    *Rapper Coolio had been working on a studio album prior to his death and his estate plans to release it later this year. 

    The posthumous album is titled “Long Live Coolio” and the visual for the first single, “TAG ‘You It,’” dropped Friday, featuring Too $hort and DJ Wino. You can watch the video for the raunchy track below. 

    According to NBC News, the video marks the last piece of visual content Coolio appeared in before his death from cardiac arrest last September at age 59.

    Coolio (born Artis Leon Ivey Jr.) allegedly suffered from severe asthma for many years and his friends reportedly think this may have contributed to his death in September.

    Sources told TMZ that Coolio “struggled” with the lung condition and according to the American Heart Association, persistent asthma may increase the risk of heart rhythm disorders.

    Coolio was found unconscious on the bathroom floor of a friend’s house in Los Angeles on Sept. 28. Paramedics reportedly pronounced him dead at the scene.

    “We are saddened by the loss of our dear friend and client, Coolio, who passed away this afternoon,” Sheila Finegan, Coolio’s talent manager, told CNN at the time. “He touched the world with the gift of his talent and will be missed profoundly. Thank you to everyone worldwide who has listened to his music and to everyone who has been reaching out regarding his passing. Please have Coolio’s loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.”

    Coolio was reportedly cremated in a private ceremony with no funeral service.
