Mark Morrison's "Return of the Mack" is a classic song with maybe an even better video. Released in 1996, the song was No. 1 in the U.K., and charted as high as No. 3 on the U.S. Top 40. And 19 years later, this shit still bangs. Play it at a party and watch as everyone reenacts the video and his accent. Unfortunately, this was Mark's peak. Since the song's release and subsequent success, he's had various run-ins with law and never gave himself a chance to make another hit.
Even still, not many can lay claim to creating a timeless tune. The song was produced by Cutfather & Joe, the former having a hand in numerous Top 10 singles throughout the years. But more importantly, the "Return of the Mack" music video is arguably music video directing extraordinaire Jake Nava's greatest creation.
