[Old School Joint] Coolio – Gangsta’s Paradise

At the age of 7 I was watching movies like Cinderella, Peter Pan, 101 Dalmatians, oh and Dangerous Minds. Yes, at 7 years old Dangerous Minds was apart of my movie rotation. I begged my mother to buy me the soundtrack and in little to no time after that I was rapping the lyrics of Coolio‘s “Gangsta’s Paradise” to my parents and classmates. I hardly understood the lyrics but I felt like a million bucks knowing the words verbatim. At 7 years old I knew how empowering rap could be and that is when I fell in love with Hip Hop.
