Coolio Responds To ‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” Mishap


One Jeopardy! contestant learned a hard lesson that resulted in a $3,200 loss. On a recent episode of the longstanding game show, Nick Spicher thought he correctly answered a question that called for the name of Coolio’s hit song for Dangerous Minds, but the mispronunciation of “Gangsta’s Paradise” cost him big time.

Now, Coolio received news of his 1995 track’s revival and had some advice for Spicher. While the 54-year-old said he probably would’ve let the contestant get a pass, sticking true to the song’s spelling of the word “gangster” will keep you out of monetary trouble. However, Coolio also had a message for a certain demographic.

“But, let me explain something to you – and this is for white people: The -er will always get you in trouble. Never use the -er if you don’t have to use the -er,” he told TMZ.
