Reps from the LAPD had no more details about the incident and arrest. However, TMZ recently reported that Coolio was going through a Southwest Airlines security screening, when the screener found the narcotics in his possession. It is also reported that Coolio was on his way to Tulsa, Oklahoma to perform with co-headliners Tone Loc and Shock G of the Digital Underground at the Flytrap Music Hall.
The one-time member of WC & The M.A.A.D. Circle ran into trouble in June of last year after he was arrested for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant stemming from driving with a suspended license and expired registration [click to read]. While he was able to make bail after that particular incident, these latest charges could see Coolio facing serious jail time.
Coolio looks like a crackhead LOL. He's a good rapper though but his albums suck to me. I've only heard his first 2 albums. That sucks that he got caught with drugs. Why was he driving with a suspended license and expired license plates tag last year? I don't understand these dudes. Use some damn common sense. Coolio should know better because he got kids. What kind of a example is he setting by doing ignorant shit?
