Coolio achieved mainstream success in the mid to late 1990s with his albums It Takes a More about Coolio Bestselling Books: Cookin' with Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price. Gangsta's Paradise [Explicit].


Most of Coolio's hit debut It Takes a Thief was fairly upbeat material, but the appearance of the stark single 'Gangsta's Paradise' in the summer of 1995 signaled a change in the rapper's music. Driven by an ominously deep bassline and slashing strings, the creeping, threatening funk of 'Gangsta's Paradise' was the most chilling thing Coolio had recorded to date, but the menace didn't come at the expense of his considerable talent for immediate, catchy hooks. Consequently, the single shot to the top of the charts and hovered in the Top Ten for many weeks. The album followed shortly afterwards, and it didn't fail to deliver on the promise of the single. Not only did Coolio expand his sound, but his songwriting skills improved, as Gangsta's Paradise has very few weak moments. Alternating between slow, funky grooves and elastic, party-ready anthems, Gangsta's Paradise is proof that Coolio is one of the most exciting and interesting hip-hop artists of the mid-'90s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

The Source[10]

Spin gave the album 8 out of 10, and said, 'Today's rappers aren't interested in sharing any knowledge with outsiders. Coolio is the great exception. the most stylistically broad mainstream rap album you'll probably hear all year. Even upon first listen, it sounds like a collection of hits.'[12]

Entertainment Weekly ranked the album #4 on EW's Top 10 Albums of 1995, and said, 'The level-headed street philosopher, preaching respect for black women, fatherly responsibility, and safe sex. continuing in the great tradition of Sly Stone and Stevie Wonder. Coolio and his crew make the ghetto seem not just a place of desolation, but of hope.'[13][14]

The Source gave the album 4 Mics out of 5, and said, 'The crazy braided one brings skilled and insightful lyrics that reach and relate to all levels of the Black experience. sets standards that corny lyrics and catchy loops can't compete with. Few artists can straddle the line between commercial and underground hip-hop.'[15]

Musician said, 'Coolio ties his music to a message that's as deep as the groove.'[16]

Rap Pages gave the album 7 out of 10, and said, 'Maybe because he rapped for a decade with no props, got yanked on record deals. this cool-ass homie from Compton has stayed grounded. Coolio rejoices in the only life he knows.'[17]

NME gave the album 7 out of 10, and said, 'Instead of playing the role of the Uzi-toting big-shot, he adopts a more reflective view of urban life in Los Angeles. In doing so, Coolio takes a deliberate step forward from last year's light-hearted debut.'[18]
