Coolio’s Death Caused by Accidental Fentanyl Overdose, L.A. County Coroner Says!


(KTLA) – The Los Angeles County sheriff has found out what killed rapper Coolio. His real name was Artis Ivey Jr., and he passed away on September 28, 2022. When he died at a friend’s house in Los Angeles, he was 59 years old.

The online record of the coroner’s report shows that he died from the “effects of fentanyl, heroin, and methamphetamine.” The way the person died was found to be “accidental.”

“Cardiomyopathy, unspecified asthma, and phencyclidine use” are also on the list of “other specific conditions” in the study.

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle that makes it harder for the heart to pump blood to the rest of the body. The Mayo Clinic says that cardiomyopathy can cause the heart to stop working.
