The 44- year-old star had collapsed outside his Beverly Hills condo after he suffered difficulty breathing while returning from a morning shopping trip, police claimed at the time.

The rapper, whose real name was Dwight Arrington Meyers, later died at Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the People.com reported.

Apart from the pulmonary embolism, which likely formed over the course of a long plane ride, the influential '90s rapper also suffered from heart disease and deep leg vein thrombosis, according to Craig Harvey, chief of the Los Angeles County department of coroner.

The coroner's report also stated, "manner of death: natural."
