Tone Loc Net Worth $1 Million

Tone Loc was born to James and Margaret Smith, and was raised in Compton, where he became a member of the Crip’s gang, as he was troublemaker in his teens. However, before the beginning of the 1990s, he managed to launch his career as a rapper, and later as an actor. His debut album was released in 1989, entitled “Lōc-ed After Dark”, topping the US charts and achieving double platinum status, which certainly increased his net worth by a large degree. Tone Loc released his second and last studio album so far in 1991, under the title “Cool Hand Lōc”, but it was a major bust compared to his previous release, as it failed even to chart, not to mention poor sales.

After that, he turned to an acting career, and has had some success. So far he has appeared in more than 40 TV and film titles, and has also tried himself as a voice actor. His debut appearance was in the film “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane” (1990), and two years later he lent his voice to Pee-Wee, a character from the animated film “Bebe Kids”. Through the 1990s, Tone Loc made several notable appearances, including in “Posse” (1993) as Angel, “Roc” (1992-1994) as Ronnie Paxton, then as Emilio in the film “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” (1994) alongside Jim Carrey, and in “Heat” (1995) alongside Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in lead roles. He also featured in Spy Hard” (1996), and “Freedom Strike” (1998), among others, all of which added to his net worth.

With the beginning of the 2000s, he has become more dedicated to voice acting, but has also appeared in several film and TV productions. Some of voice acting credits in the 2000s, include “Whispers: An Elephant’s Tale” (2000), “King of the Hill” (2005), “Chowder” (2008), “White T” (2013), and “Uncle Grandpa” (2014). To mention a few on-screen appearances, he has featured in such productions as “Thieves” (2001-2002), with John Stamos and Melissa George, “They Crawl” (2001), “Dreamweaver” (2006), and “Storm Watch” (2002), among others all of which increased his net worth by a large margin.

When it comes to speak about his personal life, little is known about Tone Loc in the media, except that he is reputed to be the father of six children, including to Elise Sharkey. He has had problems with the law, and has been arrested several times, one of which resulted in a sentence of three years probation, but also spent one day in county jail, and served 30 days of community service.
