25 Years Ago in the Nineties: Coolio featuring L.V. “Gangsta’s Paradise”
Coolio hit the Top 40 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart with all six songs he placed on the chart. Of those six songs, three reached the Top 10 and one hit number one. Exactly 25 years ago, that number one hit — “Gangsta’s Paradise,” which was from the 1995 film Dangerous Minds and which also features L.V. — climbed to the top of the chart to begin its three-week reign.
