*Episode 7 of the Radioscope Raw podcast features our 1989 interview with Tone-Loc.

“Wild Thing” and “Funky Cold Medina’ were unexpected hits for the 23–year-old Los Angeles native and had made him a millionaire by the time we arrived at his home to talk about “Loc-ed After Dark,” his debut album.

During the interview, Loc got candid about his sudden fame, the original intent of “Wild Thing” and its rushed follow-up “Funky Cold Medina,” his thoughts on the songs’ writer Young MC and the stigma of not writing your own rhymes. And after a little nudging, he reluctantly spoke about his rumored affiliation with a Los Angeles gang.

Also, hear the story behind his distinct voice, his excitement over joining the West Coast All Stars for the upcoming anti-gun violence song “We’re All In The Same Gang”and much more.
