Mac Dre On The Cover Of The San Francisco Bay Guardian
I'm on a Dre theme right now so I figured people should know about this as well...
There's a very good article written in the new issue of the San Francisco Bay Guardian by Garrett Caples about the aftermath of Dre's murder. Dre even made the cover, which you can see above, via a nice painting of him done by Eustinove P. Smith. The article delves into Dre's past as well as the newfound popularity he had just prior to, and after, his murder. The point of the article though is really to open people up to the idea that just because Dre had a criminal past it didn't define him and that he should also be remembered for the positive things he did during his much too short life. You can read the article here: http://www.sfbg.com/40/07/news_dre.html, but I would also recommend trying to find yourself a copy of the issue if you can. It's a real nice piece of memorabilia for a Bay Area collector. I grabbed two of 'em for my own archives.
Also, there is an accompanying piece about Dre's label, Thizz Entertainment, also written by Garrett Caples that you can read here: http://www.sfbg.com/40/07/news_dre2.html.
