Rap star Coolio is launching a new business venture - selling snacks to hungry Los Angeles nightclubbers.
The Gangsta's Paradise hitmaker is pleading poverty, claiming he needs to find a new way to make money after losing out big when he divorced ex-wife - and current manager - Josefa Salinas in 2000.
And Coolio, real name Artis Ivey Jr., plans to tap into the culinary skills he shows off on his TV food show Cookin' With Coolio.
The 44-year-old explains, "Have you ever come out of a nightclub and seen those cats selling hot dogs? I am gonna open a couple of carts like that. I am going to sell me soul rolls. They are egg rolls, but with soul."
