Coolio in court

A Los Angeles judge complimented '90s rapper Coolio for his tribal-inspired hairstyle during a hearing where he pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon.

Artis Leon Ivey Jr., 53, avoided jail time for bringing a loaded weapon into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

According to gossip tabloid TMZ, the judge, who is familiar with Coolio, said to him, “You’re a little bit different. You’ve got a different little hairstyle going on here than in the past, but it, you know, it suits you.”

The judge reprimanded Coolio for getting into trouble again, and told him he would serve serious jail time for his next offense.

Coolio has been arrested on various weapons, assault and drug charges dating back to 2001.

He is best known for his hit rap songs "Fantastic Voyage" and "Gangsta's Paradise", for which he won a Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    You mean to tell me none of his kids can tell him how bad he looks. Smfh. They are the last standing braids from when he sang the music for the Keanan and Kel show.

    Coolio, your hair is way fawked up you need to cut it.

  • hotntot95

  • MissHarlem

    That hairstyle is about 20 yrs expired. Do better.

  • Buttercup

    He said he's not giving up until Stevie Wonder does.

  • hotntot95

    Yes...him too

  • @djangothegod

    Stevie doesn't know the error in his ways.

  • Michelle

    He looks like a fool. He's too old to STILL have legal problems. Who is dumb enough to take a loaded gun to LAX? He should have been given the 7 year sentence that typically carries. And he has the nerve to be someone's father. Disgusting....

  • Buttercup

    ? That's the truth. When I was 6, PapaButter was taking me to school, and I asked when he was going to take the Jheri curl out of his hair. When he came to pick me up from school, he has a box.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    He needs an intervention.

  • darealwifey

    You cold for this. lmbo "I take a look at my scalp and realize there's nothin' left." lolol

  • Buttercup

    He's blind, but that doesn't mean he can't feel the part in his head like Moses himself casted it.

  • nucynu25

    Him & Stevie must go to the same braider ?? ..Stevie can't see tho so he gotta excuse , Mr.Coolio you on the hand should know better

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    No. just jump him and cut that shyt off.

  • That’s Interesting

  • hottlanta

    He must have the same people as Stevie Wonder who are tooo afraid to tell him that his hairstyle is wack. Stevie is blind he has no excuse.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Forgot. He originated the he forgot excuse.

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    I am going to look and make google my friend today, because I distinctly remember when he and people like Old Dirty Bastard, Black knights etc wore what they called Hair Prisms where braids were styled as a peacock on purpose, and Coolio became bald and kept the style... and it was not behind an African Tribe.

    He had a reality show where he was looking for a girl and his children had a part in his choices. The main chick he was seeing to also had a say. Kids are mixed-they are all beautiful too...but the one girl who he was rumored to be with most of the time, was always in trouble with him in drugs, so these may not be wives per'se, but he surely cohabited with Becky awful-lot to have kids with them AND have one as his bottom, and look for another who was...white
