It Turns Out Coolio Will Not Release New Music On PornHub

Update: Coolio’s porn-based comeback is sadly not going to happen. He was just taking part in a video shoot.


Rolling Stone has spoken to Coolio, who says that TMZ disn’t quite get its facts straight. He says he’s not releasing new music through PornHub.

He admits he was taking part in a promo shoot for a song to promote PornHub, but it’s not his own “comeback” record.

He says: “They made that shit up completely. I didn’t talk to them about shit and they didn’t ask me any questions. That shit was a promo song for the website, that’s it!”

The song won’t feature on any official Coolio release and he’s keen to stress that he won’t put it out under his own name. The bad news for Coolio fans is that he says he probably won’t do another album, though there will be singles, he says.

The rapper also tells Rolling Stone: “I’m as good as anyone out there lyrically and conceptually and can go toe to toe with the best of them throughout history.”

He also explains why he doesn’t watch porn: “Because I am fuckin’ porn.”

In return, the site is providing him with porn stars to appear in a gaudy promo video, of which TMZ has behind-the-scenes footage.

In the clip, a voice from behind the camera can be heard telling the women to “smile, look like you’re having a good time” as Coolio pours water over them.

3. Coolio, who last released an album in 2009, was last seen cooking dinner for students after a gig in Preston.
