Coolio was in England for a performance. He met up with a few college students backstage in VIP, and liked them so much, he decided to stop by their crib, do an acoustic cover of his smash hit "Gangsta's Paradise" and even cook them dinner! Did you know Coolio was a chef? Yeah, me neither!How long has it been since you've seen Coolio? His Gangsta's Paradise single hit the air waves in 1995, and let's be real, it's probably the main reason anyone bought the Dangerous Minds soundtrack. Coolio has always been instantly recognizable by his crazy braided up hairdo, which he still sports to this day.
