Mac J – Northside Story (Local Celebrity, @TrueStory_MacJ)


@TrueStory_MacJ

A New Challenger Approaches!

Name – Mac J
Location – Northside of Sacramento, CA
Label – True Story Entertainment
Rap region lineage – J-Mack, Hollow Tip, Ballin Ass Dame
Producers – DaddieRon Beatz, EZ, Gorilla Bangerz
Lookalikes – Rico Recklezz

Street-violence and gang-enhanced jail sentences somewhat stifled Oak Park and South Sacramento’s rap scenes (and the lives of those involved) but lo and behold North Sacramento’s new class has been bubbling.

Mac J’s slick wordplay and thoughtfully crafted first-hand street depictions harken back to cultclassics from predecessors Hollow Tip and Ballin’ Ass Dame but updated to reflect the current generation’s social environment & rap stylings.

Below is an 11-track playlist to serve as a primer before Mac J’s latest release, “Mac J- Local Celebrity” (True Story Ent., 2017).
