Who is Coolio?
Coolio was an American rapper who became popular in the middle and late 1990s. In 1987, the rapper released his first single, “Whatcha Gonna Do?” This led to a record deal with Tommy Boy Records, and in 1994, he released his first solo album, It Takes a Thief.

It was the U.K.’s second best-selling single of 1995. The song won him a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 1996 Grammys.
He put out four albums between 2001 and 2008 that didn’t do well on the charts. “Coolio.com,” “El Cool Magnifico,” “The Return of the Gangsta,” and “Steal Hear” were the names of these websites.
In 2008, he hosted “Cookin’ with Coolio,” an online cooking show. In January 2012, he came in second place on the Food Network’s “Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off.”
