Since then Mack 10 and Cube has had a falling out, when Mack 10 had to get at Cube’s cousin. But his career jumped off with his Priority Release. K-Dee baby, WSC, and Mary Jane Girls are featured on the album.. Mary Jane Girls are blowing on the track “On Them Thangs”, “Westside Slaughterhouse” had the Westside Connect Gang, and “H-O-E-K” had KD.
Album went gold and Featured Fo Life with Cube. Since then Mack 10 has sold over 11 million records, married and divorced T-Boz from TLC, and done some acting.
Lady of Rage, whom arguably many think she is the GOAT female rapper. Robin Allen was signed to Death Row records. She has some dope history. Back in 1988 she was apart of a group the Original outlaw Brothers from Queens NY, who were signed to a production deal with LA Posse. An 80s group that had hooks in many labels. Dre found out about Lady of rage after hearing vocals on LA Posse’s album “They Come in All Colors” 1991. 1992 the Chronic album, 1193 Doggystyle and June 24th Necessarry Roughness dropped produced mostly by Daz Dillinger, Easy Mo Bee and Preemo.
