Coffee With Coolio

*sits down, takes a sip and get's ready for the newest post on Cards Over Coffee*

It has been a long time since I have added any autographs to my non-sports PC. WAY TOO LONG.

I have such a long list of autographs I want but haven't had the funds to grab them. That was until my birthday in March where I got a few small eBay gift cards.

Normally, I grab some cheap cards so I can land multiple mail days and stretch the mail day out as long as possible, but I decided this time to pull the trigger on a card I had my eye on for a few years that would eat up one gift card.

It was worth it.

*takes a sip*

I was never really into rap in the 90's, I was more of a pop kind of guy. But, one catchy song always came on the radio and I really liked it.

Gangsta's Paradise was released by Coolio in 1994-1995 and was featured on the soundtrack for the movie, 1995 hit movie Dangerous Minds.

I hadn't seen the movie until I met my wife, but the song I could listen to all of the time. Though I was far from a Gangsta's Paradise. Unless you consider out in the boonies just that. It was probably more like Rednecks's Paradise.

With anything that ties into nostalgia for me, I try to find a card that goes with it.
I discovered that Coolio had a signature in the 2015 Americana set and had it in my watchlist for a while. Luckily this cheaper one I had in my watchlist never sold.

Back of the card talks more about his reality TV visits than his music. Kind of odd, but will go with it.

*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*

I have tried to listen to other songs by Coolio, but they never really caught on with me. Like I said, I don't listen to a lot of rap music especially today.

Let me know in comments your favorite Coolio song or songs in comments.

Have a Super Saturday.

  1. Cool signature. I don't know if I ever bought one of Coolio's CDs, but I do like his famous songs. The one I listen to the most is probably: C U When U Get There. I also like that song he did with Method Man, Busta Rhymes, etc for Space Jam: Hit 'Em High.

  2. It seems weird to me too, but I suppose that people in 2015 probably would know him more from reality shows than his hit songs from 20 years prior.


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
