Coolio’s cause of death revealed, death from fentanyl

More than five months after rapper Coolio died, his cause of death was revealed on Thursday.

The Los Angeles-based artist, famous for songs like ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’, ‘Fantastic Voyage’, ‘1, 2, 3, 4 (Sumpin’ New)’ and ‘CU When U Get There’, had fentanyl in his system when he died on September 28, 2022, at the age of 59.

On Thursday, a family spokesperson named Jarel (Jarez) Posey told FOX3 that the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office informed Coolio’s family that the rapper’s death was caused by fentanyl. It was also discovered that Coolio had heroin and methamphetamine in his system. Additionally, investigators noted that Coolio’s asthma and smoking contributed to his death.

According to Jarel (Jarez) Posey, Coolio’s family hopes his fans will remember him for his contributions to music and the kind of person he was. They also want his followers to know how much he appreciates them. The family plans to honor Coolio’s legacy by creating new documentaries and films and continuing to release his music.

The family intends to keep Coolio’s music alive by releasing new material. In March, the first single, “Tag ‘You It”, was made available on streaming platforms, which is the first posthumous release of Coolio’s music. This track contains Too $hort and is a teaser for his upcoming album, Long Live Coolio, which does not yet have a release date. This upcoming album will be Coolio’s first since From the Bottom 2 the Top, released in 2009.

On September 28, Coolio was discovered lying on the floor of a friend’s bathroom. His friend called paramedics, but Coolio was pronounced dead at the scene. Initially, Jarel (Jarez) Posey told TMZ that paramedics suspected Coolio had suffered cardiac arrest.
