Gangster’s Paradise rapper Coolio is performing in Dubai tonight

US rapper and self-proclaimed gangster Coolio is performing in Dubai tonight (Monday February 4).

Artis Leon Ivey Jr., to use his given name, is swapping the cold hard streets for the glitz and glamour of Toy Room and a one off performance.

Coolio will be blastin and laughin (so long) at the Meydan Racecourse superclub this evening (Monday February 4), plus ladies get free drinks until midnight.

He’s being supported by an unnamed special guest, though we personally think that a collaboration with Frank (Toy Room’s teddy bear mascot) would give Snoop and Jay a run for their money.

The rapper, who is also a music producer, actor and chef, is best known for his 1995 Grammy Award-winning got single Gangster’s Paradise, as well as other singles Fantastic Voyage, C U When U Get There and the theme song to mid-to-late 1990s Nickelodeon series Kenan & Kel.

He’s also appeared on UK reality TV programmes Big Brother and Wife Swap.

We can’t wait to let loose with some rap royalty.
Free. Mon Feb 4, 11pm-4am. Meydan Grandstand and Racebourse, Nad Al Sheba (052 463 3338).
