Coolio's online cooking show has long been an obsession of ours (for the uninitiated: the rapper makes caprese salad and spring rolls surrounded by scantily clad ladies, all the while tossing out catchphrases like "Blasian," "Ghettitalian," and "Shakazulu!"), and now, with the release of his first cookbook, Cookin' With Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price, the man is doing the awkward mainstream press tour we always dreamed could happen. Observe as he explains the health benefits of sunflower oil ("no trans fats up in hurr"), expounds on the origins of shakazulu, and shares his teary thoughts on Julie & Julia. [NBC]
