Guy Fieri's Heartwarming Tribute To Coolio
By AMBERLY MCKEE
Apart from his musical talents, rapper Coolio also hosted and appeared in many cooking shows. After the rapper passed away on September 28, 2022, not only has the music industry been mourning his loss, but so has the culinary world, including Guy Fieri, who posted a tribute to Coolio on Twitter.
Guy Fieri honored Coolio by posting a photo on Twitter of the two cooking together, with the caption, “RIP my rappin' & cookin' friend [Coolio]! The REAL deal!” Twitter users joined in solidarity, with one person commenting, “Coolio was a real chicken guy, may he rest in flavor.”
Coolio and Fieri shared a solid relationship on- and off-screen — Coolio was a member of Fieri’s team on “Rachael Vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off.” In 2016, Coolio defined himself as a “kitchen pimp,” and he extended the self-proclaimed title to his former coach and friend saying, “Guy Fieri is a kitchen pimp.”
