Vocalist
    (March 3, 1966- )
    Birth name is Anthony Terrell Smith
    Recorded 'Wild Thing' and 'Funky Cold Medina'
    Acted in 'The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (1990),' 'Posse (1993), 'Poetic Justice (1993),' 'Surf Ninjas (1993),' 'Car 54, Where Are You? (1994),' 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994),' 'Blank Check (1994),' 'Spy Hard (1996),' 'Fakin' Da Funk (1997),' 'Freedom Strike (1998),' 'Titan A.E. (2000),' 'They Crawl (2001),' 'Deadly Rhapsody (2001)' and 'Storm Watch (2002)'
    He took the name Tone Loc from his friends calling him 'Antonio Loco,' Spanish for 'Crazy Anthony.'
    He used to be a member of the Crips street gang.
    His raspy singing voice is best described as 'gritty graveltones.'
    He's a two hit wonder.
    He pleaded guilty to charges of assault with a deadly weapon stemming from an altercation with a woman (October 1993). He attacked her car with a baseball bat while she was inside.
    He was fined $1,350, placed on probation for two years and ordered to attend anger management classes (May 2, 1995).
    He is an '80s rap pioneer - the second rap artist to ever reach #1 on Billboard's album charts (the Beastie Boys were the first).
    His pop fame unfairly ostracized him from the West Coast rap community, even though his song 'Cheeba Cheeba' was at the time one of the earliest pro-marijuana raps on record, a subject explored by today's new school rappers, ad nauseam.
    Because 'Wild Thing' was so successful, almost everybody now knows the phrase as street talk for making love rather than as a moldy '60s song by the Troggs.
    In 1995, he did two episodes of 'NewsRadio' and became friends with Phil Hartman. He was deeply saddened about Hartman's murder.
    He's old school, yet toured with yung'uns such as Smashmouth, LFO and Christina Aguilera .
    When asked if he requests any of the perks other stars ask for while on tour, he stated: 'Well, you know, gimme some fried chicken and some water, you know what I mean? That's basically what I want. You gotta feed me. Just make sure I have some Popeye's Chicken or Colonel Sanders there and some water, man, and some towels. I'm not really into all that other crap.'
