The rapper, whose real name is Artis Levon Ivey Jr., was arrested after he was found with narcotics, reports Reuters.
Although police haven’t released details of the arrest, TMZ reports Coolio was arrested after a security screener discovered the rapper had crack cocaine on his person.
Apparently Coolio was about to board a Southwest Airlines flight to Tusla, Oklahoma, where he, along with Tone Loc and Shock G, are scheduled to perform.
Coolio first hit it big with his 1995 hit “Gangsta’s Paradise,” but these days he’s known for his reality TV appearances more than for his rhymes. Recent TV appearances include “Celebrity Fear Factor” and hosting “Cooking with Coolio.”
However, if Coolio goes to court on the drug charge, we're betting it won’t be “Judge Judy.”
