what a terrible day

While watching nonstop coverage on the destruction of Florida by a cataclysmic hurricane overnight, I found solace in one thing:

“At least Coolio is still alive,” I kept telling everyone.

Artis Leon “Coolio” Ivey Jr (1963-2022)

Coolio was essentially the soundtrack to my childhood growing up in SoCal during the 90s. Gangsta’s Paradise still fucking kicks, in fact, all his shit is dope.

This is a terrible day in American history. Kids will read about “December 7th, 1941” and “September 11th, 2001”, but they will never read about “September 28th, 2022”: the day Florida got fucked up and Coolio died.

RIP Coolio

Never Forget 🇺🇸
