Coolio's had a rough couple years. From the Personal Life section of his Wikipedia entry:

On the television program Celebrity Big Brother 2009 (UK) [10] 2009 Coolio talked about his 6 children by four different relationships, including a daughter born on January 21, 1987.

Coolio and jazz saxophonist Jarez were enlisted in July 2008 as spokespersons by the group Environmental Justice and Climate Change to educate students at historically black colleges and universities about global warming.[14]

During February 2009 Coolio did a stage dive at a college show in England in Stoke-On-Trent. Nobody caught him. As he lay on the ground people stole his chains and his clothes. As James Fielden describes, "He nearly flattened one poor girl. Then all the students decided to launch on him. They grabbed whatever they could, including his trainers, watch, chains and glasses. He was pulled back on stage by the bouncers. They got his shoes back for him." [15]

During March 2009 he was detained at the Los Angeles airport for possession of crack cocaine.[16]

Italics = The first 3,962 people they asked to be the spokespersons declined.
BOLD = I'm not sure I should think this section is as funny as I do.

Don't ask me how I ended up on Coolio's Wikipedia entry.
