Coolio wowed reporters at the TCA’s Bravo panel on Sunday in Beverly Hills with a fun performance of his hit, ‘Fantastic Voyage’, alongside his 18-year-old son, Artis Ivey. The rapper was there to promote his new show ‘Coolio’s Rules’ coming to Bravo in October. The show will follow the adventures of Coolio and his four teenage children while he develops his own catering business.
What’s it like being a 44-year-old celebrity rapper? “I think I already went through a midlife crisis,” he said to reporters. “I went through a period where I’m still having issues with women. I got robbed by my first wife. I’m comfortable with being 44. I really am. I’m at my peak when it comes to the art of hip hop,” adding “I’m trying to be the first rapper to go platinum at 50. Just wait. The album is gonna be called ‘Old Man River’.” His goal for the show? “I hope to be the male, hip hop Martha Stewart,” said the rapper.
