COOLIO has died at the age of 59, according to TMZ.
Coolio, who topped the charts with hits like “Gangsta’s Paradise” in the mid 90s, was visiting a friend when he passed away. His longtime manager JAREZ said COOLIO went to the bathroom and never returned. His friend called EMTs, who arrived and pronounced the hip-hop star dead on the scene of cardiac arrest. An official cause of death has not been determined. Here’s my favorite “live” version, because there ain’t no gangstas in paradise.
