Damn! If you came up in the 90s era you know about Coolio. His hit song “Gangster’s Paradise” dominated the airwaves, charts & music television networks like MTV, VH1 & BET.

The video was dope as hell.

It’s sad to see another legend go down due to drug abuse. Fentanyl is so dangerous and the narcotic is being found in more and more street drugs & pills, and at an extremely alarming rate. Sometimes the user has no idea they are even consuming the drug. The effects can be deadly.

RIP Coolio.

Baller Alert — The “Gangsta’s Paradise” rapper’s manager Jarel (Jarez) Posey, confirmed Thursday that he died due to fentanyl. Coolio’s family also said he had traces of heroin and methamphetamines in his system. Investigators also determined that the rapper’s severe asthma and decades-long cigarette use also played a factor in his death and his body’s inability to fight back, TMZ reports.
