Coolio Crashes College Party, Sings ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’

Do they not teach proper iPhone video camera technique in college these days? Other than the vertical orientation faux pas, this is a pretty cool video of Coolio crashing someone's party for an acoustic version of "Gangsta's Paradise." Perhaps crashing is the wrong word — University of Central Lancashire student Olivia Johnson-Aley explains exactly what happened: "Met Coolio on a student night out in Preston and he said he wanted to cook for me and my house mates the following night and that's exactly what happened." So how was the food? "It was great!" said Reddit user lorcantc, who was also there:

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.
