BREAKING: One Of The Original Rappers Found DEAD At Age 59

Posted by DINO PORRAZZO at AMERICAS FREEDOM FIGHTERS

To begin I must confess I am not a fan of rap music for a variety of reasons but when an icon dies I will report it.

The legendary West Coast rapper, ‘Coolio’ died Wednesday in Los Angeles. He was just 59 years old.

Fox News reports that Coolio, whose full name was Artis Leon Ivey Jr., found incredible success with the Grammy Award-winning song “Gangsta’s Paradise,” and through his debut album, “It Takes a Thief,” released in 1994 and which featured the song “Fantastic Voyage.”

How did he die?

Apparently he died from a cardiac arrest, according to reports.

According to TMZCoolio’s longtime manager, Jarez, says Coolio went to the bathroom at his friend’s house, but when he didn’t come after a while … the friend kept calling for him, and eventually went in and found Coolio laying on the floor. We’re told the friend called EMTs, who arrived and pronounced Coolio dead on the scene — and Jarez tells us the paramedics suspect he suffered cardiac arrest.

“The individual that died and the cause of death will be done by the coroner’s office,” a LAPD public information officer said.

Coolio was nominated for six total Grammy awards during a decades-long career that began in the late-1980s.

He was born in Monessen, Pennsylvania south of Pittsburgh, and moved to Compton where he worked as a volunteer firefighter and in airport security before pursuing his passion in music.

Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” sold 6 million copies and won the Best Solo Rap Performance Grammy in 1996 after it was featured in Michelle Pfeiffer’s 1995 film “Dangerous Minds.”

The No. 1 single featured the opening lyrics, “As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I take a look at my life and realize there’s not much left, ‘cause I’ve been blastin’ and laughin’ so long, that even my mama thinks that my mind is gone.”

During a recent interview on “The Six O’Clock Show,” he talked about the process of writing the song and celebrating its success after it hit one billion streams.

“It’s one of those kinds of songs that transcends generations,” he said. “I didn’t use any trendy words … I think it made it timeless.”

Ice Cube tweeted- This is sad news. I witness first hand this man’s grind to the top of the industry. Rest In Peace @Coolio

Flavor Flav tweeted- “REST IN GANGSTA’S PARADISE MY FRIEND”

LL COOL J tweeted – “Rest in power my brother . @Coolio Love & Respect”

MC HAMMER tweeted- “One of the nicest dudes I’ve known. Good people. R.I.P. Coolio.”

SNOOP DOGG – “Gangstas paradise. R. I. P. ??? ? ♿️?@coolio.”

And even the legendary rocker Bret Michaels tweeted – “My deepest condolences go out to the family, friends & fans on the loss of @Coolio. This photo from when we did @ABCNetwork#GreatestHits together. Awesome guy who will be missed. #Coolio.”

So, this man was loved by many and will be missed.

Rest In Peace brother…
