Coolio was found dead last week at the age of 59 on the bathroom floor of a friend’s house in Los Angeles. To date, the official cause of the rapper’s death is not yet known. But several reports indicate that he suffered a cardiac arrest.
Coolio’s friends believe, however, that his “severe asthma” may have been the trigger. Research by the American Heart Association shows that people with persistent asthma are more likely to develop arrhythmias.

Despite his health, Coolio was on stage several times in the days leading up to his death. Fans also testified that Coolio showed himself “very energetic and happy” during his last appearance. Montel Jordan, with whom Coolio was on tour a few days before his death, also confirms that he did not see Coolio’s sudden death coming: “I’ve spent weeks and months with him and have absolutely no idea the circumstances of his death. I have not seen anything that could be evidence of What happened to him,” the “This Is How We Do It” singer concluded.
