Coolio's Son

Sentenced

For Hookerific Robbery

EXCLUSIVE

Coolio's son Grtis Ivey -- who appeared on the family reality show "Coolio's Rules" -- has just been sentenced to prison for robbing an apartment in Vegas with a lady hooker friend ... and he could be locked up for 10 YEARS.

A rep for the Clark County District Attorney's office tells TMZ, 22-year-old Grtis was sentenced to serve between 42-120 months in prison -- meaning he has to serve at LEAST 42 months ... but if the Nevada Department of Corrections finds good reason, it can hold him for up to 10 years. 

As we first reported, Ivey was arrested on November 14, 2011 for busting into a Las Vegas apartment with a gun and forcing the tenant into the bathroom ... while his female prostitute friend ransacked the place.

Ivey agreed to plead guilty to felony robbery -- and in exchange, prosecutors dropped the remaining felony charges.

Ivey has been in custody since his arrest and will receive credit for time served.

He looks like a real nice gentleman. The look on his face is priceless. He looks like he can't understand why the police are inconveniencing him and he fully expects his daddy to arrive at any minute to fix his little problem by throwing money at it. I have feeling that little Coolio has a long future with the criminal justice system ahead of him.

I remember watching the reality show, and yeah Coolio may be addicted to drugs, but he tried to help his son make better decisions. He told him he'd help him get into the music business, but his son said he didn't want Coolio's help. Wanted to be a little no good thug. They couldn't get him to get off his butt for anything. He was knucklehead on the show and you could tell it broke Coolio's heart. Oh well, he will live and learnt he hard way. On a side note, I wish I'd remembered how to pronounce his name! lol

Don't have kids if you don't plan on raising them to be very good human beings.

I remember an episode on Coolio's reality show when he had a major blow out with his son about trying to be a thug, and how good he had it in life living in the suburbs of L.A. The son is a brat.

Coolio's broke anyway, right? He performed at a local bar here not too long ago..and I'm pretty sure they couldn't charge more than $2 a person for that crap.
