"I'm working to be more visible in the food world," a hungry Coolio admits. "What I really want to do right now is get a signature restaurant in one of the Vegas casinos."
He's not joking.
"We can start off really small, I don't care. I just want more people to be able to taste my food."
Coolio, the self-proclaimed "ghetto gourmet," began cooking at an early age, finding his way around the kitchen under the direction and supervision of his favorite chef. Acting as his mother's sous chef, the would-be rapper developed his culinary chops dicing onions and mincing garlic, skills he'd later demonstrate on his critically-acclaimed--but now defunct--Web series, Cookin' with Coolio.
