Coolio, the rapper best known for his hit singles “Gangsta’s Paradise” and “Fantastic Voyage,” has died aged 59.

Coolio’s manager Jarez confirmed the news to TMZ, revealing that he died while he was visiting a friend on Wednesday afternoon (September 28).

Jarez said the Grammy-winner went to the bathroom but never came back. After the friend went to look for him, he discovered the 59-year-old laying on the bathroom floor.

Paramedics arrived on the scene minutes later and pronounced him dead. Jarez said paramedics believe he suffered a cardiac arrest, although no official cause of death has been released.

FLAWLESS LIKE ME was released on September 22 and has features from Future and Babyface Ray. The album follows his 2021 mixtape Wake Up Lucki which he did as a collaborative effort with Philadelphia producer F1lthy.

Drake always keeps his ears to the streets to catch the newcomers looking to break through and into the game. He recently did it with Ice Spice when he got a hold of her “Munch (Feelin’ U)” record and played it along with several other of The Bronx rapper’s tracks during an episode of his radio show.

He also started following the 22-year-old on Instagram and flew her out to Toronto to hang out and attend OVOFest. The curly-haired rapper recently had a chat with RapCaviar where she spoke about the impromptu meet-up and the time Drizzy reached out to her on Instagram.

“When Drake DM’d me, I did not really expect that,” Spice said about the message she received from Drizzy. “I had just landed in L.A. for my Genius Open Mic for ‘Munch,’ and he was actually like, ‘Yo, ‘Munch’ is hard and your On the Radar freestyle is hard.’ And I was like, ‘Damn, that’s crazy because I’m really in L.A. about to shoot the Open Mic.’”

She added: “Linking up with him was so cool. Like, he’s mad nice and respectful. We went to OVO Fest. It was exciting because it was like his first time performing in Toronto, I think in like a couple of years. So it was just a movie, everybody was excited. The energy was high. Nicki [Minaj] performed, it was lit. [Lil] Wayne did his thing. That shit was crazy.”
