Following his passing on Wednesday, fans will get the opportunity to hear brand-new music that the late West Coast rapper Coolio had recorded.
The planned relaunch of the animated comedy “Futurama” will have lines and music by Coolio. Before he passed away at the age of 59, the musician recorded music for the program.
According to TMZ, “Futurama’s” executive producer David X. Cohen stated that he wanted to memorialize the late rapper by paying fair attention to Coolio’s character.
His character, who is friends with Hanukkah Zombie and Santa Claus Robot in the show, will return as the “Kwanzaa-bot.” The character debuted in “Futurama” in 2001.
Cohen, who recently recorded lines for the upcoming season of the program, told the media outlet that he was “shocked” to learn about the Grammy Award-winning rapper’s passing.
Coolio “looked and sounded terrific as always when laying down his lines,” he continued.
In addition, Coolio created a couple songs when he was a cast member of the program.
The investigation is “a non-suspicious death at this time,” according to Jeffrey Lee, public information officer for the Los Angeles Police Department, who spoke with Fox News Digital.
With the Grammy Award-winning song “Gangsta’s Paradise” and his 1994 debut album “It Takes a Thief,” the musician experienced phenomenal success.
Soon after the late rapper’s passing, celebrities started to pay him respect.
To memorialize the late rapper, the “Futurama” crew wants to give Coolio “the best send-off we can.”
