Kinda old news but....

Stolen from
By Dan Whitcomb, Los Angeles and Me, here.

GRAMMY-WINNING rapper Coolio was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport today on suspicion of possessing drugs, police said.
The 45-year-old rapper, whose real name is Artis Levon Ivey Jr, was taken into custody at an LAX terminal at mid-morning after he was found with the narcotics, a Los Angeles police spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman said she had no further details on the arrest but celebrity website TMZ reported that he was found with crack cocaine while going through security before boarding a Southwest Airlines flight.

Coolio first gained fame in 1995 with the hit single Gangsta's Paradise and multi-million selling album of the same name. His follow-up albums have failed to match that success.

The rapper has since appeared on several reality TV shows, including Celebrity Fear Factor, and hosted the online program Cookin With Coolio.

Cookin (crack) with the Cool.

Coolio was due to do a show in Melbourne at Billboard The Venue this Friday the 13th,
with local DJ Mafia supporting... and for MAFIA, I am saddened.

...and in other news, they have knocked down the Berlin Wall.
