Perspectives on a Profession
Coolio’s given name was Artis Leon Ivey Jr. He has been active on the Los Angeles rap scene since the ’80s, but he didn’t score his first hit until 1994. At No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, “Fantastic Voyage” was a huge hit.
His career took off after he contributed the hit tune “Gangsta’s Paradise” to the soundtrack for the 1995 film “Dangerous Minds,” and he has since released eight albums that have sold a combined 17 million copies. In 1996, “Gangsta’s Paradise” earned him a Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance. Both Best Rap Video and Best Video from a Film were awarded to the music video for “Rack City” at that year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
