Coolio spent the morning chillin' in jail.
The "Gangsta's Paradise" purveyor was arrested early Tuesday during a routine traffic stop after police discovered he was wanted on an outstanding warrant for driving with a suspended driver's license, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Per authorities, Coolio, whose real name is Artis Ivey Jr., was pulled over at 1:45 a.m. in West Hollywood when officers noticed the vehicle registration tags on his 1996 Hummer had expired. They learned of the suspended-license rap after running his name through their computer.
Coolio was booked on the misdemeanor charge at downtown L.A.'s Parker Center jail and released at about 6:45 a.m. after posting $10,000 bail.
