2Mac Dre
Mac dre is best rapper of all time if you were growing up late 90s early 2000s and into that kinda stuff then Mac dre was like a God I never danced other than slow dances with girls until I heard Mac dre. We were going crazy at the club at the house party in the Parding lot at a red light on the bay bridge stuck in traffic where ever we were dre was playing and we were going crazy dre taught me how to feel myself and I ve been doing it ever since its hella sad he died or else everyone wod be lovin him now even more Mac dre all day boi
R.I. P mac drizzle one of the biggest bay area rappers

3Too $hort
raised in oakland most of his life
Too $hort is the best but I would have loved to see Spice 1 and Rappin Ron (RIP) on this list.. and maybe give Ant Banks at least a shout out
If we votin for ORIGINAL TOWN rappers than Too Short is it... Anybody ever heard his uncirculated "tape" done over disco beats? Original dirty rapper, and that tape... I would kill to have that one back! But why ain't Seagram on this list? Can't win for losing? I know he got hit over snitchin but dang.. Put him up on the list!
