Last Night Coolio Cooked Dinner For A Bunch Of Students In Lancashire

I <3 Coolio.

1. This is Coolio.

He has sold 17 million albums worldwide.

2. Everyone knows he’s a pretty good rapper.

But lots of people don’t realise that he’s also a gourmet chef.

That’s right. Coolio’s got a cookbook. It’s called Cookin’ with Coolio.

In it, he refers to himself as “king of the kitchen pimps.” Its chapters are called things like: “SaladEatin’ Bitches”; “Appetizers for That Ass”; and “It’s Hard Out Here For A Shrimp.”

3. Last week, Coolio played a gig in Preston.

When he came off stage, University of Central Lancashire student Olivia Johnson-Aley asked him to come round for dinner.

And he did.

4. They ate Coolio’s Caprese Salad, Chicken á la Daaaamn and Peach Crumble.

“I not only learned how to sharpen a knife last night, but a lot of deep life lessons from Coolio,” said redditor lorcantc. “All whilst sipping from a bottle of Patrón.”

5. Then he did a cheeky acoustic performance of “Gangsta’s Paradise”.


6. Here it is.

Coolio, you’re the best.
