Coolio

Artis Leon Ivey Jr. (born August 1, 1963), better known by the stage name Coolio, is an American musician, rapper, actor, and record producer.

He recorded two singles in 1987, titled “Watcha Gonna Do” and “You’re Gonna Miss Me“. Neither single was successful, but Coolio had made connections in the Los Angeles rap scene, and, in 1991, ended up joining the group WC and the Maad Circle, led by rapper WC. He had a few verses on the group’s debut album, Ain’t a Damn Thang Changed, including on the single “Dress Code”. The album was regionally successful, but did not make much impact on a national scale.

In 2009, Coolio appeared as a housemate on Celebrity Big Brother. He later went to to appear on Ultimate Big Brother in 2010, where he was removed from the house for unacceptable behaviour towards Nadia Almada and others in the house. In January 2012, he was one of eight celebrities participating in the Food Network reality series Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, where he represented the Music Saves Lives organization. He came in second place with a Zagat score of 23 out of 30, losing to Lou Diamond Phillips. As runnerup, he was awarded $10,000 for his charity.

Coolio was featured on the March 5, 2013, episode of the ABC reality program Wife Swap, and his girlfriend at the time left him soon after the program was taped.

On June 30, 2013, he appeared alongside comedienne Jenny Eclair and Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden on UK game show Tipping Point: Lucky Stars. He came second. Also on June 30, Coolio voiced a wax figure of himself on Gravity Falls. (Source: Wikipedia)
