Coleman released "Black in America" on the compilation album We're All in the Same Gang. It featured the hit anti-violence song that shares the album's name by the West Coast Rap All-Stars.

Coleman's sister, Irene, told City News Service that her brother was dedicated to working with young people and steering them from gangs.

The pickup driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
