LAS VEGAS – Rapper Coolio was arrested Friday on a warrant charging him with failure to appear in court on a traffic ticket almost two years ago. Coolio, 48, whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr., was a passenger in a vehicle officers stopped about 2:20 a.m. several blocks east of the Las Vegas Strip, Officer Laura Meltzer said. No one else in the car was arrested. It was not immediately clear if Ivey had a lawyer. His manager Susan Haber said she had not heard about the incident and had no comment. Ivey was sought on a warrant charging him with failure to appear on an illegal stop and driving without a license summons issued in June 2010.
Honest to goodness question, you think Coolio knows he's no longer the best rapper alive? Like, I know Gansta's Paradise stayed atop the Jamn 94.5 morning countdown for what seemed like forever, but the run did eventually end, I just feel like no one ever told Coolio.
Dude, you're almost 50 years old! Time to ditch the Rudy Huxstable pony tails, grow some real hair and start going by you're real name, Artis Leon Ivey Jr. You had as good a run as anyone's ever had, from Fantastic Voyage to Gangta's Paradise, to 1,2,3,4...but it's over. You've got more in common with your average AARP card holder now than you do with the Hip-Hop stars of today, plus you wouldn't want any part of these clowns anyway. You were hard, you didn't take shit from anyone, trying to keep up with panzies like Drake just aint worth it. It's time to move on, it's time to become Artis. I wanna remember the Coolio from the video below, not the aging, mostly out of touch, former Rapper who's currently engaged in projects like "Ghetto Hoes: Bitchez 'N The Hood 2 (for real).
