"I don't care who don't likes him and/or never like his style. 'Cause he's my favorite old-school rapper alongside Young MC, MC Hammer, EPMD, Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, Chubb Rock, Public Enemy, just to name a few artists from that genre.
You see Tone-Loc always keep it real w/o ever negating the positive images that's behind hip-hop. I consider this an album that shows real sides of whats happening in the world of hip-hop right now, one that shows people that kind of rap music is worth listening to.
Now ya'll think he's the worst rapper 'cause he can't rhyme or sing? Are you saying that this s**t is wack? Hell haw, if this is not 4 you, you shouldn't buy it.
That's why a lot of people are hatin on rap right now b/c it's lost its message and/or its voice. I pray we keep our soul alive in the industry w/o ever falling apart.
Every music or must-have fan should have this 'cause they missin' a lot of real stuff that it's happening 'round our culture.
Long story short, my 1st favorites from the album are Funky Cold Medina, Wild Thing and Loc'ed After Dark. I know I love every song I download off this album.
This is highly recommend 4 those who wants to hear real hip-hop. For instance, if u see BROWN SUGAR or ever listen to Kanye West's classic album THE COLLEGE DROPOUT you would know there's a difference between them making a new direction in the hip-hop culture.
I would love for Tone-Loc to come back with a new album in the near future. No rap fan or non-rap lover should hate on this."
