Fans of Futurama will still be able to hear Coolio because the late rapper recorded segments for the animated series before his death. This will allow the show’s creators to give Coolio and his character a fitting farewell. Futurama executive producer David X. Cohen told TMZ that he was shocked to learn of Coolio’s death, especially given that he had only recently finished filming the upcoming season.
For those unaware, Coolio has previously appeared on the show as the Kwanzaa-bot, a counterpart to Chanukah Zombie and Santa Claus Robot. He made his debut back in 2001. The rapper took control of the recording session by creating tracks for the episode on location, according to David, who also said the rapper looked and sounded great as always while recording his lines .

To give him “the best farewell we can,” the Futurama crew will dedicate their episode to him and get Coolio to rap over the epilogue. David adds: “Coolio was one of my favorite guests. He was always super optimistic and really enjoyed taking on Kwanzaa-bot as his character.” David says Coolio also shared that he’s picked up a new hobby during the pandemic… sewing!
According to case information from the county coroner, an autopsy performed on Coolio Thursday did not reveal the cause or manner of his death and an additional investigation is being conducted. Sheila Finegan, Coolio‘s talent manager said: “We are saddened by the loss of our dear friend and client Coolio, who passed away on Wednesday afternoon. He touched the world with the gift of his talent and we will miss him dearly. Please have Coolio’s loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.”
