"It's that time of year again, people. Same rules as always.
The celebrity in question must be deceased.
They must have been a celebrity prior to their death.
If there is a question that they are a celebrity, their status must get a second vote by another DRC member."




Every year the DeathList website posts a list of the 50 celebrities whom they believe are most likely to die during the year. Here is the list for 2023:


And here is the first celebrity death of 2023. Well.....at least she was a celebrity to fans of hip-hop. Gangsta Boo, born Lola Chantrelle Mitchell, was a member of Memphis hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia from 1995 to 2002 and recorded six albums with them. She also released three solo albums and 10 mixtapes. Among her best-known songs are Who We Be, Love Don't Live, Mask 2 My Face and Where Dem Dollas At.

Three 6 Mafia
I didn't know they had a female member at some point. I only know of this group because I reviewed their 2008 song "Shake My". What gets me is that group is known for rapping about beating women. Wonder if she was in the group when they were rapping those women-beating lyrics? Here are some excerpts from my review:

Even horrorcore rappers who promote misogynistic violence have a danceable, comical, fun side – especially when their record company tells them they do.

Three 6 Mafia's "Shake My" aims to recapture the success the group had when they took a break from writing their usual lyrics about "taking my fist and beat these bitches badly."

Perhaps Mafia rappers Juicy J and DJ Paul hated releasing another song that doesn't include lines like "push her head into the wall until you hear that cracking sound." Or, maybe they just aren't so good with the English language. Either way, I could barely tell what these mushmouths were saying.

Ya never know. Maybe she enjoyed beating those bitches too.
There's nothing wrong with a lady enjoying that hobby too......other than everything that's wrong with anyone enjoying that hobby.

Gangsta Boo was a member of Three 6 Mafia from 1995 to 2001. She was with them for such beautiful heartwarming ballads as Destruction Terror, Spill My Blood, Neighborhood Hoe, Fuck Y'all Hoes, Hit A Muthafucka, Mafia Niggaz, Weak Azz Bitch and Barrin' You Bitches.

In his 1970 top-ten country hit Where Have All Our Heroes Gone, Bill Anderson asked, "How many of our astronauts can you name? Huh? How many?" Well, Bill, how about this one:

Just checked out DeathList and didn't realize some celebrities were really old like Tony Bennett and Robert Wagner. To be honest I thought Mel Brooks passed away years ago.

I don't like seeing Tina Turner on the list. She is simply the best!

This year's prediction: Bob Dylan. He's up there in years and not as active as he used to be. Think he'll be Knock-Knock-Knockin' on Heaven's Door before too long.
