After the death of US rapper Coolio, stars and companions such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Snoop Dogg and LeBron James share reactions.

After the surprising, far too early death of US rapper Coolio (1963-2022), stars, companions and especially numerous musicians shared touching reactions on social networks. Hollywood star Michelle Pfeiffer (64), who is connected to Coolio through his biggest hit “Gangsta’s Paradise”, wrote on Instagram: “Heartbroken to hear of the passing of the talented artist Coolio. A life ended all too soon”.

With “Gangsta’s Paradise”, Coolio created the title track for Pfeiffer’s hit film “Dangerous Minds – Wilde Thoughts” from 1995. In her post, the actress names the song as the reason for the film’s great popularity – and shares an excerpt from the joint music video of the both stars.

Basketball superstar LeBron James (37) posted on his official Instagram account in a story the name Coolios followed by eight emojis of the white dove of peace. Immediately following, the Los Angeles Lakers star wrote in another story, “Right where he is now! Gangsta’s Paradise.”

Musicians and stars of the 1990s offer their condolences

Numerous musical companions also paid tribute to the late rapper on social networks. This is how hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg (50) simply wrote on Instagram: “Gangsta’s Paradise. Rest In Peace,” and shared a picture of the two West Coast rappers together.

MC Hammer (60), a superstar of the early 1990s (“U Can’t Touch This”), wrote on Twitter: “One of the nicest guys I knew” while rapper LL Cool J (54) tweeted in a variation on the English “rest in peace”.: “Rest in power my brother. Coolio. Love and respect”.

Also actor Martin Lawrence (57) condoled and wrote on Twitter: “My deepest condolences and prayers go out to Coolio’s family”. Musician and comedian “Weird Al” Yankovic (62), who parodied Coolio’s biggest hit “Gangsta’s Paradise” in 1996 with his “Amish Paradise”, shared a photo of a hug with the rap great on Twitter and wrote simply: “Rest In Peace Coolio”.
