Subscribe to Q103 on
Falling in Reverse have covered Coolio’s ’90s classic ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ for the ‘Punk Goes ’90s, Vol. 2′ compilation, and they’ve got the ultimate stamp of approval. Coolio himself makes a guest appearance in the band’s video for the song.
The clip is a throwback to Coolio’s original video, with frontman Ronnie Radke sitting in a chair in a dark room in a face-to-face confessional with a female counterpart, describing his gangster life as portrayed in the lyrics.
Radke is also seen rocking with his band, while Coolio stands by and poses for the camera, even going so far as to dust the dirt off Radke’s shoulders. It’s a rocking take on the Coolio original with enough of the rapper’s initial rap flare.
The cover is found on the ‘Punk Goes ’90s, Vol. 2′ compilation, featuring covers of popular ’90s songs by the likes of Memphis May Fire, Asking Alexandria, Motionless in White, Mayday Parade and many more. If you’re interested in picking up the disc, you can order it via iTunes and Amazon.
