"I'm a playa in this game, a professional, and if you ain't shit bitch I'm let ya know, that I'ma let you go ho cause I don't need ya, take em', shake em', break um', is a pimps procedure"
For those of y’all who don’t know who those lyrics are from meet the legendary MAC DRE. The Oakland California rapper is the pioneer of the legendary Hyphy movement which is still championed today by artist from the Bay Area.
Mac Dre was definitely no slack in his 15 year rap career he dropped a total of 15 Albums, dammmmmm homie was working. He even started his own record label Thizz Entertainment and produced a lot of his own music.
Mac was ahead of his time and it is unfortunate his life was taken, we can only image the direction his career and music would have taken.
Mac was killed in Kansas City, Missouri on his tour bus – he was shot in the neck when some cowards performed a drive by.
Do not be upset – family, local and major artist from the Bay come together each year to honor the late rapper hosting an Annual MAC DRE DAY. His birthday is July 5th so usually the event is held to celebrate his life.
