TBT Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio

It’s time. Time to go back to 1995! This was the year where Coolio’s hit track Gangsta’s Paradise was all over the radio. The track itself samples the chorus of Stevie Wonder’s Pastime Paradise. This song and the album it features on, has won a Grammy, two VMA’s and a Billboard award. It’s one of the most bought singles of all time, selling 5 million copies in the US, UK, Germany and Croatia alone. Containing one of the best rap verses of all time, this song is definitely a strong statement.
