Coolio fans have a brand-new single from the late rapper to listen to as Tha Chill, of Compton’s Most Wanted, pays respect and pure homage to his long-time homie as he drops the second single to his upcoming Ultimate Gangsta Shit. The new song, “Moparcin,” arrived on Monday (October 31) via Boomdocz Productions.
Directed by Westlyfe, the song interpolates Midnight Star’s “No Parking On The Dance Floor”, as Tha Chill says of his latest production, “I flipped the no parking bassline and word up drum energy, there are no samples, and I got my boy MOFAK on the talk box.”
On working with the legendary Coolio, Tha Chill exclusively told Chad Kiser, “Coolio always has that G vibe to me and when I got the chance to produce and rock with my big bro of 30 years I had to keep that same energy. I’m all about keeping us OGs legacy alive because it’s people that still want it and miss it. So, we did the joint and called my boy Big Ray [Westlyfe] in and a bunch of lowriders and homies like Wino, Kurupt, Taz from Tha Liks , BG Knocc Out, and more and did the video. Me, personally, I had a blast doing this jam and the video. Shot out to the culture, that’s what it’s for. MOPARCIN!”
According to Coolio’s longtime manager Jarez, the “Fantastic Voyage” rapper was found dead by a friend on September 28, after he excused himself to the bathroom and never returned. Paramedics arrived minutes later and pronounced him dead at the scene.
Coolio rose to fame with 1995’s monumental “Gangsta’s Paradise” featuring L.V., which became the top-selling single of that year 1995, as well as one of the top-selling singles of all time with 6 million copies worldwide. The lead single for the movie Dangerous Minds, starring Michelle Pfeiffer was nominated for Record of the Year at the Grammy Awards and won the Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance.
Earlier this month, Tha Chill dropped “Bankroll”, featuring the bay area ambassador and Mount Westmore group member E-40, Le$Laflame & Dovble R.
The upcoming album Ultimate Gangsta Shit features E-40, Glasses Malone, Squeak Ru, J-Dee of Da Lench Mob, and others, with additional production from D Ace and Rob Tee.
