Tha Yay Magazine #1 : Mac Dre Cover

This is probably Mac Dre’s best magazine cover and one of the hardest to get. Article inside of the life and times of Mac Dre. Top Unsigned Talent was: Kingston, D-Dubb, Big Rel, Young Squeeze, and MSC.

Xplosive Magazine #12 : Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz Cover

Cover is more of a collage, does have Mac Dre and The Jacka on it. Interesting ad for 50 Cents Valentine’s Day Massacre album I had never seen. Ciara looks hot inside. Jadakiss and The Jacka articles inside. An interview that was done 5 weeks before the death of Mac Dre also inside.

4080 Magazine #38 : Mack 10 & Gangstarr Cover 1 of 2

Two cover variations, including a west coast and an east coast cover. Cover is really red! Good article on the arrest of Mac Dre and members of the Crestside Country Club Gang. Advertisement for the Hieroglyphics – Thirdeye vision. Lol, you’re gonna love this cover: google Big Bear – Doin Thangs, it’s the same cover artists (Pen & Pixel) who did Snoops – Da Game and Silkk The Shocker’s Charge It 2 Da Game cover. Of course, then you can see one of my favorite covers, Devin The Dude on a toilet.

Most people love the issue with Mac Dre on the cover but Khayree and Dubee put it over the top. Mobbin’ fashion section with photos of Spice 1, Mac Mall, G-Nut, and Den Finn. Great articles on Richie Rich, Mobb Deep, Jeru, and then a section on Mac Dre.

Murder Dog Magazine Vol.7 No.5 : Too Short Cover

You really can’t hate on the cover with Bay Area Rap Legend Too Short. Cap 1 inside, never really blew up like I thought he would. Interesting letter to the editor from Jamal Diggs while in prison giving some insight to Mac Dre, Jamal Diggs would go on to be J-Diggs of Thizz Nation. Articles on M.O.P. and Richie Rich.

Mass Appeal Magazine #32 : Fat Joe Cover

Very impressive issue. Cover of Fat Joe not bad.  Two of my favorite sections in this issue have to be Dame Dash and Rugged Man together and Remembering ODB. I also liked the article on rap behind bars where they talk about albums and artists recording behind bars, Mac Dre, X-Raided, Tony Yayo, Lifers Group and such.

South West Bound Magazine #4 : DJ Warrior, Strong, Fingaz & More

Independent magazine in full color with West Coast Mixtape Kings on the cover. A lot of Bay area flavor in this issue with The Federation, Deebo, and a full two pages of all of Mac Dre’s albums. Last, there is a hot rapper named Crystal in lingerie on train tracks??
