Coolio appeared in court today to plead guilty to possession of a concealed weapon after being caught with a gun in his bag at LAX (smooth move, Coolio). But as far as court appearances go, things went pretty well for the rapper – he won’t be facing any jail time but rather three years probation and 45 days of community service. He did, however, receive some shade from the judge in the form of a masterful backhand compliment about his hair.
This isn’t Coolio’s first brush with the law; in fact he’s stood before the very same judge in the past. Lucky for us, the judge is low key hilarious and threw in a masterful quip about the rapper’s unique appearance. “You’re a little bit different. You’ve got a different little hairstyle going here than in the past,” he says. “But it, you know, it suits you.”
Now some outlets (including TMZ, which unearthed this glorious footage) are calling the judge’s remark a compliment, but lest we forget that Coolio is standing in a courtroom for bringing a firearm into LAX, i.e. he isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.
Need I spell it out for you? Coolio is stupid, that hairdo suits him, and thus that hairdo is stupid. Shots fired (get it?).
