Rapper Coolio hasn’t dropped any new or substantial music in a long time. It seems as if his recent endeavors have revolved around politics.
TMZ caught up with Coolio outside of LAX over the weekend to talk about a few topics, including his thoughts on Eminem’s latest album Revival. The new project includes various disses aimed at the president and his family, namely the single, “Framed,” which aggressively plots the murder of Ivanka Trump.
When asked if he believes that Trump will go at Eminem after getting dissed at the BET Hip Hop Awards and on Em’s new album, Coolio says Trump is capable of doing anything, even having Eminem killed.
It’s unclear just how serious Coolio was with his warning, but he was clear in his belief that Trump is “a weirdo.”
“He’s a weirdo. He might do anything. Ain’t no telling. He might have Eminem killed. You never know. Don’t be surprised if Eminem come up dead,” Coolio said while speaking with TMZ.
Prior to speaking on Trump and Eminem, the “Gangsta’s Paradise” rapper spoke on how the current generation of artists is more likely to rap about partying than it is to drop bars on the pertinent issues of the day.
“People don’t wanna talk about nothing these days,” he said. “They just wanna have fun and party and bullshit, so that’s what it is. Nobody wants to hear anything that’s stimulating in thought. We been conditioned like that for a long time. Especially youngsters. They don’t want anything that’s controversial really. Because they don’t got time for that.”
Trump has yet to respond to Eminem threats or disses. So, while there is no merit behind Coolio’s claims that the rapper will be assassinated, we hope that Em will continue to be safe.
