Coolio’s longtime manager, Jarez, detto TMZ that the rapper was visiting a friend when he died.

He reportedly went to use the restroom and never came out.

The friend eventually went to check on him and found him on the floor.

An official cause of death has not yet been released.

ABC News reporter Chris Cristi revealed that as of 4pm PST police were still on the scene at the home where the prolific singer was found dead.

Coolio was an up-and-comer in the late 1980s who rocketed to fame in 1995 with Gangsta’s Paradise.

He recorded the song for the soundtrack for 1995 Dangerous Minds film.

His other hits included Fantastic Voyage, 1,2,3,4 (Sumpin’ Nuovo), and It’s All the Way Live (Adesso).

Coolio also did the theme song for the hit TV show Kenan & Kel, called Aw, Here It Goes.

Just days earlier, the rapper posted a video to his Instagram from onstage in Texas.

He did not caption the post, instead letting the video speak for itself.

That post has become a makeshift memorial as fans learn of his death.
