Coolio busted at LAX
'Gangsta's Paradise' rapper arrested on drug charges

http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/03/06/coolio.arrested/ind...

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Grammy-winning rapper Coolio was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday on suspicion of possessing illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia, according to a spokeswoman for the airport.

Coolio, whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr., was taken to the Van Nuys Division station for booking, the spokeswoman said.

A source at the airport's public relations division confirmed the arrest but declined to be named.

Coolio is best known for his 1995 hip-hop hit "Gangsta's Paradise."

3. He supposedly was a reformed crackhead
I trust that he did overcome that

He was the anti-drug rapper back in the day.

6. Nah, Flav was more or less Chuck D's crazy friend.
Flav was basically just Chuck's hype man.

5. Coolio
For real?

Well,Coolio has money to get himself off the hook,
so I'm sure he has no worries.lol

Seen his reality show a few times,wasn't very impressed though.

He kinda seems like a boring person.

But,I did like his music,back in the day.
