Larry "L.V." Sanders. is an R&B singer, whose initials stand for "Large Variety". He has been best known for his collaboration with rapper Coolio on the hit single, "Gangsta's Paradise". He has been featured on multiple soundtracks since then, and has released two albums to date.
"Gangsta's Paradise" was a song written and performed by rapper Coolio. It was featured on the soundtrack to the 1995 hit movie "Dangerous Minds", and later was featured on Coolio's sophomore album, Gangsta's Paradise the same year. The song contained a sample of Stevie Wonder's 1976 song, "Pasttime Paradise".
On this single, L.V. sang the chorus: "We've been spending most our lives living in a Gangsta's Paradise". The song, which was a crossover hit on many Top 40 stations in late 1995 and early 1996, earned Coolio and L.V. a Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance (Solo performance because the Grammys didn't consider Coolio and L.V. to be a group or singing a duet).
Now he's back, ready to give a soulful side that the lady's will sure love, with his new single: The Art
The song expresses, that there is an art form to making love.
