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.

    1. Makes sense when you look at it that way
