    Default Rapper Coolio pleads guilty to drug charges, heads to rehab

    Coolio Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges, Heads to Rehab - E! Online

    While it may not technically be a "Gangsta's Paradise," rapper Coolio is skipping jail time for rehab, so things are looking up.

    The 45-year old entertainer, born Artis Leon Ivey Jr., pleaded guilty to a felony drug charge, as well as misdemeanor counts of battery and possession, stemming from his March 6 arrest at Los Angeles International Airport. Airport security found cocaine and a smoking device in Coolio's luggage, and once they attempted to open the bag, authorities claim that the former star grabbed one of the screener's arms to halt the search.

    On Friday, the "Fantastic Voyage" hitmaker was ordered to complete an 18-month drug diversion education and treatment program.

    Coolio will be eligible to ask a judge for a dismissal if he can provide proof of the program's completion and, more importantly, demonstrate that his rehab stint was successful.
    Coolio is due back in court on September 28 for a progress check.

    Hope he can get his shit together- I'll always have a soft spot for Coolio. He was part of the soundtrack to my middle school years.

    Holy shit, he's still around?

    I like Gangsta's Paradise. I couldn't name more than 5 of his songs though if you had a gun to my head.

    Heh, thanks for posting that video. I forgot about it. MTV seriously needs to play music videos again. Coolio was part of the soundtrack to my middle school years too

    Coolio was awesome! This part of the video always cracked me up:


    OMG- I had no idea that Coolio was on The Muppets- this is hilarious!

    ^Haha, you too?

    I remember in 7th or 8th grade his song '1, 2, 3, 4' was REALLY big and you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing it and one of my teachers used to let us listen to the radio while we were doing group activities and one day she turned on the radio and what do you know, all of a sudden "1, 2, 3, 4 GET YOUR WOMAN ON THE FLOOR- GOTTA GOTTA GET UP GET DOWN" blasts from the speakers and she just awkwardly shut the radio off and sat back down.

    Of course we all giggled madly.

    The brain doesn't need blood. It just needs to be kept wet.

    I loved Gangsta's Paradise and Fantastic Voyage. He's like high school, it was fun while it lasted but it isn't something that should happen again.
