Coolio: Gangsta's Paradise (Tommy Boy 1141)
Jeff Lorez, Blues & Soul, 21 November 1995
THE PHENOMENAL success of the single 'Gangsta's Paradise', taken from the Dangerous Minds soundtrack has hastened this, the album of the same name. It's Coolio's all important sophomore set. A collection that could well continue his ascendency or signal the beginning of the end in the notoriously ephemeral rap game.
