What’s cookin’ with Coolio? A drug beef with airport cops.

The rapper – real name Artis Leon Ivey Jr. – was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport for drug possession Friday. After his booking, bail was set for $10,000.

He was allegedly found with crack cocaine while going through security before boarding a Southwest Airlines flight, TMZ reports.

Coolio, best known for his 1995 hit Gangsta’s Paradise, has appeared recently on several reality TV shows, including Celebrity Fear Factor, and hosted the online program Cookin With Coolio.

Coolio’s rep Susan Haber could not immediately be reached for comment.
