Hollywood, Calif. -- For more than a decade, Mack 10 has been on the front lines of the West Coast rap scene, as a solo artist and as a member of the gangsta rap supergroup Westside Connection. Mack 10's top solo hits and best album cuts have been compiled for the first time in a career and label-spanning 19-track CD and digital collection to be released by Capitol/Priority on December 4: The Best Of Mack 10: Foe Life.
Mack 10's ability to infuse his gritty lyrics with wit, insight and realism makes him one of the best hard-core rappers the genre has ever seen. Titled for his 1995 breakthrough hit, The Best Of Mack 10: Foe Life features the title track and other standouts culled from six solo albums released between 1995 and 2005: Mack 10 (1995, Gold-certified), Based On A True Story (1997, Gold-certified), The Recipe (1998), The Paper Route (2000, Gold-certified), Bang Or Ball (2001), and Hustla's Handbook (2005).
Key tracks on the new collection include "On Them Thangs," "From Tha Streetz," "Money's Just A Touch Away" (with Gerald Levert), and "Nothin' But The Cavi Hit," Mack 10's collaboration with Tha Dogg Pound for the soundtrack to 1997's Rhyme & Reason hip-hop documentary.
