I first became aware of Coolio because of the video for 1, 2, 3, 4 (Sumpin’ New). In it, he is trying to get to a party, and every kind of transportation he uses has problems. He winds up on a Big Wheel, still hurrying to get there. For me, this was both the most imaginative rap video I’d seen since Parents Just Don’t Understand, and evidence that “serious” rap performers might also have a sense of humor.

59 is awfully young for any performer to pass away. It’s sad.
