Coolio Gets His Own Reality Show...On Oxygen?

I always thought Oxygen was for shows that targeted a female audience but what do I

Rapper Coolio is set to star in his own reality TV show for women's cable network Oxygen.

According to Reuters, the show, titled "Coolio & the Gang," is expected to air in the second-quarter of 2008. It will follow the rapper as he raises six teenagers by himself, all while maintaining his rap career and launching a clothing line.

"Coolio is a single dad raising kids, and it's got a lot of unconventional parenting aspects to it," Debby Beece, president of programming and marketing at Oxygen, told Reuters. "He wants his kids to do as he says, not as he does."

So far, six half-hour episodes are set to be shot.

44-year-old (Daagggg...since when? -- RichBoi88) Coolio rose to fame in the mid-90s with hit songs like "Fantastic Voyage" and "Gangsta's Paradise," but has been unable to reach the same mainstream success of his first two albums.
