According to TMZ, when paramedics arrived, legendary rapper Coolio, best known for his song ‘Gangsta’s Paradise,’ was already deceased. Initial reports say police have opened a death investigation but “as of right now there does not appear to be signs of foul play.” 

In a statement issued by Coolio’s longtime manager, TMZ reports that Coolio was at a friend’s house when he excused himself to go to the bathroom. However, when he didn’t come out for a while, despite his friend “calling for him,” the friend went to the bathroom to see what was wrong.
