This is the greatest homage to Coolio since Weird Al performed Amish Paradise!
One Direction's Niall Horan put on some shades and took off his shirt to become his new alter ego MC Nialll in an Instagram video of him singing Gangsta's Paradise.
Needless to say, our 90s nostalgia boner was as hard as Michelle Pfeiffer's teaching assignment in Dangerous Minds!
Oh, by the way, the ice caps called, Niall, they want their
floe flow back! SRSLY he's so Coolio!
Although we definitely hope MC Niall doesn't leave 1D to start a solo rap career, perhaps taking along Liam Payne, who's in the background of this video repeatedly saying "uh!"
kneel Niall and pray all night if we have to to make sure One Direction doesn't go apart in five directions ever!
Ch-ch-check out the enrapturing rap…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
