A trifecta of actual facts about Bay Area rap on this humid friday evening:
Numero uno reason why Mac Dre & Khayree were one of the greatest rapper/producer partnerships ever: they made a genuine classic 5/5 rap song where Dre rapped over the phone from jail for nearly 6 minutes in I'm N Motion.
Be nice if some of the folks pontificating about Lil B being the most influential rapper of the last 5 years would acknowledge just how much a product of Oakland he is: Mac Dre was stylin' in Vans Eras a couple of years before The Pack dropped THAT song; B was the member of The Pack with the deepest voice until he switched his whole tone up and started rapping through his nose after DB Tha General dropped Welcome To The Navy in 2007; B's whole penchant for referring to himself as pretty and Jesus was liberally nicked from Husalah.
If Brian Coleman doesn't dedicate a chapter to Mac Dre's What's Really Going On EP in his next Check The Technique book then he's probably workin' for the FEDS. Top 5 EP of the early '90s no competition.
