Coolio is banging on TMZ for publishing false facts. According to the west coast emcee… not only did the one time “all White news” tabloid “try to make him look bad”… Coolio says Harvey Levin “personally” lied on him.
It’s a situation stemming from TMZ’s July 22, 2014 story, “Coolio Check Out My Comeback… IN A PORN STAR PARADISE!!” That’s the story in which Coolio says TMZ “made up stuff”.
“I ain’t trying to make no f*ckin’ comeback off some porn.” -Coolio
Here’s what TMZ reported:
“Coolio tells TMZ … Pornhub.com agreed to provide all the “talent” for his video — “Take it to the Hub” — and in exchange he’s going to debut all his new music on the website. We’re told Coolio and co. banged out the vid…”
Peep what Coolio just put out there:
“I don’t know why TMZ always has to do that bullsh*t, man. I let them into the video shoot willingly and then the first thing they do is talk bullsh*t 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 f*ckin’
comeback off some porn. I don’t know where that came from. If they pay me enough money, f*ck 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 motherf*cker I can put more zeroes in my account. They constantly come at me on some foul sh*t. I talked to [TMZ founder] Harvey [Levin] personally, who said, “Yeah, I really like you, Coolio.” Well, you don’t f*ckin’ act like it.”
Check out what PornHub PR head Matt Blake confirmed:
“We threw a party at a strip club during the AVN Awards, and we invited Coolio. We had some drinks, and I pitched him the idea of coming out with new music on PornHub. He loved it. The way TMZ spun it, they made it seem like we have the exclusive forever [on his music], which isn’t true — him and I have spoken about this, at the end of the day it’s all about money. It would depend how much exposure it generates. If it works, we’ll go forward. We love Coolio, he was a great sport. If he wants to do again, we’ll be more than happy to set it up.”
