Family Ties: Rapper Coolio And Son Locked Up At Same Las Vegas Prison


They say talent runs in the family – and  according to TMZ – rapper turned reality star Coolio may have given his son the wrong family “gifts”.

The “Gangsters Paradise” rapper was arrested in Las Vegas Friday morning after being pulled over for a routine traffic violation. TMZ reports that cops ran Coolio’s name in the system and noticed he had 2 active bench warrants out for his arrest which stemmed from multiple traffic violations that were never paid.

The rapper was then transported to the Clark County Detention Center where his son Grtis is currently serving a sentence for allegedly helping a hooker rob someone at gunpoint.


Coolio’s bail has been set at $5,850 – with no court date in site (as yet).
