Hot! Coolio: WC & I Were First West Coast MC’s Not to Be Booed in NYC

Coolio sat down with VladTV recently and spoke on his relationship with fellow West coast spitter WC, saying he was brought into his group, Low Profile, as a back-up for WC alongside DJ Aladdin. Coolio claims they were the first Hip-Hop group not to be booed off stage in NYC, but unfortunately were swindled by Aladdin, who embezzled the group’s money. After that, WC left and they formed the group Maad Circle, and were eventually signed to Priority Records.

Down the line, Ice Cube took members of Maad Circle on tour, leaving behind Coolio when he financially needed the opportunity the most. He says he understands WC touring with Cube, but would have moved differently himself.
