Coolio is cool, calm and collected when he cooks and bluffs on Bravo's Recipe for Deception...or is he?

On this Thursday's episode, the "Gangsta's Paradise" rapper shows off his culinary skills during a French food challenge, but he hits a snag when he has trouble hunting down ingredients. Also joining Coolio in the cook-off are Steve Howey (Shameless),  Alanna Ubach (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce) and Lou Diamond Phillips (Longmire).

This isn't the first time Coolio and Phillips have been pitted against each other in the kitchen: the pals were the final two contestants in the first season of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off four years ago...with Phillips taking home the grand prize.

Does this mean Coolio will have a shot at a comeback? Check out the exclusive video below and judge for yourself.
