Coolio’s death

Artis Leon Ivey Jr., the artist’s true name, died while visiting a friend. Jarez said that the rapper went to the restroom but did not return for quite some time. When his companion broke into the restroom, he saw the rapper motionless on the floor. Paramedics suspect Coolio died as a result of a heart attack, according to Posey, but the formal cause of death has yet to be confirmed. According to law enforcement officials, no drugs or drug paraphernalia were discovered on the scene. They said that an autopsy and toxicology tests would reveal the primary reason for his death. At about 4 p.m., paramedics arrived at the rapper’s friend’s home and informed that the rapper had died on the spot.


According to recent developments, an inquiry has been initiated, but no evidence of wrongdoing has been found. Following an autopsy, the coroner is anticipated to provide extensive details.

Coolio has featured in reality series such as Celebrity Big Brother.

Coolio, who was born on August 1, 1963, attended Compton Community College and began his career as a volunteer fireman and security guard at Los Angeles International Airport. In 1987, he released his debut song, and in 1991, he joined WC and the Maad Circle. In 1994, the rapper signed with Tommy Boy Records and released his first album, It Takes a Thief. The album peaked at number eight on the Billboard 200, and the songs were well received by the public.

In 1995, he recorded the track Gangsta’s Paradise, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks. Gangsta’s Paradise was featured on his second album, Gangsta’s Paradise, which was released in 1995 and sold about 2 million copies worldwide. In 2014, the band Falling in Reverse covered Gangsta’s Paradise, and Artis appeared in the music video. My Soul, his third album, was released in 1997 and, although it reached platinum, it failed to match the popularity of his previous two albums.


The musician was dismissed by Tommy Boy Records, and he recorded a few singles that were not well received by the public. He was then featured on F**k the DJ, a collaborative tune by rapper Blacklisted MC. In 2004, he appeared on the German talent program Comeback – Die grobe Chance, and in 2009, he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother. He has also starred in reality series such as Ultimate Big Brother, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, and Wife Swap. He appeared in series such as The Nanny and Black Jesus in small parts.
