Jarez also added that the friend revealed that Coolio had gone to the bathroom but took to long to come out. He then called out for him and after multiple attempts, he walked in and found Coolio laying on the ground.

Coolio’s friend then called for help and when the paramedics arrived, they pronounced him dead. They however suspect that he died from cardiac arrest but investigations have begun to determine what really caused the rapper’s death.
