Jarez, Coolio’s longtime manager, told the outlet that the rapper was at a friend’s house in Los Angeles.
When he didn’t return after a reasonable time, the friend reportedly called him – but got no answer.
Worried, the friend went into the bathroom and found Coolio — whose real name is Ortiz Leon Ivy Jr. — on the floor. Medical personnel were immediately called.
Coolio was pronounced dead at the scene following a suspected heart attack. However, the official cause of death is still pending.
A representative for Coolio did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
The rapper — who began his career in the ’80s — rose to fame after the release of “Gangsta’s Paradise” in 1995, which was featured in the movie “Dangerous Minds” and earned him a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.
