It may be awhile before Coolio‘s eldest son Grtis Ivey is out from behind bars. Ivey was charged in November 2011, for staging a heist in a Las Vegas apartment. Now, due to a plea deal, he faces some serious jail time.

According to TMZ, the “Gangsta’s Paradise” rapper’s son stormed the dwelling armed with a gun. Ivey forced the tenant to stay in the bathroom while the 22-year-old’s “female prostitute friend” took apart the home, searching for valuables.

Earlier this week, Ivey agreed to the plea deal. He plead guilty to a felony robbery charge. In exchange, prosecutors will drop the remaining felonies against the hip-hopper’s troubled son.

Ivey could serve between 42 months and 10 years in prison.
