He must have been a Wild Thang to get the police at the door. Don't worry folks, I'm sure they will feed him some slop for Father's Day. Have fun Tone Loc!

That you spend more time posting bull**** like this on your site, instead of focussing on people that are actually worth posting about and have lives, shows so many bad things about your motives and intent. You don't give one "F" about these people. But you make no money off of normal people. Turns my stomach that you cater to the ignorant for the amighty dollar.

Dang, Loc looks like a thug in this picture. Did he watch "Boyz n the Hood" one too many times? He looks gangsta. I wouldn't mess with him.
