Coolio, a former contestant on Food Network's Rachael Vs. Guy Celebrity Cookoff and author of bestselling cookbook, Cookin' with Coolio, is determined to have a career in food at any cost. Case in point, he's auctioning off his hit songs to fund his new cookbook series, Ghetto Gourmet. The rapper, who is also known for 90s hits like Gangsta's Paradise, will sell the rights to his collection of 123 songs which is predicted to earn between $134,000 and $225,000. We can only wonder what else he'll auction off if he ever decides to open a restaurant. [via Salon]
