Coolio's son, Grtis Ivey, has been sentenced to prison for robbery and could serve up to 10 years. 

The hip hop scion, 22, was arrested in November of last year after teaming up with a hooker to stick up an apartment in Las Vegas. Ivey held the tenant in the bathroom at gunpoint while the prostitute cleaned out the rest of the apartment, according to TMZ.

Ivey has been sentenced to between 42 and 120 months, meaning that although he will become eligible for release after the initial three-and-a-half years, under Nevada state law, the Department of Corrections could still hold him for a full 10.

Coolio's kid, who appeared in the reality show "Coolio's Rules," has been in custody since November and will receive credit for the 10 months already served.
