Coolio - It Takes a Thief
 
Coolio is not often mentioned in serious hip hop circles but this album was actually quite good. Most you little faggots probably hadn't heard of Coolio before he achieved celebrity status, and consequently immediately dismissed any possibility of him having released any good albums. I remember back in my early high school years me and my fellow thugz and playaz used to bump this shit quite joyfully, while we were doing drive bys and shit. There were a good few jams on this record which became quite memorable amongst our posse. Some good memories here when I recently knocked the dust off this one.

So you mean to tell me you fuckin with a bald-headed, ol' fat, lumpy, droopy, crack baby look-a-like, cisco drinkin, loud, ignorant,
fucked-up teeth, stank hoodrat, won't down, once-a-month bleedin, butthead, swap-meet, AFDC, leaned-over tennis shoe, cigarette butt baggin bitch? Nigga what's wrong wit you?

I like Coolio but i didn't like It Takes A Thief. I like a few songs like Fantastic Voyage, County Line, Mama I'm In Love With A Gangsta, Can O Corn. I used to have his Gangsta's Paradise album and it sucks too. I haven't heard his other albums. He's a good rapper though. Noel411, have you heard him on WC and The Madd Circle's Quick Way Out song on Trespass soundtrack? That's a tight song.

I would have heard that song but I don't remember it at all. I had the Trespass soundtrack on cassette about 15+ years ago. I haven't heard it since back then.

I actually think Gangsta's Paradise is a pretty good album too.

Where did that story about Coolio visiting a high school in Cali and shitting in a classroom closet high on crack come from anyone remember?

I like his Ooh La La La video. He had some cute girls in that video.

coincidently this is the first rap album I bought when I first began listening to hip-hop back then.
It has more sentimental values for me but nevertheless its still a good album.
