If you ever wanted to own a piece of hip-hop history, you’ll soon get your chance. Coolio is getting ready to auction off his entire discography to fund his other passion: cooking.

For those who have followed his post-rap career, you already know that Coolio has been dabbling in the kitchen these past few years. He appeared on the first season of the Food Network’s ‘Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off’ and released his own cook book, ‘Cookin’ with Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price,’ back in 2009.

Now, Vulture reports that the rapper-turned-chef wants to auction off his catalogue—a total of 123 songs including hits ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ and ‘Fantastic Voyage’—to keep his cooking career going strong.

It’s not clear when and where the auction goes down, but good luck snagging one of these tracks unless you feel like saving up. He’s expected to get anywhere from $134,000 to $225,000 total, or at least a few thousand bucks per track.
