Artis Leon Ivey Jr., Known Professionally as Coolio, Dead at 59

Paramedics attempted to resuscitate Coolio. However, the rapper died around 5 PM PST.

According to Coolio’s manager, Jarez Posey, he states, “Coolio was at a friend’s house in Los Angeles when he went to the bathroom. When he did not return for a “long time,” his friends broke down the door and found Coolio on the floor.”

Coolio won the Best Rap Solo Performance Grammy in 1996 for “Gangsta’s Paradise.”

RIP to the legend.
