Bay Area rap legend Mac Dre is buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, California, but we can’t tell you where because people keep stealing his gravestone. If you call the cemetery office to ask where to find him, you’ll get hung up on. Rumor has it the city of Oakland purchased this most recent stone, but I haven’t seen that in writing anywhere. Interesting story, well sad, really, is the mess that was Mac Dre’s funeral, as grips of his relatives were turned away from attending the service. (Read more here.)

This afternoon I listened to Flockaveli and finished assembling and stapling the copies of “Dead Rappers,” my contribution to Dog City #2, an anthology I’m coediting with some friends. It was great. I’m pretty happy with how it came out and the rest of the stuff that’s going into the issue. Dog City #2 debuts at SPX in around two weeks, watch this space for more updates.
