3 Mac Dre Andre Louis Hicks, better known by his stage name Mac Dre, was an American rapper and record producer, founder of Thizz Entertainment record label.

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

4 Too $hort

raised in oakland most of his life

Too short only blew up because of coming out with the ghetto. Prior to that, he was known as a foul mouth, disrespectful to women, with nothing positive to say. He has no lyrical skills. Rumor has it, that while doing community service in emeryville, he ran across a city worker, and was given a tape to a young lyricist. He stoled her lyrics and came out with the ghetto the following year.

The Dangerous Crew didn't get nearly enough representation on this list.

Too short as a former probation officer and a current educator I recall when Todd shaw and mark curry were just up and coming up on oakland and performed kuvy pumps slaps making snaps take kare
