The greatest legends in music have a habit of dying too young. Thankfully, their music lives one. When an album is released after an artist's death, it gives the world a chance to connect with them again and for their message to live on.

Rapper Coolio, real name Artis Leon Ivey Jr, died on September 28, 2022, at the age of 59, and less than a year later his first posthumous album, ‘Long Live Coolio,’ has been announced. Though the album is set to be released later this year, the first single ‘TAG, You It’ featuring Too $hort and DJ Wino has been released along with a music video with footage from before the 'Gangster's Paradise' rapper's passing. The video sees the late rapper and Too $hort at a boxing ring watching a group of women tackling each other. Coolio will also appear posthumously in the return of 'Futurama' as the character Kwanzaa-bot.
