Mack 10, the prince jewel of Inglewood, California was a loyal foot soldier to Ice Cube, alongside WC. Together they stake their claim as the original rap crew to use "Slaughterhouse" as a battle-cry. It was in their denunciation of Common where hating words were administered. The Chicago rapper went on the record with his drubbing of a disintegrating hip-hop, long before Nasir Jones co-opted the struggle. Naturally, the fiercely loyal and scrupulous Mack 10 was the first to raise his hand and go to battle.
Before "Foe Life" the seminal record it is Today, Mack 10 made a name for himself defending the Coast with the Most (at the time). Let's give postdated credit where its due. Mack 10 has all the intangible traits you look for in a rapper, but sadly it never fully came together, perhaps because loyalty was seemingly more important to him than personal ambition. "Foe Life" is nevertheless one the crisper performances dating back to 1995.
Had you forgotten?
Call 911 there's a son of a bitch on the roof
Yarned up in his birthday suit
Mack 10 to the rescue
My momma wanna know why I do what I do
Cause I'm superman superbad supermad superfly
Fool you can die.
