28. Tone Loc "Cheeba Cheeba" (1989)
Album: Loc-ed After Dark
Producer: Matt Dike and Michael Ross
With a voice that sounded as though Loc started smoking blunts in the playpen like a hip-hop Baby Herman, the big man from Cali sampled Stevie Wonder's “Maybe Your Baby” and helped put his label Delicious Vinyl on the rap map. Coming a few years before the world was toking on chronic, this smoky song helped Tone Loc propel beyond being a “Wild Thing” one-hitter.
