Coolio dies at 59

Our thoughts are with the loved ones of rapper Coolio. According to TMZ, he passed away at the age of 59 in Los Angeles. Reports indicate that he visited a friend on Wednesday afternoon when he passed away. Jarez, Coolio’s longtime manager, says that Coolio went to the bathroom at his friend’s house, and his friend went looking for him after noticing that he had been gone for a while.

His friend found Coolio lying on the ground and quickly called paramedics. Unfortunately, when they arrived, he was pronounced dead at the scene. Jarez said paramedics suspect Coolio went into cardiac arrest. However, an official cause of death has not been determined.

The rapper became popular in the 1990s with his song “Gangsta’s Paradise,” released in 1995 for the soundtrack of the movie “Dangerous Minds.”

The song became his biggest hit and quickly became one of the most popular rap songs of all time, topping the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks, according to Variety. In addition, it ended 1995 as the number 1 single of that year in the United States. The following year, in 1996, ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ was nominated for Record of the Year and Best Rap Solo Performance at the Grammy Awards, with Coolio winning the latter.

There was controversy behind the record when Weird Al Yankovic created a parody of the song on ‘Amish Paradise’ in 1996. Coolio insisted that he did not allow Weird Al to do so. However, Coolio and Weird Al made amends and became friends.
