In what was most likely a surreal night for a group of students from England's University of Central Lancashire, Coolio joined them at their house after a gig too cook dinner for them and perform a mellow, acoustic version of his hit song, "Gangsta's Paradise." One of the students in the video posted it on Reddit and described the evening:
"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.
Great guy though, had some very deep and profound thoughts on life and his time in the business."
