I’ve got to interrupt my series of gun-control posts for a hot second to send a birthday shout-out to my gorgeous friend Lola Mitchell, aka the legendary rapper Gangsta Boo. I’m so sad I couldn’t celebrate with her in L.A. or Memphis, but at least we got to hang out in June. Not only that, but MrB and I got treated to an acoustic version of Boo’s “Crazy Lover” collab with singer Christina Castle. The video is dark and blurry so just close your eyes — as I obviously did while shooting this — and listen to Boo’s highlarious verse!

Happy birthday to the legendary @missyeahoe … in June I was treated to a private performance of #crazylover , her collab with @christinacastlestory … what a great night. I wish the video was in focus but how amazing do they sound? Wishing Lola the very best on her big day 💕🎂 and reminding her that she’ll always be much younger than me! 😹 #womenofrap #yeahoe #gangstaboo #three6mafia #christinacastle #happybirthdaylola #cakecakecake #missyou #idontgiveafuck #youcancallthepolice #immastandrightthere #andtellemitwasme
Earlier that night, Boo and I were trying to figure out how long we’ve known each other, and I’ve nailed it down thanks to the blog: I got in touch with her in December 2011 because I wanted to send her some jewelry.
I had her decked out by January 2012, but it took us till that summer to meet in New York.
So we’ve officially been friends for seven years. I’d say we’ve stepped up our posing game in that time — what do you think?
Best wishes for a wonderful year, Lola!
