Representing North Canberra, Coolio was born and raised with hip hop. He was there when Herbie Hancock’s Rock It won a grammy, saw Breakdance and Beatstreet at the movies and was in high school during the golden age of hip hop. Taking a leaf out of Outkast’s book, Coolio seeks to bring the hip hop to any style he inhabits. Whatever he does will always be that pimp shit, that freshly baked schwarzwald kirsch kuchen shit.
Armed with a swag of original material, some help from Canberra’s music community, copious amounts of ginger beer and a house full of instruments, Coolio spent January 2009 recording his first album. The result is a mixture of hip hop, funk, disco and country that will get your toes tappin’, your hands clappin’ and start any party right. For the moment Coolio is solely a studio project but there are plans for him to tread the boards in the future. He will make a special appearance at the cd launch.
Be there y’all!!!
