Coolio, cooking?

Remember Coolio? C'mon how can you forget "Gangsta's Paradise?" More importantly, how can you forget that hair with the buckwheat braids sticking out like demon stubs? Speaking of demons, I haven't seen Coolio since he appeared as a demon in Charmed. Well it seems Coolio is making a comeback of sorts. This time he's not in the recording studio but in the kitchen. That's right - the kitchen. Coolio now has his own cooking show called what else, "Cookin' with Coolio." Recipes have that Compton twist to their names - "Tricked Out Tilapia," and "Finger Lickin', Rib Stickin', Fall-Off-the-Bone-and-Into-Your-Mouth Chicken." Okay, now that does sound kinda appetizing, but maybe it's because I'm hungry right now.

Anyway, in an interview with Newsweek, the 44-year-old rapper told how he got the idea for his cooking show: "I've been cooking for a while; I even got a little formal training. Me and my cousin were playing around in the kitchen one day and I said, "Damn, what if we had a cooking show?" It became something we realized could be a reality." And so thus another cooking show was born and raised - or should I say braised? By the way, Coolio is still doing some studio time. He expects to drop another album, "Steal Hear" soon. Suffering from empty nest syndrome since his six kids are now all grown, the divorced Coolio and his "new woman" are also working on a clothing line.

What is he trying to do? Catch up with Jay-Z?

Here is a clip from Cookin' with Coolio as he does his own take of a Caprese salad:
