Coolio, Rapper Best Know For ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ & ‘Fantastic Voyage,’ Dead At 59

Rapper Coolio, 59, has passed away. He was best known for his smash hits “Gangsta’s Paradise” and “Fantastic Voyage.”

Coolio’s manager Jarez confirmed the news to TMZ, adding that he passed away on Wednesday afternoon while he was visiting a buddy (September 28).

The Grammy-winning artist reportedly left to use the restroom but did not return. The friend went in search of the 59-year-old and found him lying on the restroom floor.

He was confirmed dead by paramedics when they got on the site a short time later. Jarez claimed that although there has been no formal announcement of the cause of death, paramedics think he had a heart attack.

Coolio was born Artis Leon Ivey Jr. and grew up in Los Angeles before breaking out on the rap scene in the 1980s.

With “Gangsta’s Paradise,” which was included in the 1995 movie Dangerous Minds starring Michelle Pfeiffer, his career took off. The song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and held that position for three weeks straight.
Throughout his career, Coolio continued to tour, most recently with Vanilla Ice, Young MC, Kid-N-Play, All 4 One, and Tone Lc on the I Love The ’90s Tour. In an interview with Minnesota Daily in 2010, Coolio shared his motivation for performing after all these years.

I like to rap, he declared. “My family is really musical; three of my boys rap, my daughter sings, and my nephew raps. We are quite inventive. We have a strong creative gene. My family, man, is what keeps me going. They like what I do, respect what I do, and are trustworthy.

He also spoke about how his live performance has changed, saying: “I’m more controlled now, compared to back then. It can best be compared to this energy-collecting dynamo. I soak up the crowd’s energy, and just as they start to tire, slump down, and pass out, I build it up to a crescendo and shoot it all back at them.  And then I’m slumped over and ready to pass out and they’re energized and ready for the next artist or end of the party or whatever.”
