The first proper Three 6 Mafia
solo album, Gangsta Boo
's Enquiring Minds
quickly elevated her to celebrity status among Three 6 Mafia
's cult audience, and also garnered her substantial respect from both her broader set of fans and from the Southern rap scene as well. In all honesty, it's a fairly standard affair for producers Juicy J
and DJ Paul
, who had their duties down to assembly line efficiency at this point in late 1998, churning out multiple records a year. Yet the fact that Gangsta Boo
is a female MC in a genre that tends to hold a rather misogynist stance against women and also tends to be overly lacking in female MCs is indeed notable.
