Marriage Bootcamp: Hip Hop Edition got the best of the legendary rapper. Her death was felt throughout the rap community and in the music world.
