TMZ reports that EMTs arrived to pronounce the rapper dead on the scene. Jarez said that the rapper is believed to have died from cardiac arrest.

Coolio, whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr., began his rap career in the 80s, but he took off in 1995 when he released the song “Gangsta’s Paradise” on the soundtrack of “Dangerous Minds” (1995).

“Gangsta’s Paradise” rocketed to #1 on the Billboard Charts, staying there for three weeks.
