Mac Dre - Mac Dre's The Name
(From Young Black Brotha EP; 1989)



From Adventure of Super Rhyme by Jimmy Spicer to Adventure of Cuddie Crime by Vallejo's conman Don Juan. It could be argued that Mac Dre's The Name is Furl's most underrated song given that it's never appeared anywhere other than his first EP - not any of the numerous Dre compilations nor any official streaming service. Guess Khayree doesn't wanna shell out for that Vaughn Mason sample?

Also kinda hard to search for online since theres an album w the same name. I love this song man, def my fav rap game/crack game one. Something bout the live rocking over a break vibe feels p rare to me even for 80s rap

Don't forget the Cold Cold Capper joint where him & Coolio go at Little Bruce over Genius of Love for 7 minutes too.

Yeh shit like that being so old made me think theres gotta be similar tapes of near everyone out there deteriorating in someones garage.

You check vlads Too Short interviews? had to break my embargo they were v good, never heard the full story like that before. Also hadnt realised how big a deal the special request tapes were, Id always thought that was a brief/overstated thing n its the 45 Girls shit that blew up. Its torture though, now Ive a glimmer of hope I might hear one one day.

Definitely need to hear the Too $hort & Freddy B special request tapes for Hot Lips and King D.

Vlad's recent interviews with Greg Nice were good too because, as with $hort, he shut the fuck up and let him talk.

How much of him being prepared/researched this time you think was:

a: for the first time ever, growing up in Oakland having left some kinda impression on him

b: his fear of never being able to return if he mixes up Freaky Tales w Freaky Friday or w e

He was blatantly reading dates off his wiki page at one point but even doing that is way more than anyone could expect of Vlad lol

I think my fav Vlad quirk is thinking "Illmatic is the best album ever" is some idiosyncrasy hes all "hear me out here...." every time

My favorite Mac Dre is the old shit, phone jail raps included

Si Mane Price said...

I'm N Motion will forever be the G.O.A.T jail phone joint.

Tbf, Vlad kinda does seem to be a genuine $hort fan when he's talking about discovering Born To Mack from one of his classmates and then going to the store to buy Life Is... Too Short when it came out.

d said...

yeh true, also IMP, even though he says theyre from oakland lol

tbf he clearly smokes a lot of weed, if that video of him w the teens is any judge

how long til the vlad/bhad bhabie interview im giving him 2 weeks

No way? I was looking at my blog feed yesterday thinking he hadn't posted in a while.

Damn, his last tweet :(
