“Gangster’s Paradise” rapper Coolio was reportedly busted earlier today (March 6) at an airport with crack cocaine, according to TMZ.
The Compton-bred rapper, who has been taken in by LAX authorities, was apparently arrested after drugs were found on his person during a routine security check. It is also believed that he got into an altercation with the screener that discovered the controlled substance.
Coolio was on his way to catch a flight for a concert appearance in Tulsa, OK where he shared the bill with fellow old school emcees Tone Loc and Shock G of Digital Underground.
Since scoring fame as a recording artist in the 90s, the Grammy-award winning rapper has gone on to appear on several reality televison shows including Fox’s “Celebrity Boot Camp,” in which he won, and his own show “Coolio’s Rules” on the Oxygen network, as well as his own online cooking series “Cooking With Coolio.” – Elan Mancini
