Rappers might be all “bang, bang shoot ’em up, I only got love for the skrippers” in their lyrics, but one good thing that has come out of reality TV is seeing that these entertainers aren’t really about that life.

Apparently Coco is sweet enough to tame the beast in the west coast vet, and it’s pretty obvious that his son Tracy and Spartacus, the family bulldog, don’t do too bad of a job either.
