RIP to rapper Coolio, who won a Grammy back in 1995 for Gangsta’s Paradise. The 59-year-old was found unresponsive at a friend’s home before being declared dead by paramedics. It’s believed that he passed away from a heart attack.
Naturally, many tributes are coming in for the rapper. But one clip doing the rounds again is a 2013 video showing Coolio performing an acoustic version of Gangsta’s Paradise at a student digs in the UK. I remember hearing about this story at the time, and thought it was so cool (pun not intended). He even cooked a three-course meal for the students!
