The debut album by West Coast emcee Tone-Loc, Loc-ed After Dark features two collaborations with a pre-fame Young MC that would rocket the artist top the top of the pop charts: “Wild Thing,” the first Top 10 Pop hit for a black rapper, and the follow-up smash, “Funky Cold Medina.” The former reached #1 on the Billboard chart, while the latter topped out at #3. The net result was a #1 album, making it only the second rap album to top the charts at the time (the Beastie Boys’ License to Ill was the first).

 

RIAA certified double platinum, Tone-Loc’s debut remains a hallmark of West Coast party rock, mixed with a healthy dose of streetwise swagger. This reissue features vinyl cut under the supervision of Dave Cooley (J Dilla, Madlib) at Elysian Masters.
