Rapper Coolio’s estate announced plans to release a posthumous album later this year featuring singles the Grammy Award-winning artist was working on before his death, according to the Associated Press.
The album titled “Long Live Coolio” is the first posthumous album release from the “Gangsta’s Paradise” hip-hop star. The first single, “TAG ‘You It,” was released on Friday and featured California rappers Too $hort and DJ Wino.
The music video featured Coolio and Too $hort in a boxing ring while women twerked. It marks the last piece of visual content Coolio appeared in before his death from cardiac arrest on September 28, 2022, at the age of 59.
In 1995, Coolio won a Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance for “Gangsta’s Paradise,” which was from the “Dangerous Minds” soundtrack of the Michelle Pfeiffer film. He also performed the theme music “Aw, Here It Goes!” to the ’90s Nickelodeon sitcom “Kenan & Kel.”
In total, Coolio was nominated for six Grammys and sold over 17 million records worldwide.
