"Funky Cold Medina" was the second Young MC penned song to become a huge hit, reaching #3 on the charts ("Wild Thing" had previously hit #2). The song used Foreigner's "Hot Blooded" as the main sample, but also sampled "Honky Tonk Women" and "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones and "Christine Sixteen" by Kiss. (Ahh, the pre-litigation days of sampling ...)
Sadly, "Funky Cold Medina" was it as far as Tone Lōc's successful rapping career went -- he would never have another charting LP or top 40 single. He then transitioned to acting, and seems to be making a decent living.
The video is Lōc-tastic and shows off his larger than life personality and sense of humor. Definitely one of our favorites from back in the day.
