Coolio, West Coast Rapper of Gangsta’s Paradise Fame, Dies Aged 59

0
Tupac, MC Hammer, Snoop Dogg & Coolio

Coolio, the Grammy-winning rapper, producer and actor best known for his 1995 hit “Gangsta’s Paradise,” has died. He was 59.

The rapper’s longtime manager Jarel Posey confirmed the news to Variety, saying that Coolio died around 5 p.m. PT on Wednesday afternoon.

Coolio was at a friend’s home late Wednesday afternoon when he went to the bathroom. We’re told he was in there for quite a while, and the friend became concerned and began calling for him. When Coolio didn’t respond, the friend went inside the bathroom and found the rapper laying on the floor.

He called EMT’s who quickly responded and saw no signs of life. They administered CPR for 3/4 of an hour before concluding it was futile.

Coolio’s manager told us the 59-year-old rapper came down from Vegas, where he lives, to L.A. so he could either get or renew his passport.

The manager said there was some problem with getting the passport in L.A. and the 2 had talked on the phone about going down to San Diego to get the job done. As for why he needed to go to the passport office … he had shows scheduled in Germany this weekend.

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 United States. 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 Aug. 1, 1963 in Pennsylvania, Coolio later moved to Compton, Calif. 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 “Coolio.com,” 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” (1995), Coolio’s credits include the “Dangerous Minds” TV spinoff (1996), “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” (1996), “Batman & Robin” (1997), “The Nanny” (1998), “Tyrone” (1999), “Midnight Mass” (1999), “Charmed” (2002), “Star-ving” (2009), “Futurama” (2001, 2010) and “Gravity Falls” (2012).

According to his IMDb page, Coolio had three movies in the works: Rob Margolies’ “Bobcat Moretti,” a monster film called “It Wants Blood 2” and a TV movie “Vegas High.” Coolio also continued to perform, having just recently played a set at Chicago’s Riot Fest on Sept. 18.

The top music schools around the globe

1. Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts

Austria was home to world-renowned composers like Haydn, Schubert, Mozart, and Haydn. Vienna was also Europe’s musical capital for many years.

The 5 Best Music Conservatories in the World

0

Appropriate musical training is essential to unlocking the full potential of a great artist. It is for this reason that today we present the top 5 music conservatories in the world, which most experts place at the forefront of the international music scene and which, with one honorable exception, have a distinctly Anglo-Saxon accent.

Here is our list:

The Juilliard School, United States

Every musician has heard its name and, even if he doesn’t know exactly what he learns there, knows that it is one of the best. The Juilliard School was founded in 1905 and has become a world leader in teaching the performing arts. According to the principal, the school’s mission is to guarantee its students the highest quality of artistic education. In this way, talented musicians, dancers, and actors from around the world reach their full creative potential.

It is located in New York City at Lincoln Center. In music, Juilliard offers a variety of degrees in classical music, jazz, historical performance, and vocal arts. They also offer two types of studying – in-person and online. You will also be expected to write various research papers. You can ask to write essay for money if you don’t want to do a boring assignment.

They currently have more than 850 students from 44 states and more than 40 countries and regions around the world. These students are active in more than 700 performances a year at the school’s five theaters, the Alice Tully and David Geffen halls at Lincoln Center, and New York’s exclusive Carnegie Hall. They regularly perform at other venues around the world.

Royal College of Music, UK

The Royal College of Music is another of the most famous music schools in the world. And no wonder, since it was chosen as the best performing arts institution in Great Britain for the sixth year in a row in 2021 and the best in Europe for the second year in a row. In addition, its research programs are ranked number one in the world.

Its buildings are right across from the Royal Albert Hall, on Prince Consort Road, next to Imperial College. You may be familiar with the area because this is where the museums and cultural centers of Albertopolis are located. Of course, don’t forget that the Royal College of Music has its own museum with a collection of more than 800 musical instruments and accessories dating from the mid-15th century to the present. One of its museum’s most special exhibits is the clavicytherium (the oldest keyboard instrument in the world).

Their courses, from undergraduate to doctoral level, focus on all aspects of Western music: performance, composition, conducting, music theory, and music history. They accept students from all over the world, and their acceptance rate is 18%.

Oxford University, UK

The Department of Music at the University of Oxford contains undergraduate and graduate programs for composers, performers, and musicologists. The exact date of its founding is unknown, but it is one of the oldest in the world still in operation.

Notable alumni of the music department include Hubert Parry, George Butterworth, John Taverner, William Walton, and Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

Berklee College of Music, Massachusetts

Berklee College of Music is a modern school of music. Its philosophy is that music is best taught through the music of the time. Thus, Berklee College of Music’s ranking may be No. 1 when considering contemporary art schools exclusively.

Its educational programs range from undergraduate to graduate degrees in a wide range of fields (jazz, film, music therapy, music production, etc.). One direct consequence of focusing exclusively on contemporary music is that it is the center that has the most award-winning students. If you count the Grammy Awards alone, there are more than 250, and they have won many Oscars as well.

Berklee was founded in 1945 and is located in Boston, Massachusetts (USA). Although this school is much larger than many others on the list (it has 606 faculties and about 4,200 students), it also has one of the highest enrollment rates at 35%.

Vienna University of Music and the Arts

The University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna is one of the largest and oldest music schools in the world. It opened in 1817 in Vienna, Austria, and its students have always included names of famous musicians such as Brahms and Mahler.

It currently has about 3,000 students, with an average of 4.7 students per faculty member. This means that any student’s needs can always be met. For this reason, its students have won many international awards in all areas of music, such as conducting, organ, voice, and composition. In addition, the university itself organizes prestigious competitions, such as the International Beethoven Piano Competition.

The university is known throughout Europe as an educational institution that has trained and trains personnel for Europe’s most important orchestras.

10 Facts About Tupac Even The Biggest Fans Might Not Know

0
56 Tupac quotes for positivism

Ah, Tupac Shakur – the greatest rapper to have existed in the history of rap music. He still lives in our hearts to this day. Not just a rapper but a whole personality on his own. Tupac made a mark on the music industry in a very short time. 

His music is available on almost all online paid and free streaming services. However, you may have issues trying to access his music due to geolocation restrictions. The best workaround is to download a good VPN that allows you to change your location so you can easily access all of the music content you want. Try the VPN music unblocked by VeePN to access all of Tupac’s greatest hits easily. 

Have you ever wondered what made Tupac the legendary artist that he is? Let’s look at some facts that even we didn’t know before we did our research for this article: 

1. He wasn’t born in West Coast 

Born in New York City, Tupac Shakur was raised in the East Harlem neighborhood. Considering that he later played a role in igniting a blood feud between the West Coast and the East Coast, this may come as a surprise. In 1988, he relocated to California.

2. He started his career underground 

In the end, he became one of the most popular hip-hop artists in the world, but he had to work hard to get there. Before he became a solo artist, his career began as a backup dancer and MC for the hip-hop group Digital Underground.

3. His mother did jail time 

Afeni, Tupac Shakur’s mother, was in jail when she was pregnant with him. Before she gave birth, she was acquitted of all charges. More than 150 charges were brought against her on the basis of her membership in the “Black Panther Party“, which had been found guilty of conspiring with the government of the United States.

They were all acquitted of all 156 accusations in the “Panther 21 trials,” which were referred to in the media.

Neither his mother, Afeni Shakur, nor his biological father, Billy Garland, were members of the Black Panther Party.

4. He used to move around alot 

While growing up, Tupac couldn’t lead a normal and steady existence. A lack of resources forced the family to relocate frequently.

Tupac moved to Baltimore in 1984, and he was a decent student despite the circumstances. The “Baltimore School for the Arts,” where his talent allowed him to excel further, was his next step after successfully completing the second year of high school.

5. He was once an actor 

Tupac Shakur performed in a play called “A raisin in the sun” when he was barely 12 years old. The Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, hosted this performance.

The Broadway premiere of A Raisin in the Sun, a well-known play, took place in 1959. Langston Hughes’ poem “Harlem” inspired the title.

The performance served as a fundraiser for Jesse Jackson’s presidential campaign, which is noteworthy.

6. He studied art in detail 

Although he was raised in a harsh neighborhood, Tupac was exposed to poetry and even practiced ballet.

To be able to link his rap to poetry after becoming renowned and selling millions of albums was made possible by his exposure to Shakespeare and other poetry.

During his career, Tupac portrayed the Mouse King in “The Nutcracker” and Shakespeare’s plays.

7. MC New York was one of his names 

He used to go by the moniker “MC New York” since he was so proud to be from the East Coast, specifically New York.

Everyone knows he altered it to “2pac,” a nod to his initial name, as soon as his solo albums started being released.

This was back when he was living in Baltimore at the time.

8. He liked Irish music

Everyone knows Tupac was a multifaceted artist. There were a slew of unexpected features about him.

Tupac was a big fan of Irish music, which is an interesting truth about him.

From Kate Bush to Sinead O’Connor to Culture Club and U2 when he was a teen on, his favorite Irish pop artists were always on the radio for him.

9. He lived in Marin city

In other words, Tupac was a New Yorker at heart who made his home in Baltimore.

How did Tupac become the most popular West Coast rapper at that time?

Marin City, a ghetto-style community immediately above San Francisco, was where his family lived before he became famous.

10. He was engaged to Rashida’s sister 

Tupac Shakur’s  bond with Quincy Jones’ second daughter Kidada serves as further proof that things weren’t all horrible.

So this is Rashida’s sister, the one who was enraged by Tupac’s allegation that her father was a rapist.

Kidada referred to Tupac as “the love of my life” at the time of his death, and they were engaged.

There you go, these are ten facts about Tupac that you probably didn’t even know about as a fan. It’s very interesting information and the next time you use a good VPN to access his music, you can give more context to his raps. Since rap music is very raw and based on real life events, this information can fuel your understanding of who Tupac Shakur really was.

Deon ”Big D The Impossible” Evans Tears Open His Vault of Unreleased Tupac Songs (Interview)

Deon ''Big D The Impossible''Evans
Deon ''Big D The Impossible''Evans

In today’s music industry, most record producers just don’t get the shine they deserve because of controversial industry politics. Deon Evans is among them. Deon Evans is a multi-platinum record producer who is best known for beat-making for the late Tupac Shakur. His claim to fame is producing “Brenda’s Got a Baby” on Tupac’s 1991 debut album, 2Pacalypse Now.

In 1992, 2Pacalypse Now hit No. 34 on the Billboard 200 and No. 13 on the Top R&B / Hip-Hop Albums Chart, while “Brenda’s Got a Baby” made it to No. 23 on the Hot R&B / Hip-Hop Singles Chart and No. 3 on the Hot Rap Singles Chart. Under the moniker “Big D the Impossible,” Deon produced several multi-platinum hit records for Tupac, including “Changes” and “Ghetto Gospel,” which were later remixed and released on Tupac’s posthumous albums.

Deon Evans began making beats at the age of 14 and was trained by DJ and long-time friend, Vernal “Sleepy V” Daudson, Chris “CJ Flash” Jordan and David “DJ Fuze” Elliot. At the age of 17, Deon was introduced to Money B (of Digital Underground) who was also in the early stages of his career. At 19, Deon was making beats at a professional level. Deon’s brother James (Evans), introduced him to Jeffery “Clever Jeff” Jones – in which the pair began making beats together in Berkley, CA. Big D was later acquainted with Greg “Shock G” Jacobs, Atron Gregory and Jimmy “Chopmaster J” Dwight. Deon finally met Tupac Shakur at a Raw Fusion concert which proceeded on to both of them working together throughout Shakur’s short-lived rap career.

Deon sat down with us (originally published in The Beat Liinx Magazine) and discussed the most memorable highlights of his career, including working with the late Tupac Shakur. He spoke about working on the unreleased Tupac tracks “Fadeway” and “Straight Outta Richtown,” where Tupac was a ghost-writer for a female artist by the name of Yanni. Big D also took the time to talk about how he feels about his songs being remixed by other producers on posthumous Tupac albums, as well as the projects he is currently working on and his career plans for the future.

How did you meet Tupac?

Deon Evans: Tupac and I finally got to work with one another after we met at a Raw Fusion concert in Berkeley, CA after I had made a beat tape for Money B to give to Tupac for a show he had to do in Marin City two weeks earlier.

How many versions of “Ghetto Gospel” were recorded by Tupac?

Deon Evans: First off, there are a couple of cuts to a lot of Tupac songs. As far as “Ghetto Gospel” goes, the vocals weren’t lost, they where recorded over because Tupac wanted a different take of the song for a special that was going to air on MTV. He put his kid group on the song as well. I still have a copy of the original vocals for that song.

What song sample was used for the original version of “Black Cotton?”

Deon Evans: This song had different versions cut to it as well. The sample used was “Fragile” by Sting.

What is the name of the singer that is featured on the original version of “Changes,” and is the original title of the song “Changes 92’?”

Deon Evans: The singer on the original version of “Changes” was Poppy. As far as I know, it was the only title to that song.

In the original version of “Black Cotton,” the intro from “Pain” was used. Whose idea was it to use that intro (In reference to the intro: “I couldn’t help but notice your pain. My pain? It runs deep. Share it with me.” – Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)?

Deon Evans: That intro was Pac’s idea. He used to watch Star Trek.

Do you consider Tupac to be an influence to your work?

Deon Evans: Sure I do. When I was around Pac, I never understood why he would always want to be in the studio. That dude had a serious work ethic and it paid off for almost everybody but him. As for me, now I understand that was just that hustle and drive he had for his music and him wanting to share it with his friends to be on his level.

Tell us about a specific recording session you had with Tupac.

Deon Evans: On the session for “Pat Time Mutha,” Tupac had just gotten his wisdom teeth pulled and he came to the studio ready to work. We thought Pac was trying to prove something, but once again it was just his work ethic. He wrote his rap in minutes and then he went in to the booth and began to spit his rap. I mean literally spit his rap with blood and everything on the mic and around it. It was a unique experience. He got it done in three takes.

Talk to us about the unreleased track “Fadeway.”

Deon Evans: It was a song that he had done featuring Sean and Julian, a couple of friends of mine at the time. I don’t quite remember the name of the group, but the song was about people who wrote for the Pop Charts instead of giving you real stories from the heart will eventually disappear.

Speak to us about the unreleased song “Straight Outta Richtown.”

Deon Evans: “Straight Outta Richtown” was a song that was written by Tupac for Yanni – his female artist at the time.

How did you feel when you found out that “Dopefiend’s Diner” and “Resist the Temptation” were going to be remixed on The Best of 2Pac (2007)?

Deon Evans: When those songs were released, I was a little upset because “Dopefiend’s Diner” was a personal favorite of mine and the remix just didn’t do it any justice. In retrospect, I am never mad about remixes because sometimes they shed new light on a song that has never come out.

How did Tupac choose the beats that he wanted to rap over?

Deon Evans: It was a combination of both; if I had beats that Tupac liked, he wrote to them or we would go to the studio and make them there.

Speak to us about the recording session for “Flex.”

Deon Evans: “Flex” was cut in New York, where Majesty of the Live Squad had a sample he wanted to use. I sampled it and began building the beat around it. I wasn’t in the studio when the Outlawz got on the track or when the additional production was done to it.

You are credited for the song “Street Life.” Did you produce that record?

Deon Evans: I know of two different versions of “Street Life.” The one I produced and the other version with Snoop Dogg I didn’t produce.

How would you describe Tupac’s personality while working in the studio?

Deon Evans: I remember Tupac being a tear jerker, but he also took his time to spit his rhymes. I never really got the chance to check Tupac out [while he was] on Tha Row and he wanted it that way from one of my last conversations with him. I figured that he was just looking out for me.

How did you meet Money B and DJ Fuze?

Deon Evans: I met Money B, thru Verndale “Sleepy V” Daudson, a friend of mine that actually got me DeeJaying and producing music. Vern was working with Money B at his house and I stopped by one day and that’s how I met him. I met DJ Fuze thru Chris “CJ Flash” Jordan, another friend of mine that was also a DJ / Producer that got me into the game. Vern and Chris were from the same dance group. Fuze use to dance as well, but I knew him from DeeJaying. He helped me keep my DJ skills up and then when he and Money B formed their group MGM, they sold me my first drum machine and let me hang out and get my game on producing as well.

Have you been asked by Amaru to work on any future Tupac projects?

Deon Evans: Yes, they asked me to work on some of my old material, but due to politics not being right, it never happened.

What is the name of the singer that is featured on the original version of “Ghetto Gospel”?

Deon Evans: It was Poppy.

How was your relationship with Tupac while he was on Death Row Records?

Deon Evans: I didn’t keep in touch with Tupac much when he was on Death Row Records, but we did speak every now and then. The last conversation I had with Tupac was at a Digital Underground video shoot, where he and Marion “Suge” Knight showed up in their black and red Rolls Royce’s.

What was your reaction to Tupac getting shot in a drive-by in Las Vegas of 1996?

Deon Evans: When Pac got shot, I was working at UC Berkeley. I was shocked but didn’t feel like he was going to die. When he finally did die, I was at work again and then I was in tears because no matter what me and Pac went thru on a professional level, I had a lot of brotherly love for Pac. He was my friend and I never wished him dead for any reason.

What is your fondest memory of Tupac?

Deon Evans: One of the fondest memories I had of Pac was the time I had to rescue him from a mob of school kids on the set of Poetic Justice (1993) when Pac got noticed by a couple of kids. It wasn’t long before a whole mob of school kids were trying to get autograph’s and hand shakes and such so I literally had to pick-up Pac over my head and take him back to his trailer.

Being a multi-platinum record producer like your self takes a lot of hard work. What advice would you give someone who would like to follow in your footsteps?

Deon Evans: Honestly, the advice I would like to offer is work hard even when you are thinking you are working hard. Challenge yourself to work harder, also network, don’t just work so hard that you can’t work and make business moves to get some notoriety and connections. If you only wanna make beats, get yourself a manager to handle getting your beats off for you; also get a couple of attorney’s. Have just one and wonder or have two and save thousands.

What is your favorite song that you produced for Tupac?

Deon Evans: My Favorite song I produced by Pac was “Brenda’s Got a Baby” just because I originally made that beat for a girl I liked at the time. Needless to say, she turned me down, but that’s OK because it was my first top ten song I got on Pac (top three to be exact), so it worked out any way. Thank you Pac.

What artists in today’s rap game do you think could come close to having the same work ethic that Tupac had?

Deon Evans: I like Weezy just because he put’s out records every other week, plus m*#@! F*^%# he’s ill.

What can we expect from Deon Evans in the near future?

Deon Evans: You may see me on a couple of new records with Ne-Yo. For those that don’t know, I gave him that name. You will also see me on a couple of projects that my homie Brite Ware is hooking me up with. I am officially on my 2009 hustle at the labels trying to get mine in. I feel I never got any shine off Tupac’s records, so I am really trying to make sure my voice is heard this time around at all costs.

Thank you for taking the time to let us interview you Deon. We wish you the best of luck for the future. Do you have any last words for your fans?

Deon Evans: I would like to thank all of my fans (if any) for supporting Pac’s legacy and anyone else that I worked with. Back in March 2008, I had a conversation with Tupac’s sister, and it actually turned out to be a huge misunderstanding. And yes, since I am very humble, I would like to take the time and apologize to her and Afeni Shakur and everyone who thinks that I don’t got love for Pac. It’s a shame that he had to die for everyone to eat off of him, but I personally am grateful to have had the chance to grace his presence. Pac truly was a smart and talented gifted artist and human being, and a friend that I miss because we had a lot of great times together, along with Mopreme Shakur, Dana “Mouse Man” Smith, Man Man, Mike Cooley, the Outlawz, Ronniece, Poppa and Poppy, Jermamy, and Pee Wee. I will never forget those times. Before I go, I want to say what’s up to my kids, Akira and Kai, and the rest of my family and friends.

Throw Ya Hands Up Handwritten Lyrics.

2Pac has written the song “Throw Ya Hands Up” in blue ink on 2 pages of lined 8×10 notebook paper. The song is one of Pac’s finest protest songs and wasn’t released until 1995 on the “Pump Ya Fist” inspired by the Black Panthers album. An incredible piece of Tupac’s genius writing. Very good condition. Comes with a James Spence Authentication (JSA) Letter of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.

Exclusively for 2PacLegacy.net subscribers

The recording process for that album, titled One Nation, began at Can-Am Studios in Tarzana, California on June 14, 1996. 2Pac, along with the Outlawz, invited Brooklyn rap crew the Boot Camp Clik, Nice & Smooth’s Greg Nice, The Luniz’s Numskull, Asu and Capital LS of the New Jersey-based group Rumpletilskinz. Pac, who intended to drop numerous volumes of One Nation, also had plans to reach out to superstars like Nas, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Scarface, Outkast, E-40, and others to contribute to the project and join his mission to create unity and peace within the culture. Unfortunately, those plans would never fully materialize.

As Tupac said: ''I was born on the east coast, I love the east coast.'' He collected rap artists from the East coast and the recording session that wanted to issue. This session the called ''One Nation''

“‘Pac felt like New York people wasn’t really fucking with him, and Tek and Steele was like, they had fucked with him,” Buckshot said. It would be the liner notes of Smif-N-Wessun’s debut album, Dah Shinin’ and subsequent shout outs of, “Keep Ya Head Up” that would ultimately unite the two parties. But unlike most instances involving those who would one day like to work with Tupac musically, ‘Pac was the one who initially reached out.

“‘Pac called the studio one night; we’re in the studio, doing the album with Heltah Skeltah,” Buckshot recalled. “He like, ‘Yo, I want you to come out, what you doing two days from now? I want you to come out here and do an album with me… I’m sitting here with Greg Nice right now, we eating chicken.’ And I was laughing and he said, ‘Fly out,’ and I said, ‘We there.’”
Footage was recently released showing the two camps meeting outside of the airport. Tupac met up with Boot Camp Clik personally, as he and the Outlawz greeted the New York super group upon exiting the limo sent for them.

A handwritten letter to 'Big Lock' (which has been reported as unearthed by XXL) revealed that Tupac was planning a collaborative album with artists from different parts of the country for an all-region project called ONE NATION.
