Coolio is back: on the stage and in the kitchen

Coolio is finally bringing his ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ to our shores. The Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling rapper is returning after visa issues forced cancellation of his tour last year. And if you're a fan of the guy, then no doubt you've heard about his rather excellent extra-curricular activities, too: Coolio is establishing his name as a celebriy chef. His recent success with his Cooking with Coolio show prompted his cookbook of the same name, which features lessons in how to cook in his newly created cuisines, ‘Blasian’ (Black Asian) and ‘Ghettalian’ (Ghetto Italian). Make no mistake: Coolio's getting ready to ‘C U When U Get There’.
