Tone-Loc

The burly, boisterous, baritone rapper hit the ground sprinting with his "Wild Thing," which became the second best selling single (after "We Are the World") in history. He followed that up with this album, which was just as catchy, inventive and full of juice. In the process, Tone stole some of New York's thunder and put California on the rap map.
