Takin’ Em Back – 11/13

13 11 2009

I heard this joint on Pandora earlier today and it took me right back to when I was a young’n. Though Coolio has been making random comedy and reality TV appearances in the 00’s, he was once a big name in the 90’s. His first two albums were highly popular making today’s throwback joint one of his biggest hits. “Gangsta’s Paradise” was the theme for the Dangerous Minds film and also the name of his sophomore LP. Weird Al cleverly parodied the track which pissed Coolio off, and didn’t want to accept Weird Al’s apology. Just for that, I’m throwing in “Amish Paradise”, Weird Al’s rendition of “Gangsta’s Paradise”.

Coolio feat. LV – Gangsta’s Paradise

Weird Al Yankovich – Amish Paradise
