In the past two days I’ve come across mentions of three new programs featuring hip-hop artists; one is centered around making allegedly sexy food, one focuses on life at Beverly Hills High, and one shows the fatherly side of someone who was previously banned in the U.S.A. After the jump, a brief look at the new (and newish) small-screen offerings starring ex-Hollywood Square Coolio, the formerly Lil’ Romeo, and 2 Live Crew’s Luke Campbell.

‘Coolio and the Gang’

If you’re a rapper/rap mogul whose career has taken you out of the spotlight, there’s not much stigma left in signing up for your own reality show, even one on Oxygen. Still, you should probably be at least a little embarassed to call your reality show Coolio And The Gang. More »
