The 100 Best Hip-Hop One-Hit Wonders

21. Shade Sheist f/ Nate Dogg and Kurupt "Where I Wanna Be" (2000)

Producer: Eddie Berkeley, Kay Gee
Album: Informal Introduction
Label: Sire Records / London Records


This song came completely out of left field in 2000, off of a compilation album of the same name that Shade Sheist and producer Damizza put together. Built from a sample of Toto's "Waiting For Your Love," it was a feel-good record that popped at radio, reaching No.1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart and staying there for four weeks. The song's success lead to a 2002 solo album, Informal Introduction, for Sheist through MCA Records. But unfortunately he was never able to match the success of "Where I Wanna Be." Songs like this really exhibit just how awesome Nate Dogg was.
