What Was The Cause Of Coolio’s Death
The rapper’s rep confirmed his death. The “Gangsta’s Paradise” singer died at the age of 59. The Grammy Award winner (born Artis Leon Ivey Jr.) died abruptly while visiting a friend on Wednesday, September 28, according to his longtime manager Jarez Posey, who contacted TMZ and Rolling Stone hours later.
“We are saddened by the loss of our dear friend and client, Coolio, who passed away this afternoon,” a rep for Coolio told Us Weekly on Wednesday. “He touched the world with the gift of his talent and will be missed profoundly. Thank you to everyone worldwide who has listened to his music and to everyone who has been reaching out regarding his passing. Please have Coolio’s loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.”
According to TMZ, the late rapper’s companion became concerned after the late rapper went to the bathroom and was out of commission for an extended amount of time.
