Coolio Arrested For Crack Possession At LAX

“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 television 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

    u knew something had to posses him to do his hair like that all these years. now we know what it was.

  • sealsaa

    He said that he wears his hair like that now because he’s suffering from male pattern baldness, which is why he always has a hat or scarf on. Now we know its the rock thats doing it to him.

  • cold

    stupid sonofabitch ! crack ?

  • tony grand$

    All jokes aside, Coolio admitted a few years back that he had struggled with drug & alcohol problems before & after he became famous. Then he claimed he cleaned himself up, started being all over the tv again, started trying to get his son in the biz, got arrested for that child support shit.
    So it’s just kinda sad to see such a “legend” go back to the same bullshit he tried to escape from. He’ll be straight though.

  • Fireforreal

    @tony gran$ Yeah I hope all addicts not just rappers get there shit together,but for real You got to be kidding me by saying that Coolio is a legend lol! Every old or was a star rapper doesn’t mean there a legend. Just like an album from the past that only had 4 good songs is not a classic.

    • tony grand$

      Well, that was the reason for the quotation marks actually, as in “not really, but…..”.

      I’m just giving respect to an older cat. & he’s from Cali, so I’m just showing love to a fellow Golden state warrior.

  • Prince Caesar

    Damn, first he gets robbed at his own he gets caught trying to sneak some crack on a plane. What the hell is wrong with this fool ? It’s sad to say, but, most rappers from the old school are broke crackheads. Flavor Flav is the only reformed crackhead. Not all of em’ are just some. That’s sad. Ya’ll need to look at guys like Ice-T and LL, guys that are legendary MC’s still out here getting that money.

  • Tre

    Damn Shame. I don’t know what makes a nigga smoke crack like you didn’t see what happen to previous crackheads. I never heard a good story about what typically happens to crackheads either. To dude who likes to take his Coughee on the plane… You probably shouldn’t tell the world wide web about it bruh.

  • lostgyrl

    You can’t be serious!!! Grow up already.
