Grammy-winning rapper, producer and actor Coolio, best known for his 1995 hit 'Gangsta's Paradise', has died aged 59.The rapper's longtime manager Jarel Posey confirmed the news to Variety, saying that Coolio died on Wednesday afternoon.

According to TMZ, Coolio was found at a friend's house, reports 'Variety'."We are saddened by the loss of our dear friend and client, Coolio, who passed away this afternoon. He touched the world with the gift of his talent and will be missed profoundly."

Sheila Finegan, his manager at Trinity Artists International, said in a statement to 'Variety'."Thank you to everyone worldwide who has listened to his music and to everyone who has been reaching out regarding his passing. 

Please have Coolio's loved ones in your thoughts and prayers."Coolio rose to prominence in the Los Angeles rap scene in the '90s, scoring his big break when he recorded the song 'Gangsta's Paradise' for the 1995 film 'Dangerous Minds', starring Michelle Pfeiffer.

It quickly became one of the most popular rap songs of all time, topping the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks and ending 1995 as the No. 1 single of that year in the US.In 1996, 'Gangsta's Paradise' was nominated for record of the year and best rap solo performance at the Grammy Awards, with Coolio winning the latter.

The song was soon spoofed by 'Weird Al' Yankovic, who satirized it as 'Amish Paradise', though Coolio was adamant that he did not give Weird Al permission to do so.However, Coolio later said in interviews that the two made amends.

Born Artis Leon Ivey Jr. on Augist 1, 1963 in Pennsylvania, Coolio later moved to Compton, Califaornia, where he joined the hip-hop group WC and the Maad Circle in 1991.A few years later, in 1994, Coolio signed with Tommy Boy Records and released his debut album 'It Takes a Thief'. 

Catapulted by its lead single 'Fantastic Voyage', 'It Takes a Thief' peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart and was certified platinum.After the success of 'Gangsta's Paradise' in the mid-'90s, Coolio continued to grow in fame and eventually recorded 'Aw, Here It Goes!' for the opening sequence of Nickelodeon's 'Kenan & Kel', which he also appeared in.

His third album, 'My Soul', released in 1997 and contained 'C U When U Get There', which hit No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.The album was certified gold but didn't have the same effect as his first two records, and thus became his last record with Tommy Boy.

Coolio would go on to release five more studio albums: 2001's '', 2002's 'El Cool Magnifico', 2006's 'The Return of the Gangsta', 2008's 'Steal Hear' and 2009's 'From the Bottom 2 the Top'.As his commercial success in music faded, Coolio became a TV personality, placing third on a German talent show about artists looking to make a comeback in 2004 and appearing on 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2009.

Food was also a big love of Coolio's. He released a cookbook, 'Cookin' With Coolio', in 2009 and competed on the Food Network series 'Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off' in 2012, coming in second place.A talented actor as well, Coolio appeared in dozens of films and TV shows throughout his career.

Starting with a guest spot as himself on 'Martin', Coolio's credits include the 'Dangerous Minds' TV spinoff , 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch', 'Batman & Robin', 'The Nanny', "Tyrone', 'Midnight Mass', 'Charmed', 'Star-ving', 'Futurama' and 'Gravity Falls'.
