I repeat: Coolio -- he of "Fantastic Voyage" and "Gangsta's Paradise" fame -- has a cooking show called (natch) "Cookin with Coolio." Ian posted about it here. The link he provides goes to here -- and that entry states:
Coolio, the rapper known mostly for the song Gangsta's Paradise, wants to "teach yo ass how to cook," and now the self proclaimed Ghetto Gourmet has his own online cooking show. Unsurprisingly, the show features cleavage, swearing, and references to swords, nunchucks, and pistols. The subject of the first show—caprese salad, or as Coolio explains it, "I'm gunna teach you how to make a salad that will get them panties right off."
Coolio, "1, 2, 3, 4 (Sumpin' New)":
