Job: Rap Artist
Coolio is a multi-platinum selling, Grammy award winning rap artist. In 1994, after the success of his debut album, It Takes a Thief, Coolio hit the US mainstream. In 1995 he made Gangsta's Paradise for the movie Dangerous Minds which became one of the most successful rap songs of all time.
To date, Coolio has sold over 33 million records globally and has performed in concerts to adoring fans in Africa, Israel, Russia, Japan, Thailand, Brazil, Australia, Turkey and throughout Europe. In the diversified hip hop industry, Coolio is one of the few rap artists who has been able to garner mainstream success and critical acclaim.
Coolio imposed is inimitable gangsta style upon the Celebrity Big Brother 6 house in 2009 when the US rap star was given a swear ban, but also showed his softer side as he cried when Big Brother let him watched Obama's inauguration into the White House.
He caused many a disagreement in the house over his comments on women's rights, racism and deliberately acting up to get his housemates to nominate him.
He reduced fellow housemate Michelle Heaton to tears, had a fractious relationship with Ulrika Jonsson, and admitted to having the hots for Mutya Buena whilst in the house. He was evicted on final night in third place.
