A horrible and tragic loss to the music community indeed as we all have just lost the infamous, Coolio. Widely known best for his hit, ‘Gangsta’s Paradise,’ Coolio passed away at the young age of 59. Before his passing, he posted a very sad photo.
Coolio took to Instagram a week ago and posted a photo of himself in what looks to be a backstage area where he is sitting alone. In the room, he is seen facing away from the camera as, in the post, he starts questioning himself and the thoughts that roamed in his head.
Via multiple news outlets, we’re told police have opened a death investigation but as of right now there does not appear to be signs of foul play. However, our sources say the coroner will make a final determination following an autopsy. As of right now, the suspicion is that Coolio passed from cardiac arrest, but keep in mind that this is still developing.
A friend tried to contact the artist in the morning, but they were not able to get into contact with the star. As time went on, the friend felt that something was wrong and Coolio was then checked on. Sadly, when the door to Coolio’s room was opened; he lay on the floor, lifeless.
Quickly, EMT’s were called and the pronounced him at the scene within a very short period of time. As currently said by those involved within the situation; there have not been any drugs or anything of the nature around the scene.
We will have to wait and see how everything goes as time moves forward and more is found out about the sad passing of the award winning musician. A very big RIP to Coolio and our thoughts are with his fans, family, and friends.
