Coolio Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Collio is a nickname used by Artis Leon Ivey Jr., who is also known as El Cool Magnifico and Artis Ivey Jr. Coolio nowadays has an estimated net worth of $100,000 while being one of the best known American record producers, musicians, actors, rappers and screenwriters. The best known of Coolio’s songs which increased his net worth are “Gangster’s paradise”, “Fantastic Voyage”, “1 2 3 4” and “I’ll C U When U Get There”. During his impressive career as a musician Artis Ivey has released 10 studio albums and appeared in numerous movies.

Coolio Net Worth $100,000

Artis Leon Ivey Jr. was born on August 1, 1963, in Compton, California, United States.

The first his album, called “It Takes a Thief”, was released in 1994. The first song from the album, “Fantastic Voyage”, immediately became one of the hits on MTV, and that’s why Coolio’s net worth started to rise. This debut album received 4 stars from the “Rolling Stone” magazine, so it definitely can be called a successful beginning. The next album, “Gangsta’s Paradise”, was released only one year after. Then A. Ivey was able to repeat his success one more time as the song with the same name as the new album became a great hit. His third album, “My Soul”, didn’t gain as much success as the previous two, however, Coolio’s net worth still increased because of his work as a musician.

It is also needs to be mention that Leon Ivey Jr. is known as an actor. He made his acting debut in 1996, when played in “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” – an American sitcom extremely popular around the world  created by Nell Scovell. He didn’t have a big role in it, but it was the first, and a really needed experience in a movie. Later he portrayed several more small roles in films such as “Kenan and Kel”, “Batman & Robin”, “Duckman” and “An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn” released in 1997.

However, the main source of Coolio’s net worth is definitely music, not the movies. He has even received several awards. He has one American Music Award, one Grammy and three MTV Video Music Awards. Furthermore, he has been nominated for different awards 13 times, and this is the reason why today the estimated net worth  of Artis Leon Ivey Jr. is still rising as before.

However, despite all the fame, Coolio has also had  some serious problems with the police, and hasn’t able to sustain a longtime relationship. He has six children with the different women, but Coolio is still alone and furthermore, he was arrested for punching his girlfriend of three years in the face after the scandal that she made when Artis came home with another woman. Of course, Coolie doesn’t take any honor from this , but we need to admit that this scandal and publicity could only help increase his net worth Artis.

That is the answer to the question about how rich Coolio is.

#Quote
1 But when I really look back on my life, being really honest about it and now that I've got the chance to travel the world, seeing how a lot of little kids grow up - my life wasn't so bad.
2 I've basically got an album full of singles.
3 I've been rapping since 1979.
4 If it wasn't for the military I probably would not have ever come to Bosnia for vacation.
5 People treat me nice 'cos I treat them nice.
6 We take pride in what we do.
7 I just think it's my responsibility as a human being and an entertainer to see the soldiers.
8 I never let any of my sons beat me at video games.
9 I perform for soldiers because they are important.
10 I was hungry a coupla' times but for the most part I ate every day... I got to go to school for free.
11 I wasn't driving down the wrong side of the street, smoking marijuana, waving my gun out the window.
12 I'm innocent. I've done nothing. I'm a nice guy.
13 Acting is all about timing. I mean, who has better timing than the MCs?
14 Because I'm a young black man driving a really nice, expensive car, I sometimes get harassed when I'm rolling through a ghetto neighborhood.
15 I came to Baku the same way I would go to Texas - because they asked me to come and play hip hop.
16 I finished the movie a month ago in downtown Los Angeles. I had a lot of fun doing it.
