Take a fantastic voyage to see Coolio at Mad Planet on Feb. 24

'Tis the season for old school rap artists to come to Milwaukee, apparently. Coming hot off the heels of R. Kelly and Snoop Dogg last month, Coolio – as first reported by Milwaukee Record – will pop by The Mad Planet to perform at a very special Friday Retro Dance Party on Feb. 24.

The 21-and-over event will open at 9 p.m., with a $15 cover charge at the door. Following his performance, the "Gangsta's Paradise" rap star will host a meet-and-greet with fans, while the party itself rages on until closing time (2:30 a.m.).

Coolio's no stranger to Milwaukee; in fact, last summer, he hit the Wisconsin State Fair main stage as a part of the I Love The '90s Tour, alongside Salt-N-Pepa, Color Me Badd and Rob Base. Unfortunately, he won't be back for the tour's return to State Fair this summer – replaced by Vanilla Ice, Kid 'n Play, Tone Loc and Young MC, and All-4-One – so this surprise Mad Planet visit will have to do.

Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage that, if we're lucky, will feature this essential gem:

The only thing that can top that? Orange soda.
