New details about the death of rapper Coolio (1963-2022): As "TMZ" reports, the paramedics are said to have "desperately" tried to revive the musician for 45 minutes before declaring him dead. Coolio was staying with a friend in Los Angeles at the time of his death. As the website continues, he is said to have collapsed in a bathroom late Wednesday afternoon.
Coolio, who lived in Las Vegas, had come to Los Angeles to sort out an issue with his passport, according to his manager. He would have needed it for a trip to Germany, where he should have performed at the weekend.
His last appearance was in Texas last week, along with Vanilla Ice (54). The two have been on stage together for six years as part of the "I Love The 90s" show. The musician told TMZ that he could hardly sleep after learning of his colleague's death Wednesday night. Thursday morning he was still "woke up shocked" and "freaked out".
