People from all around the world are mourning the loss of rapper Coolio — including some of hip hop’s biggest names.

Fellow rapper Ice Cube, who collaborated on numerous songs with the Grammy winner, took to Twitter on Wednesday night to pay tribute to the late musician.

“This is sad news. I witness first hand this man’s grind to the top of the industry,” he tweeted alongside reports of Coolio’s passing, adding “Rest In Peace.”

Another one of the “Fantastic Voyage” rapper’s colleagues, Vanilla Ice, expressed his sadness after hearing about the loss.

“I’m freaking out I just heard my good friend Coolio passed away,” the “Ice Ice Baby” rapper tweeted. The pair toured together last year.

Actor Martin Lawrence also took to Twitter to send his “deepest condolences and prayers” to the rapper’s family.

Questlove shared a photo of Coolio — whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr. — on his Instagram, writing, “Peaceful Journey Brother.”

The rapper appeared on “Hot Ones” back in 2016.
