Coolio, aka Artis Leon Ivey Jr., was arrested Tuesday on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. Los Angeles police stopped the rapper for having expired registration and then found that he was driving with a suspended license and had an outstanding warrant.
His Hummer was pulled over at 1:45 a.m. in Hollywood. The 44-year-old rapper – damn, I still remember a youngass Coolio back in ’95 singing “Gangsta’s Paradise” – was released after only five hours. He posted $10,000 bail.
