Los Angeles rapper Candyman was featured backing Tone-Loc before he earned his own solo stint. His 1990 debut, Ain't No Shame in My Game, scored a Top Ten pop hit with "Knockin' Boots." The following year, he released another less successful LP for Epic, Playtime Is Over. He released I Thought U Knew for I.R.S. in 1993, which also failed to click. 2000 saw the release of Candyman's Knockin' Boots 2001: A Sex Odyssey, an album featuring his 1990 hit single remixed and new cuts as well. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi
