Great Mac Dre Article

This guy Gabe Meline really nailed it with his piece on Mac Dre in the most recent issue of the North Bay Bohemian. I'm usually EXTREMELY disappointed in the Bohemian's coverage of hip hop, or lack thereof really, but this is a very well thought out piece which includes some little known information and some real great convos with Dre's mother, Wanda Salvatto aka Mac Wanda and his aunt. And the fact that they made it a cover piece is even more impressive to me.

This is another great collectible to add to your Bay Area hip hop archives so shoot on up the North Bay and grab a copy or two if you get a chance.

My favorite part:

Then there was the time he surprised Dedrick and Salvatto by showing up out of the blue during a camping trip at Lake Mendocino.

"Here comes Andre with a silver Mercedes," she says, recalling Dre in the rugged outdoors, "in his nice clothes, with his Burberry briefcase! It was just so funny."
