Rapper Coolio (Artis Leon Ivey Jr.) was visiting his manager and longtime friend when he passed away.
He was best known for the hit song “Gangsta’s Paradise” for the Motion Soundtrack of Dangerous Minds which has over a billion views on youtube.
Coolio’s manager/friend “Jarez Posey,” told authorities that the Grammy award-winning actor went to his bathroom and was in there for quite a period of time. Jarez said he began to call the rapper but there was no response which prompted him to check to see if Coolio was alright… but he found him unresponsive. The paramedics were called to the scene and said that the cause was most likely cardiac arrest.
