Dear Coolio,

Sometimes mid-90s nostalgia hits you like a ton of bricks and inevitably the Coolio record comes out and we long for the days when MTV actually played music videos and when music videos were actually good.

Just like your fantastic funk-revival masterpiece "Fantastic Voyage" over here:

Nostalgia always leads way to the inevitable question of, "Where are they now?" And a quick search on Wikipedia reveals a sad, sad incident that happened very recently:
The hip-hop star was performing at Staffordshire University's Students' Union on Wednesday (25 Feb 09) night, when he decided to leap into the crowd.

But the audience parted, sending the star crashing to the floor. The students them reportedly mobbed the rapper, stealing his bandana, jewellery and shoes before the star was rescued by the venue's security team.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen, Coolio!

They took your rings, they took your rolex, damn, what's next? Possibly your dignity. What a shame. You do not deserve this fate, Coolio.

You will be in our nostalgic hearts. Always.



I know, I know, that "... damn, what's next" line is from Warren G's classic, "Regulate."
