Boo & Gotti were an American hip-hop duo, composed of Sabrian "Boo" Sledge and Mwata "Gotti" Mitchell.

They are perhaps best known for appearing on the 2001 hit "Fiesta (Remix)" with R. Kelly and Jay-Z. The single peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent five consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks. Other notable appearances include R Kelly's "I Wish (Remix)", Big Tymers's 2002 single "Oh Yeah", and The Fast and the Furious soundtrack. Following the success of "Fiesta", the duo signed a record deal with Cash Money Records and recorded their debut album Perfect Timing, which was released during the summer of 2003. The album, however, was a commercial flop, only reaching number 195 on the Billboard 200.[1] Following the album's failure, the duo was released from Cash Money.

In 2005, Boo signed with Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment as a solo artist, but shortly parted ways with the label. As of 2017, Gotti has an estimated net worth of $3 million.
