Coolio's Star Fades in U.S., But Shines Abroad

"I am actually disappointed in hip-hop now," he said. "If people listen to the hip-hop of the 1990s, it was the greatest era. A lot of these kids think everything they write is good."

But Coolio still sometimes gets rolled eyes from his own children, four of whom are 20, 19, 18 and 15, and will spar with him on their reality show this fall.

"They think I'm an old fogey, but they do realize I am a viable artist and actually damned talented," he said. "I do a lot of shows with younger artists and they're not up to par."
