The house where Coolio died from an overdose

This is the house where Coolio died from an overdose.

It is situated at 2935 Chesapeake Avenue in Los Angeles, California.

The rapper, whose real name was Artis Leon Ivey Jr., rose to fame during the mid-1990s after he released hit singles such as "Gangsta's Paradise" and "C U When U Get There".

He also performed the opening song for the popular Nickelodeon TV show Kenan & Kel.

On the afternoon of September 28th, 2022, Coolio collapsed in the bathroom of this house, which was owned by one of his friends.

The rapper's friends realized that something was amiss when he excused himself and didn't return for a suspiciously long time.

After calling his name and receiving no answer, they entered the bathroom and found him lying on the floor in an unresponsive state.

Not long after, first responders arrived at Chesapeake Avenue and pronounced the 59-year-old dead at the scene.

Initially, it was stated that Coolio had suffered a cardiac arrest. His longtime manager, Jarez Posey, opined that his client may have died from a heart attack.

Although the rapper had a history of substance abuse, his close friends were adamant that he had been steering clear of drugs and alcohol in recent years.

These statements were supported by law enforcement officials, who said that they found no drug paraphernalia when they inspected the residence.

However, the truth finally came to light in April 2023, when the Los Angeles County coroner's report revealed that Coolio had accidentally died from the combined effects of fentanyl, heroin, and methamphetamine.

Furthermore, the rapper was also suffering from cardiomyopathy (heart disease) and had recently used the drug phencyclidine (commonly referred to as PCP).

Sadly, this means that his sudden death was entirely preventable.
