Happy news for Coolio — he’s not going to jail!
The rapper pled guilty to concealed possession of a gun in an LA court Wednesday, but was given three years probation and ordered to 45 days of community service instead of having to serve time.
However, the rapper must not use or carry a gun for a year, at which point the charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor.
Coolio originally got in trouble back in September when TSA found a gun in his book bag at LAX during an attempt to get on a flight. A member of the rapper’s entourage tried to take the blame, but ultimately proved unable to.
On a positive note, the judge presiding over the case loved Coolio’s signature hairdo. He reportedly said, “You’ve got a different little hair style … it suits you.”
