iTunes Editors’ Notes

One of several albums Mac Dre was working on at the time of his death in 2004, Starters In the Game finally found release in 2008. The album was originally conceived as a collaboration with the San Diego duo Sidewayz, comprised of Beta Bossalini and Macnificent. A song simply titled “Unreleased” shows how well the Diegans fit in with Dre and his Vallejo brethren. Over a beat that can only be described as Cypress Hill on LSD, Beta lets loose an intoxicated verse that matches Mac Dre’s cracked, relaxed deliver. The Sidewayz boys join Dre and mutual collaborator Suga Free for the standout track “What a Hit We Made,” which utilizes a sample vaguely related to “Fiddler On the Roof” for several proclamations of pimp wisdom. The album is filled out from tracks featuring Mac Dre’s Bay Area disciples, including Johnny Cash, Guce, Mistah FAB and Turf Talk. While Dre a capellas are in some cases blatantly attached to songs authored by other rappers, many songs—including “Hella Dumb” and “I Step Up In Here” — are very much in the spirit of the Furly Ghost.
