Coolio Turns Up at Student Party in England

Kelly Maguire was on a normal night out with friends in Lancashire when they spotted rap star Coolio. They danced with him and brought him back to Kelly’s house, where they jammed to a special acoustic rendition of the 1995 hit Gangsta’s Paradise. Kelly told Storyful Coolio “cooked us a 3 course meal and shared some personal stories throughout the night. It’s safe to say it was one of the most surreal nights of my life!” Credit: Kelly Maguire.
