Rolling Stone - Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Coolio had signed a deal with Pornhub to release his new video and debut any of the rapper’s new music. And while the Internet let out a collective chuckle, the 50-year-old rapper tells Rolling Stone nearly all of the report is untrue.
“I don’t know why TMZ always has to do that bullshit, man,” says Coolio. “I let them into the video shoot willingly and then the first thing they do is talk bullshit about me and try to make me look bad. They were trying to say it was my comeback. Man, I ain’t trying to make no fuckin’ comeback off some porn.” The rapper chatted about porn, sex and music to set the record straight.
So you’re releasing a new album through Pornhub…
Hold up. They made that shit up completely. I didn’t talk to them about shit and they didn’t ask me any questions. That shit was a fuckin’ promo song for the website. That’s it! I met some executive from Pornhub while he was out [in Las Vegas] for the AVNs. We hung out; he was cool. He asked me to do a song for Pornhub and that was it. It’s not even my song that I’m putting out. I’m never doing a new album. I’ll probably do nothing but singles. I’m as good as anybody out there lyrically and conceptually and can go toe to toe with the best of them throughout history. But I don’t know how much longer I’ll be doing it. It’s not really fun anymore.
The article mentioned that Pornhub would get to premiere new tracks.
I don’t know where that came from. If they pay me enough money, fuck yeah, I’ll do an album exclusively for Pornhub. At this point in my career, bro, I don’t have nothing to prove to nobody. I’ve proved everything. I just have to prove some shit to my banker. I have to prove to that motherfucker I can put more zeroes in my account. They constantly come at me on some foul shit. I talked to [TMZ founder] Harvey [Levin] personally, who said, “Yeah, I really like you, Coolio.” Well, you don’t fuckin’ act like it.
…I will say this, though, about the promo video: Damn. Mmm mmm mmm. They were some nice women sitting around that motherfucker, boy. I don’t even watch porn, bro. You know why?
Because I am fuckin’ porn. Why should I watch somebody do something that I could be doing? That doesn’t make sense to me. If I want to see porn, I’ll fuckin’ put a mirror next to my bed. There’s 7 billion people on the planet, right? If that’s so, then I’m one of the world’s 1 million greatest lovers. I’m totally unselfish. I don’t give a shit about myself. I’m all about my partner. I’m a pleaser. You can ask any woman I’ve ever been with and they’ll tell you, “He’s the motherfucker.”
Oh what a surprise TMZ made up another story. Shocker. Got to admit though, totally worth it to get this interview with Coolio and hear some of these quotes. Why don’t you watch porn Coolio? ”Because I am fuckin’ porno.” Most badass answer ever. I mean normally you hear a guy doesn’t watch porn and the first thing you think is wow, psychopath. But if you qualify it with you fuck so good and so much that all you have to do is put a mirror next to your bed and watch yourself? Just flipped the game on its head. He’s the motherfucker indeed. Coolio baby, don’t call it a comeback!
Seriously don’t, because it’s not.
