Coolio began rapping from a young age and performed in many local Los Angeles rap contests as a youth. He recorded two singles in the late 80s titled “Watcha Gonna Do” and “You’re Gonna Miss Me”. Neither single was successful but Coolio had made connections in the Los Angeles rap scene and ended up joining the group WC and the Maad Circle in 1991.Three years later Coolio signed to Tommy Boy Records and released his debut solo album It Takes a Thief. The album contained the single “Fantastic Voyage” which became Coolio’s breakout song. It peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 making it one of the biggest rap singles of the year. Overall the album was very successful peaking at #8 on the Billboard Hot 200 and being certified Platinum. The album received praise for bringing a humorous and lighthearted perspective to often violent and profane themes of typical gangsta rap.After the success of his debut Coolio became a legitimate rap star. In 1995 he orchestrated the song “Gangsta’s Paradise” for the movie Dangerous Minds. “Gangsta’s Paradise” which featured R&B singer L.V. would become one of the most successful rap songs of all time reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks. It was the #1 single of 1995 for all genres and was truly a global hit reaching #1 in the United States United Kingdom Ireland France Germany Italy Sweden Austria Netherlands Norway Switzerland Australia and New Zealand. The song also created some controversy when Coolio claimed that parody artist Weird Al Yankovic had not asked for permission to make his parody of “Gangsta’s Paradise” titled “Amish Paradise”
