"What's goin' on in the kitchen?" – Coolio randomly cooks dinner for students and then performs Gangsta's Paradise with them
Does life get any more bizarre than this? Probably not.
According to one Irish Redditor, Lorcantc, the rapper Coolio was in Preston recently, gigging at the University of Central Lancashire. Following on from his performance at the student union, the American star then surprised some of the students by offering to come to their house the next night to cook dinner for all of them.
Well, he does have his own ‘Cookin’ With Coolio’ YouTube channel after all...
“He was playing a gig in our city, and a few of my housemates were in the VIP after party. He came back to our house afterwards, and told us that he wasn't busy that night so would come over and cook us dinner. We had Coolio's Caprese Salad, Chicken á la Daaaamn, and Peach Crumble. We also videoed a cooking show ("Cookin' with Coolio"). It was just as weird as it sounds.”
“But where did Coolio get all of the ingredients from, did he bring the food with him?” one fellow Redditor enquired.
“Nope, everyone had to go to the shop with him. We went to Tesco with Coolio” was Lorcan’s excellent response.
We don’t really know what to say.
After the meal there was only ever going to be one post-dinner form of entertainment, with Coolio encouraging the surrounding students to accompany him on guitar and even sing backing vocals.
We’ll say nothing about not quite getting the guitar chords right, or the multiple vertical videos on display, but what we absolutely cannot forgive is a pair of mismatched socks. It’s just not on Lorcan. It's. Just. Not. On.
Coolio and his upside-down spider legs hair didn’t seem to mind too much though as he expertly rapped his way through his most famous hit single from start to finish.
Coolio as fu*k:
The student gaff has since been fittingly renamed ‘Gangsta’s Paradise,’ and the occupants are supposedly hoping to contact the local council about having a commemorative blue plaque erected at some stage in the future.
If ever a building deserved a plaque, it's most certainly this one.
