That’s why I found you don’t play around with the Funky Cold MedinaFunky Cold Medina

West coast rapper Tone-Loc, born Anthony Smith, soared from obscurity into pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song “Wild Thing” a massive hit. The song was co-written by Marvin Young, better known as Young MC, as was the second smash single, “Funky Cold Medina”. The album, Loc-ed After Dark, became the second rap release ever to top the pop charts and also contained the Loc-ed up singles “On Fire”, “Got It Goin’ On” and the party-time fave “Cheeba Cheeba”. The follow up album, Cool Hand Loc, released in the fall of 1991, contains the smooth and soulful R&B hit “All Through The Night”.
