The rapper treated a group of student fans in Preston to trip around Tesco, followed by a three course meal and a special performance in their living room
Let it never be said that 90's rapper Coolio doesn't know how to treat his fans. The 'Gangsta's Paradise' rapper was performing in Preston and after the show he began talking to a group of students from the University of Central Lancashire who had VIP tickets to the gig, which by all accounts is a pretty cool procedure for an artist. But things soon took a bizarre turn when the rapper decided to extend his stay a little longer.

Reddit user lorcantc uploaded a video of the rapper in the student group's living room, performing an acoustic rendition of his most famous song, trying his best to get everyone involved with the action. When asked why Coolio was performing in the living room, the Redditor said that after a show he performed in the city, he decided to go back to the house and told the residents that he had no plans for the night.

One of the students, Lorcan, posted his account of the night on Reddit, saying he managed to persuade Coolio to join he and his friends in their living room for some acoustic action. Wearing a white t-shirt and some jeans, the rapper reclines on the leather sofa and hurries along the amateur guitarist. A handful of students take care of the famous chorus.
