The first posthumous Coolio album, Long Live Coolio, is set to arrive later this year.
The record will feature material Coolio was working on prior to his death. The announcement comes along with a new single “TAG, ‘You It'” assisted by collaborators Too $hort and DJ Wino.
The song and video were completed before his death, with Coolio making an appearance alongside Too $hort in a boxing ring, as they watch a few women taking on each other. Ken Francis and Kniknotti directed the visual.
Coolio, whose legal name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr., passed away on September 28. He was 59 years old at the time of his death.
The rapper, popular for hits like “Gangsta’s Paradise” and “Fantastic Voyage,” was found dead at his friend’s Los Angeles house. Coolio was discovered unresponsive on a bathroom floor. He was pronounced dead by first responders.
