Updated: See a photo gallery of Coolio's visit here.¬†
Last season it was Vanilla Ice. This season, the Bucks welcome Coolio this Saturday.
Rapper throw back night ‚Äď or as the Bucks are calling it Y2K Night ‚Äď toasts old school ticket prices, a halftime show with Coolio and Bucks legend Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson.¬†
Saturday should be a great night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, for sure.¬† Get tickets here. ¬†
Coolio's pending visit, though, got me thinking. What other old school rappers would we like to see? Wisconsin State Fair had MC Hammer, Tone Loc and Young MC in 2011, but who else needs take the mic again? Here are a few that I'd put on my list.¬†
Kid 'N Play
Christopher "Kid" Reid and Christopher "Play" Martin and their DJ, Mark "DJ Wiz" Eastmond. Yes, bring them all back ‚Äď hair and all. And, let's see this live!
I saw Biz many years ago at Moda3, but would love to see him again. At age 49, I'm sure he could do a great halftime set.¬†
Simone Gooden, better known by her stage name Monie Love, is only 43. She's still in the music/radio business and it would be great to hear "Monie in the Middle" again live.¬†
Other thoughts? You're excited, I'm sure, to see Coolio, but who else is on your old school rap list? Digital Underground? Eazy-E? Chime in via social media or the talkbacks.
