    Rapper Tone Loc Sought for Unpaid Child Support - Ut oh.

    Looks like he needs some cold hard cash or some legal cold medina, not funky cold medina, as raspy-voiced rapper Tone Loc is facing legal action from his ex-girlfriend over allegations of unpaid child support.

    Elise Sharkey says Tone Loc owes her $40,512 after falling behind on a year's worth of payments for their son. She claims he is able to pay up and has the funds, since he collects around $5,000 a gig and books "several shows monthly," according to TMZ. Really? Tone Loc, who hasn't had a hit since the '80s, still commands that kinda cash? Surprising.

    Loc and Sharkey are a volatile pairing. The rapper was sentenced to a day behind bars last year following a heated altercation, which resulted in his arrest for felony charges of corporal injury and possession of an assault weapon.

    What's your fave Tone Loc jam?
