Coolio’s cause of death has been revealed, died from Fentanyl

More than five months after the death of the rapper, Coolio, the cause of his passing was disclosed on Thursday.

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

On Thursday, a family spokesperson by the name of Jarel (Jarez) Posey informed FOX3 that the Los Angeles coroner’s office has informed Coolio’s family that the rapper’s death was caused by fentanyl. Coolio was also found to have heroin and methamphetamine in his system. Additionally, the investigators noted that Coolio’s asthma and cigarette smoking contributed to his passing.

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

The family intends to keep Coolio’s music alive by putting out new tracks. 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 features Too $hort and is a teaser for his forthcoming 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, which was 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 on-site. Initially, Jarel (Jarez) Posey had informed TMZ that the paramedics suspected that Coolio had experienced cardiac arrest.
