It Wasn’t Me: Rapper Denies Drug Charges


Everything is not so cool with Coolio. The rapper pleaded not guilty to drug charges last week, including possession of cocaine, according to People.com. The veteran rap artist, whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey, was arrested on March 6 at Los Angeles International Airport after police searched his luggage and allegedly found the drugs. Coolio, 45, grabbed a luggage screener’s arm to prevent the search, prosecutors say. If convicted, he faces up to three years in a state prison. His next court date is scheduled for April 20th. —BB
