Coolio died on Wednesday at the home of a friend in downtown Los Angeles. Death is unpredictable, and you never know when it will strike. The entire world was shocked by Coolio’s death, especially his close friends and family.
TMZ reports, Coolio performed his last gig ever last week in Texas with Vanilla Ice, who says he’s mourning his late friend’s death. Vanilla Ice told the outlet that he couldn’t sleep the night Coolio died. He woke up Thursday “still in shock and freaking out.”
Coolio and Ice have been touring together for the past 6 years on the “I Love The 90s” show. It included a trip last week to Cypress, TX, which turned out to be Coolio’s final show. Vanilla told the outlet that Coolio walked up onstage with him Friday night to freestyle during his set, and after the show, they stayed out in Ice’s dressing room with Coolio smiling and talking about life and seeming to be in great shape.
Coolio’s final words to Vanilla Ice were, “See you tomorrow, homie.” Ice further emphasized how upset he is.
My heart goes out to all the family. I’m truly devastated. He was a great friend.
The outlet obtained a video of Coolio’s last performance, and individuals who were there said he performed on stage for 45 minutes and was chatting a lot with the crowd. His voice was described as raspy, although he did not appear unwell.
Coolio was in Los Angeles for a passport issue when he died, as he had some upcoming shows in Germany. May his soul Rest In Peace.
