Cookin’ With Coolio

No doubt you remember these immortal lines from Coolio’s 1995 hit Gangster’s Paradise:

Power and the money, money and the power

Minute after minute, hour after hour

Everybody’s running, but half of them ain’t lookin

What’s goin on in the kitchen, but I don’t know what’s cookin

What’s cooking these days is apparently a middling-looking Caprese salad, hilariously prepared by Coolio himself. Shaka Zulu!

This also explains why Coolio wears a hat through his entire show.
