LAS VEGAS (May 17, 2018) – #ThrowbackThursdays at Flamingo Las Vegas’ GO Pool Dayclub are on fire as 1980s rap pioneer Tone Loc kicked off the season with a high-energy performance that got the crowd’s hands in the air. Kicking off the performance with his classic “Funky Cold Medina,” the OG rapper moved into rousing renditions of Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice,” and the Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight,” before wrapping the engagement with an extended version of his hit “Wild Thing.”
OG rap pioneer Tone Loc was the second rap act ever to reach #1 on Billboard’s album charts (The Beastie Boys were the first). His album Loc’d After Dark (1989) spawned the hit singles “Wild Thing” and “Funky Cold Medina,” which remain his best-known tunes. After recording his 1991 follow-up album, Cool Hand Loc, the singer put his familiar raspy voice to work on TV and film, landing roles on the TV series Roc and in films including Jim Carrey’s breakthrough flick Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) and the animated sci-fi epic Titan A.E. (2000).
