RIP Coolio, taken far too soon. Was very entertaining on Celebrity Big Brother 2008 and Ultimate Big Brother in 2010

Honestly, I think 5'6" is pushing it. I've met him a few times, and I'm not the tallest guy, and I towered over him.

I meant coolio and I'm 6'1" and coolio's like 5" shorter so he must be around 5'8.

I saw Coolio at one of my frat parties 10 years ago and he came I looked down at him and I am 5'7"

I was watching China Strike Force. Mark Dacascos was in there and he was 5'9 and throughout the film, Coolio looked inches shorter. My guess is 5'5.5-5'7

Interestingly Ulrika seemed to have two inches on Coolio. Never in a million years were they the same height as she is said to be 5'8". Coolio must be 5'6" if this is true. He's never 5'8".
Doug said on 10/Feb/09
I thought he looked short compared to Ulrika, 5'7" or so. He is a little below average height in my view, wouldn't rule out 5'6" either.

i think he's around 5'8 judging by what i saw on celeb big brother. i was expecting 5'6 going by what was said on here but comparing him to all the other 'celebs' in the house he is taller.

I've seen him and i would say he is 5ft 8.5-no shorter, no taller.

He is in the UK celebrity big brother house. He looks about 5ft7 in there. But i can't see 5ft4 being true, seems a bit harsh.

yea no way coolio is 5'8...ive seen some music vids w/ him and WC...WC is around 5'8 (similar height to cube) and coolio was a couple inches shorter. 5'6 the most does it for me
Millhouse_96 said on 22/Nov/07
5'6" is pushing it. I would say 5' 4.5". Saw him at a party.
Lee said on 12/May/07
He visited a club where I was working security.

All of the staff agreed: 5'6"

I have stood literally toe-to-toe with coolio. Dude is tiny. He might be 5'8" "with the afro" [braids, actually] but no way is he over 5'6" Skee-Lo opened for him and next to coolio, mr. "wish I was a little bit taller" looked huge. I'm 5-11.5 and coolio's nose came up to my chest. He can ride a big-wheel, after all. He was cool, tho.

Nah, he's about 5 ft 7 in. He tried to get my number and I was looking down at him.
