Coolio put on the ultimate acoustic performance of his 1995 hit song "Gangsta's Paradise" with a group of UK college students last night. Yes, that happened.

The rapper was in England for a gig, and ended up befriending a group of University of Central Lancashire students in the V.I.P. area. Again, a true story.

Coolio liked the college kids so much that he offered to make the group dinner (he's big into cooking these days, as well as rapping) at their school.

They took him up on it, and had an impromptu jam session as well. Watch!

The 50-year-old hip hop star whipped up a caprese salad, peach cobbler and something called "Chicken a la Daaaamn," while paying for everything.

On Reddit, one of the students said Coolio was a "great guy" who "had some very deep and profound thoughts on life and his time in the business."

Aside from the fact that whomever shot the clip should be roughed up a bit for not holding their iPhone horizontally, this is a pretty damn cool story.

For those too young to recall it, watch the original video below:

And get this: Anabella says Coolio also struck her with his car as he peaced out in a hurry - hard enough that she could show TIRE MARKS ON HER LEG.

How quaint.

Rapper Coolio was arrested in Las Vegas today and is currently behind bars at the same jail as his kid. "Gangstas Paradise" is a family thing in Sin City!

Coolio was a passenger in a Nissan Versa (!?) which was pulled over for a routine traffic violation early Friday morning ... and then the $h!t hit the fan.

The police ran his name in the system and noticed he had two active bench warrants out for his arrest stemming from multiple traffic violations.

Always pay your tickets, people. Set an example for your kids!

Coolio was arrested and hauled to Clark County Detention Center, where his son Grtis is living after allegedly robbing some dude at gunpoint.

No word if they enjoyed a heartfelt reunion during recess.

Coolio's bail has been set at $5,850. A court date has not yet been set. Grtis? Probably not getting released on bail. Armed robbery and all.
