Our boy Johnny V chats with Coolio backstage at our Real 106.1 Presents: I Love the 90s at the BB&T Pavilion on August 24th, 2018.
Coolio’s hit song Gangster’s Paradise hit our radios in 1995 but still rocks crowds. But you might be surprised by Coolio's thoughts on the hit single as he calls it a blessing and a curse.
Coolio reacts to the success of Gangster’s Paradise saying, “Aw man, you know it’s a blessing. It’s a blessing and a curse because the song was so big that it overshadows everything I do. But at the same time, you know, it’s more of a blessing than a curse so you know you can’t look a gift horse in the mouth. I take it as it comes and I roll it with. I mean I could go on stage and do Gangster’s Paradise three times and they’d be fine with it. But I don’t do that actually.”
Coolio is on tour with I Love the 90s for the third year. Watch the full interview with Coolio and Johnny V below:
