Coolio Performs at Deli for Only "$3,000, a Bucket of Chicken and a Bottle of Patrón"
Published Sep 01, 2009Oh how the mighty have fallen. Take, for example, rapper Coolio, who once sat perched upon the top of the world with hits like "Gangsta's Paradise" and "Fantastic Voyage" but is now enjoying the life of a C-list celeb. Earlier this year, he was arrested for possession of crack cocaine and a crack pipe, and if that wasn't bad enough, it's been revealed that Coolio recently performed at a deli, who paid him partially in chicken.
According to a report from TimesCall [via The Daily Swarm], Coolio recently performed at a restaurant called the Deli Zone in Longmont, CO.
As Deli Zone owner Jeremy King explains, his hope was that the rapper would help turn his restaurant into a reputable venue. "My hope is that Coolio is going to give us some recognition," said Jeremy King. "I'm hoping to get a cool reputation as a cool place to come see music."
What made it even better for the restaurant, however, was Coolio's meagre demands. Allegedly, Coolio only asked for "$3,000, a bucket of chicken and a bottle of Patrón (he likes the Silver variety)." Maybe he does weddings too!
