Although Coolio’s body was cremated, his family has elected to have an extravagant headstone made to remember the late rapper. The memorial plaque was made by Cemetery Tim. The designer has also worked to honor other celebrities.
The headstone reads, “I’m home now in gangsta’s paradise.” It includes several images of the star as well as a literal star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It is not unusual for a family to elect to honor a loved one who was cremated with such a gesture. Clearly, Coolio’s family was proud of one of his most popular songs! The headstone has been placed in a private location.
