Coolio to Auction Off His Entire Musical Catalogue Because He Wants to Work More on His Cooking Career

You will soon have the opportunity to own "Gangsta's Paradise": 123 of the rapper's songs are being auctioned off to fund his cooking career. He wants to write the follow-up to Cookin' With Coolio and launch an online cooking show. Expected to net him anywhere from $134,000 to $225,000, the auction winner would also get memorable tracks such as: "Fantastic Voyage," "C U When U Get There," and "Aw Here it Goes" (a.k.a. the theme song to Kenan and Kel). Kickstarter fund, anyone? We'll happily split the verses in "1, 2, 3, 4."
