Coolio is auctioning off his songs to fund his chef career

This iconic gangsta is about to go where no hip-hop legend has gone before … to the kitchen. This month, Coolio plans to auction off all his tunes to fund his dream career as a chef. Though he hasn’t had a hit since the 90s, Coolio’s song catalogue is apparently worth a penny. Or three.

The rights to his entire collection of music is valued somewhere between at $134,000 and $225,000. But as we all know, things are only actually worth what someone is willing to pay for it. So how badly do you want the rights to Gangsta’s Paradise?
