This video right here? This is of Coolio partying with random college kids from the University of Central Lancashire and rocking out to an acoustic version of “Gangsta’s Paradise.” He even stayed long enough to cook them dinner.
He was playing a gig in our city [Preston], and a few of my housemates were in the VIP after party. He came back to our house afterwards, and told us that he wasn’t busy that night so would come over and cook us dinner. We had Coolio’s Caprese Salad, Chicken á la Daaaamn, and Peach Crumble. We also videoed a cooking show (“Cookin’ with Coolio”). It was just as weird as it sounds.
Great guy though, had some very deep and profound thoughts on life and his time in the business.
Yea, dude is pretty cool. Not a lot of celebs would willingly hang out with a bunch of college kids who’d probably draw a dick on his face if he passed out with shoes on. Granted, what else does he have to do? Dangerous Minds was almost 20 years ago.
