Although many have witnessed Coolios' rise to the top of the industry, some won't be aware of the one time he amazingly offered to cook and sing at a student flat party.

As shown in the clip above, the rapper sang an acoustic version of 'Gangsta’s Paradise', which was originally made for the 1995 film Dangerous Minds, starring Michelle Pfeiffer.

The footage was uploaded by YouTuber Kelly Maguire, who captioned the post: "My house mates and I acoustic jamming sesh of 'Gangster's Paradise' with the one and only Coolio.

"After making a guest appearance at a local club in Preston UCLAN, we got him back the next day to cook us a 3 course meal and share stories of his life and have a laugh!

"One of the most bizarre, surreal nights of my life. Not many people can say they've had dinner, been to Tesco supermarket and sang 'Gangster's Paradise' with Coolio."
