Artis Ivey Jr. is een Amerikaanse rapper die bij het grote publiek beter bekend staat als Coolio.



Na zijn middelbare school ging hij meteen de muziek in, echter moest hij een pauze inlassen om van zijn verslaving aan cocaïne af te komen. Nadat hem dat was gelukt keerde hij in 1994 weer terug in de muziekwereld.


Hij bracht in 1994 zijn debuutalbum Takes A Thief uit. De single Fantastic Voyage, afkomstig van dat album, is zijn eerste hit.


In 1995 brengt hij de single Gangsta’s Paradise uit. De platenmaatschappij was bang dat het nummer zou floppen, maar dankzij de film Dangerous Minds wordt het een wereldhit. Hij ontving er een Grammy Award voor.


In 1998 brengt hij het album My Soul uit. Het is echter geen succes en dan gaat het privé ook minder met hem. Zo komt hij in aanraking met justitie.


In 2002 richt hij zijn eigen platenlabel op en bracht het album El Cool Magnifico uit.


Coolio deed in 2004 mee in de Comeback Show in Duitsland, waarin hij een nieuw platencontract probeerde te krijgen.


Hij heeft het openingslied gemaakt voor de Nickelodeon komedieserie Kenan & Kel.


Songtekst

Everybody listen up 'cause I'm about to give my speak on
Fools be trippin' when it's time to get their freak on
Runnin' round town, puttin' it down
Without no protection, funny erection
When it's time for selection, what's your direction?
Before you make a choice you betta do some inspection
If you don't know my aim and don't know my game
Then let me explain now

Aisha slept wit' Mark and Mark slept wit' Tina
And Tina slept wit' Javier the first time he seen her
Javier slept wit' Loopy and Loopy slept wit' Rob
'Cause he was rollin' on beeds and had a good ass job
Rob slept wit' Lisa who slept wit' Steve and Steve was positive H.I.V.
What started off as a plan ended up in the plot
You betta cool your ass off 'cause it's too damn hot

Oh oh, it's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, lady
(Too hot)
Gotta run for shelter, gotta run out for shade

It's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, homie
(Too hot)
Gotta make some sense from this mess that we made

You're doin' everything momma told you not to do
Now you're tryin' to walk away 'cause you know it's true
Your sister can't explain and your mother's ashamed
To admit you both had the same last name
I don't have to ask you where you've been
'Cause the matches in your purse say 'Holiday Inn'
A mind is a terrible thing to waste that was the slogan
But now it's '95 and it's 'don't forget the Trojan'

Explained it to her momma before somebody get her got her
Help her to the game with those smooth talkin' niggas
'Love' is the word, so is 'remember' often heard
Latex, safe sex, you better learn to get hip to the facts
Before you be yacko, end up in a box on your back
Sometimes you axed me what you wanted, get what you got
Don't get up in the plot, it's too damn hot

Oh oh, it's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, lady
(Too hot)
Gotta run for shelter, gotta run out for shade

It's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, homie
(Too hot)
Gotta make some sense from this mess that we made

Another day in the city and know what a pity
Even though we did our duty, things are still lookin' shitty
Everybody in the pack stack tryin' to make some scraps
Walkin' in the rain but they ain't got no hat
Understand how we livin' in the 90's loc
Nuclear waste, cannibalism and pistol smoke
Sex, lies and videotape and rape
Just a little public crime can seal your fate

We need to do something drastic shit, it's gettin' tragic
And if you don't believe me, then go ask Magic
Everybody and their momma preaching abstinence
These kids ain't checking for abster shit
So put a condom in their hand and hope it don't bust
Another victim of the lust, in God, we trust
What started off as a plan ended up in the plot
Water can't cool it off 'cause it's too damn hot

Oh oh, it's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, lady
(Too hot)
Gotta run for shelter, gotta run out for shade

It's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, homie
(Too hot)
Gotta make some sense from this mess that we made

It's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, lady
(Too hot)
Gotta run for shelter, gotta run out for shade

It's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, homie
(Too hot)
Gotta make some sense from this mess that we made

Oh oh, it's too hot
(Too hot)
Too hot, lady
(Too hot)
Gotta run for shelter, gotta run out for shade

It's too hot
