Rapper Coolio died at 59

Rapper Coolio, who was one of hip-biggest hop’s names in the 1990s with hits like “Gangsta’s Paradise” and “Fantastic Voyage,” died Wednesday at the age of 59, according to his manager.

Rapper Coolio died at the home of a friend in Los Angeles, according to longtime manager Jarez Posey. The reason was not immediately apparent.

Coolio won a Grammy for best solo rap performance for “Gangsta’s Paradise,” a 1995 hit from the soundtrack of Michelle Pfeiffer’s film “Dangerous Minds” that sampled Stevie Wonder’s 1976 song “Pastime Paradise” and was heavily played on MTV.

The Grammy, and the pinnacle of his popularity, arrived in 1996, amid a bitter feud between the two coasts’ hip-hop communities, which would soon take the lives of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.

Born in Monessen, Pennsylvania south of Pittsburgh, Coolio moved to Compton, California. His mother sent him to Northern California as a teen because she thought the city was too dangerous.

In interviews, he stated that he began rapping at the age of 15 and knew by the age of 18 that it was what he wanted to do with his life, but he would attend community college and work as a volunteer firefighter and in airport security before devoting himself full-time to the hip-hop scene.
