    Default R.I.P. Coolio

    https://variety.com/2022/music/news/...er-1235387456/

    This joint right here was life changing for me when I heard it. An all star Blondie collab featuring five extraordinarily talented yet underrated lyricists in Coolio, Prodigy, U-God, Havoc, and Inspectah Deck. Having two of my biggest lyrical influences in U-God & Prodigy spittin' back to back was mind boggling enough as it is, but the energy Coolio set this joint off with was remarkable, setting the groundbreaking, smash mouth tone for a meeting of top tier minds to obliterate this remix. Rest In Power to the legends, Coolio, and Prodigy.

    Rest In Peace to him. Was bumping Monstars' Anthem a few days ago and was bumping W.C. And The Maad Circle a few weeks ago. He had a great string of hit singles in the nineties, had a Grammy and two platinum albums. He accomplished a lot.

    Loved his first album. One of my earliest hip hop albums I had back in high school. Second one was good too. Had huge commercial success for a while and managed to sustain some relevance for a lengthy period. Sad news.
    New instrumental track...

    Fantastic voyage was huge hit back in the day. Definite summer anthem in 94.

    I read that he had already lent his voice to the upcoming Futurama comeback. That show has aged better than The Simpsons.

    RIP to the legend, I remember watching fantastic voyage on MTV over and over like many of the other videos back in those times. It was definitely a variety though. Now they play the same show 23 1/2 hours every day. Going to the theater to see Dangerous Minds. I don't think I've heard any of LV's albums?
