Well shiat. :(

Weird Al's parents and Coolio are now churning butter on the other side together.

Didn't he lose his shiat when Weird Al spoofed 'gangster's paradise'?

RIP Guy whose Weird Al Parody was more popular than his #1 hit.

Which is pretty ironic, since "Gangsta's Paradise" was Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise" with some rap lyrics added.

Fantastic Voyage was good.  Gangstas Paradise was good.  But he did great with the keenan and kel theme, too.

rdnjr1234: Didn't he lose his shiat when Weird Al spoofed 'gangster's paradise'?


No. His people did, though. He had concerns (based on their shiat flipping), mainly that his song was too serious for the disrespect of bad parody. His first experience with Al's treatment. He liked it once he'd heard it.

Well, he died on the crapper like all the other greats. Musicians really should stay away from toilets.
 
2022-09-28 9:10:53 PM  
Kenan and Kel inconsolable (well they are probably sad).

It's the end of his fantastic voyage. RIP.

The pun was unintentional, btw.

Little known facts:

1) Buddy Holly was taking a shiat on that plane

2) Stevie Ray Vaughan's favorite prank was pooping off the side of a helicopter

I've had "Fantastic Voyage" stuck in my head since yesterday. But that's just a coincidence.

I'll be living in an Amish Paradise ...until Friday.
 
2022-09-28 9:27:09 PM

I liked Gangsta's Paradise, it led to the best Weird Al song Amish Paradise.

Weird Al can stop watching his back now.

I'm sorry to hear that. I always liked him.

Which is strange because Coolio riffed Stevie Wonder

No. His people did, though. He had concerns (based on their shiat flipping), mainly that his song was too serious for the disrespect of bad parody. His first experience with Al's treatment. He liked it once he'd heard it.


Wikipedia says that the record company gave Al permission to do it without even asking Coolio, who was pissed about it. Al wrote Coolio a sincere letter of apology and gave him increased royalties. Coolio eventually came around on it and realized what a great parody it was, and also what an honor it was to be among the artists that Al has parodied.

/It probably helped that the XL residual royalties never fully stopped coming in.
 
2022-09-28 9:53:46 PM  
Now when Coolio takes a look at his life, there literally is nothing left.
 
2022-09-28 9:53:46 PM  
Damn, that sucks. RIP Coolio
