The Bay Area was home to Fillmore Slim, and the setting for 1973's The Mack, and you better believe no local rapper is going to let you forget either fact. This occasionally creepy song was an unlikely hit in the Bay Area in the '90s, toned down to "Mack of the Year," with much of the violence against women removed. Dru Down is one of those people who you can tell, from his voice, that he has a jheri curl.
