Posted On : September 28, 2022


We have heartbreaking news to share I Love Old School Music family…rap legend, Coolio, has passed away today, and his loved ones are devastated.

The latest info to surface, regarding his cause of death, is as follows:

Via TMZ — Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … paramedics were called to a house in Los Angeles around 4 PM for a medical emergency and when they got there they pronounced Coolio dead.
We’re told police have opened a death investigation but as of right now there does not appear to be signs of foul play. However, our sources say the coroner will make a final determination following an autopsy.

It’s also being reported that Coolio died unexpectedly at his friend’s home in Los Angeles.

According to Coolio’s manager, Jarez, ‘Coolio went to the bathroom at his friend’s house, but when he didn’t come out after a while … the friend kept calling for him, and eventually went in and found Coolio laying on the floor.’

The friend then called an ambulance, but once the EMT’s arrived they’d announced Coolio dead on the scene.

Although Coolio’s manager says the EMT’s suspect Coolio suffered a cardiac arrest, again, the official cause of death will not be determined until an autopsy is performed.

Our hearts are aching for Coolio’s children and his loved ones. He may be gone too soon…but his legacy will continue to live on through his classic ’90s hits, like “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Artis Leon Ivey Jr. a.k.a. Coolio…rest well king.
