Sporting what is arguably the best hairdo on MTV, this Comptonite spews charming and disarming couplets (”They say beauty is skin deep but goddamn, whee, the bitch looked like Buckwheat mixed with Opie,” he raps in ”Ugly Bitches”). Coolio’s beats don’t break any new ground on It Takes a Thief, but they provide a bouncing backdrop for his bugged-out witticisms. And in a genre sorely missing a sense of humor, he’s a welcome presence. B+
