Cohen has shared that Coolio recorded lines and delivered a freestyle rap in the booth for the show’s upcoming revival season just weeks ago.“Coolio was one of my favorite guests,” Cohen said. “He was always totally upbeat, and genuinely enjoyed coming in to record as his character Kwanzaa-bot.”According to Cohen, the Futurama episode in which Kwanzaa-bot appears will be dedicated to Coolio and feature him rapping over the closing credits, in order to give him “the best send-off we can.”Coolio died on Wednesday (September 28) at the age of 59 after suffering a cardiac arrest.
