Coolio’s Music Catalog Worth $6M

Coolio’s Music Catalog Worth $6M.  The legendary rapper died recently. It was another devastating blow for hip hop.

Coolio Was Famous For His Hit Song “Gangsta’s Paradise”

Coolio’s Music Catalog Worth $6M. Artis “Coolio” Ivey Jr. was 59-years-old. Apparently, Coolio had a heart attack.

He was visiting a friends home at the time. Most knew Coolio for his famous song “Gangsta’s Paradise.”

However, most people did not know Coolio sampled Stevie Wonder’s song “Pastime Paradise.”

And, Coolio was a West Coast pioneer rapper. Although, Coolio left the spotlight, his songs remained popular.


Now, come to find out his music is worth millions. According to AfroTech, Coolio’s music streams jumped 260 percent.

In the week he died there were 14 million new streams. I would say Coolio’s wealth increased after his death.

Therefore, Coolio’s estate us worth much more today. So, what does that mean for his heirs? Did Coolio leave behind a will?

Does the record label benefit from his Royalties? How will his wealth be distributed?

On another note, this same report mentioned Coolio may have sold his music catalog in 2013. Of course, we don’t have details yet.

But I am sure if Coolio sold his music catalog it will be revealed soon. Especially, now since his music is streaming again.

Nevertheless, Coolio’s death has created more wealth.
