Vanilla Ice got pretty emotional, recalling the last time he had a heart-to-heart with Coolio about being a parent … adding he’s put a brief hold on his tour following the rapper’s death.
Ice tried keeping it together while talking about their last convo … and it sounds like Coolio’s kids were on his mind the last time they hung out. He says family was a big topic during their chats.
He tells us Coolio was all about positivity … and was a good friend all this time — adding he’ll be missed.
Ice also says he’s taking the weekend off from performing after learning about his bud’s death … because he doesn’t think he’s in the right mindset to put on a show.
As we reported, Coolio’s last performancewas with Ice … coming out onstage with him last week to freestyle during his set. V.I. says he had no clue this performance would be his last — he was more focused on how honored he was to have such a legend up there with him.
Ice tells us he’s going to make sure his friend’s legacy lives on forever.
