The westside version of Flava Flav, a winning bully named Coolio, did the German version of a funky little reality TV series called Big Brother. The rapper, who has offended some of his fellow housemates with his scandalous conduct, made an equally bad impression when he appeared on

It's supposedly the same Coolio, who's built in Compton, California, in 1963... who's a Grammy Award-winning rapper and actor. And you know him from the 1995 hit single "Gangsta's Paradise", which appeared on the infamous soundtrack for the movie Dangerous Minds.
Coolio's featured on DJ Tomekk's 2001 LP "Return of Hiphop", but if you really want some dope Westcoast beats, you could google...
