Within the span of a decade, Mac Dre released a plethora of albums, not only full-lengths under his own name, but also multiple volumes in the Rompilation series. When his best-of finally appeared in 2002, it was about time a collection of this underground West Coast Bay Area rapper's music was compiled. Tha Best of Mac Dre goes back all the way to the early '90s, when Dre was recording albums for Strictly Business, compiling several songs from his Young Black Brotha (1993) album. There are a total of 32 songs on this best-of, spanning the distance of two discs. This is undoubtedly the place in Dre's huge discography to begin if you're new to his music.
