That Tone Loc tape was one of the first rap records I had and I think it holds up pretty well truthfully. Used to have a DUAL tape deck/turntable in the basement of my folks' house, my buddies and I would sit down there and bump that while we played Ikari Warriors and shit. A-B-B-A.

Tone Loc - The Homies

Tone Loc - Cheeba Cheeba

and obviously Wild Thing and Funky Cold Medina are crossover classics and will be on oldies stations in 20 years. I've got a dope old Tone Loc shirt.


That's really the only rapper on that list I can full on ride for. I loved Kwame - The Rhythm but liked what the Geto Boys did with the beat better. Coolio sort of defined "studio gangster" to me, I've got some nostalgic love for Fantastic Voyage but never had any of his albums. No real love for Mase even though he's on a couple decent tracks by proxy, I had his album but it was weak and he's just a step above Puffy as a rapper to me (that's bad). I couldn't stand No Limit, there's a couple poppy mystikal joints that get play on backspin (satellite radio's old school hip hop station) every now and then and I get into em but for the most part No Limit was sonic trash and I think a big player in so much hip hop becoming vastly disposable. I'm not one of those "hip hop is dead" guys but No Limit was one of the first major players in zero quality control that I can recall. I was too old for Chingy, I can only think of that one obnoxious single from Mike Jones, and I have no idea who Ca$h Out is.

Coolio was by far the best and most successful. Mase comes second. Rest are pure ass cheeks.

No Limit had the goods. Yeah they had some trash like Full Blooded and the Prime Suspects but those guys were not selling units. Only P C and Silkk. Snoop Mystikal Mia X Fiend Soulja Slim and Tru were selling anything.

Is your list best to worst or worst to best? Cuz I see Mike Jones first and Coolio last has to be a typo.
