Album Notes
Mac Money aka Montiae McHenry has worked diligently and waited patiently for his chance to shine on his own solo project. Over the years, he has opened shows for big name acts like E-40 & the Click, Ruff Endz, Mac Dre, the Luniz, and N2Deep. He has also done his share of guest verses on various projects including Illtip Magazine's "City of Dope 2000," Mr. D.O.G.'s "Ghetto Politics," Lou Nutt's "Da Morgue," 2 Real Record's "Guilty til Proven Innocent," and's "NW Ridin."
After appearing on the first single of NW Ridin titled, "Take It Off" (which received spins across the nation as well as in Africa, Canada, and Australia), he has signed with Bow Wow Records, and began constructing his debut album.

His West Coast-Reality based lyrics touch on serious matters from the view point of a struggling young Black man, with vivid descriptions in each bar to entrap you into every track. His delivery has made his upcoming debut album, Tales of a G, one of the Northwest's most anticipated indie albums, and it's scheduled to drop August 13, 2002. On it, he shows he can hold his own while collaborating with names like Mr. D.O.G., Yukmouth, and Maniac Lok.

For example, in the song, "Just Dippin," Mac details an evening of just pure energy, roaming throughout the town, meeting and greeting others in search of fun. He has been compared to W.C. with his street style delivery and it is obvious why when you listen to this bouncy tune.

In "What's Your Reality" he asks you, the listener to depict what it is that you believe and then gives you bits and pieces of his reality at the same time. On this classic, his lyrical deliverance reaches you on a spiritual level like some of the music from the late great, Tupac Shakur.

Mac Money believes that rap should be kept on a reality level and that rappers shouldn't be influencing others to follow footsteps that they themselves have not even taken. Mac was quoted as making this statement. "I think rappers should stop pretending to do 50 murders in a song and still don't have a criminal record. Rap already gets the blame for a lot of violence and negativity, and those who have not lived what they preach defeats the purpose of expressing the poverty in which you live in, in order to overcome it." He continued, "When I speak on violence in my rhymes, it's just me painting a picture of what I experienced and showing how fabulous it's not, hoping to discourage others from following suite."

When I asked Mr. D.O.G. about his acquiring of Mac Money he replied, "Mac Money was what I felt Bow Wow Records needed to advance to that next plateau in this music industry. He has a hard but almost elusive flow, which compliments my style nicely I know what he can bring to a track, energy and excitement and I can't wait to unleash him on the ears of hip-hop junkies abroad."

Bow Wow Records recently released the long anticipated debut album from Mac Money titled "Tales Of A G". Mac Money's been down with the label for a while now and after appearing on several projects including Mr. D.O.G's "Ghetto Politics", BWR2000's "NW Ridin Compilation" he's about to show the world he's more than just Mr. D.O.G's sidekick. The album opens with the thug lord himself Yukmouth kicking game on the intro. "Keeping It Real" is the albums first song and Big Squeeze laces a phat beat while Mac Meezy spits some of the albums hardest lyrics, a definite rewinder, this track is sure keep heading nodding for awhile. The albums first single "Just Dipping" is another standout track that will keep folks on the dance floor. "What's Your Reality?" features a preachy Mac Money over another sinister beat from Big Squeeze. Mr. D.O.G. pops up on "Having Thangz", the always-tight combination of Mac & D.O.G. shine on this track as Funk Daddy drops a solid beat. The recently departed EastSide Rider, Shaolin, drops a hot verse on "Way Other" while "United We Stand" features some of the albums best lyrics as Mac spits "Everybody to the front lines that claim to be G / We gon bring about some freedom and liberate the streets / If a nigga sleeping teach him and raise him on the G / Stand guard now or never / United on the streets / ". Mr. D.O.G. brings more heat to the jacking for beats style "Air & Opportunity Remix" which borrows Dr. Dre's "On The Blvd" beat; the charismatic duo trade flows perfectly on the albums final track and makes you look forward to the duo's upcoming album "Top Of The Food Chain". Overall this is a very good first album from Mac Money, though it did have a few pitfalls and songs that wont get much play (Hill St. Blues, The Meeting, Slow Down) but if also featured a lot of tracks that should stay in my rotation for a long time to come (Keeping It Real, Just Dipping, Air & Opportunity etc.) The production on the album, which was almost entirely produced by Big Squeeze, is solid throughout and has quite a few knocks to keep your head moving. Mac Money & Bow Wow Records is definitely something to check out!

Mac Money makes his mark in NW Hip Hop history
Mac Money - Tales of a G

I've been waiting for this shit to drop for a while now since Bow Wow is always bringing that Mob shit that you can appreciate. For those who don't know Bow Wow Records is from the North West region of America and hail from the city of Tacoma.

We recently had a taste of Mac Money on the North West Ridin Compilation plus the bangin Just Dippin single which we reviewed about 2 months back. There was no doubt in my mind that Mac Money was gonna make his mark when he dropped this album. In fact I'm just waiting for the time when the Bow Wow artists blow up nationally so that I can say "I told you so" to all the playa haters.

If you into this mob shit you gonna really love this album. Mac Money is a dope emcee and he comes correct on every track. He got the kind of flow that demands you to nod your head. From the beginning of the album when Yukmouth drops in to introduce Mac Money to the world you can also picture Mac Money diving into the studio and dropping that shit like a ton of bricks. The intro track Keepin It Real sets the album off lovely and basically he tells the people that he's here to stay, even predicting that he's gonna make it past Gold and go platinum. You know what? I believe him.

Blocc Monstaz featuring MC is a bouncy track that you can play in your ride. I'd never heard MC before but he and Mac Money make a good duo. The next track Just Dippin is already a favourite here at the AfricasGateway headquarters. It's just the kind of track that forces people to hit the dance floor. A definate floor filler.

Hill St Blues is a hot track. Shit Dubb Flex produces this very nice track and I just love those keyboards on there. This is a tight track! But, you know it looks like they put all the extra dope shit from the middle of the cd towards the end. Case in point is the hot Way Other featuring Shaolin. The production is mobbed out and that's why one of my favourite mob producers is Big Squeeze. Shaolin, who used to hang with Bullet drops a nice verse on here.

Now you gonna love Tales Of A G that has a very catchy beat and Mac Money reminded me a lot of Ice Cube on here. Big Squeeze really goes all out on here as he switches the beat just at the right parts of the track. This is a top notch track.

Probably the second best track on here has to be We Run The Streets featuring one my favourites Mac & AK. This is produced by Mac Pacino and I hope Bow Wow gonna press this shit on vinyl coz the deejays are gonna love this.

Which brings me to the best track Air & Opportunity which is a bonus track on here. Mr D.O.G. probably kicks the nicest verse on here. The production is very different and shows the strength of the Bow Wow Camp. This track is definatley on par with the already classic Take It Off single.

I'm really feeling this album however if you into the East Coast style of hip hop you might not dig this. This is straight like Bay Area mob style, so if you can appreciate artists like Yukmouth, Tech9, C-Bo and Mr D.o.G. you gonna love this shit. The only tracks I wasn't feeling was Slow Down and The Meeting.

The best tracks on here are:
Tales Of A G
Just Dippin
What's Yo Reality
Hill St. Blues
Way Other featuring Shaolin
We Run The Streets featuring Mac & AK
Air & Opportunity

2 Sicc Reviews

Tales of a G gets 5 stars
Just some talking by Yukmouth. He talks about Mac Money and then the next track comes in.

A coo beat produced by Big Squeeze. Mac Money puts it down on this track. He flows about all the other MCs who talk about what they don't do. He just says that he's keeping it real and that's how he does it. A tight ass track to start this album off with.

Another nicely produced track by Big Squeeze. Mac Money starts it off with a clean verse. More flows about keeping it real and just being who you are. I'm feeling the flows on this track and the production fits in perfectly. A clean hip-hop track that keeps it real. I'm feeling it.

Just dippin is playing in the background on this track. It's like the Budweiser commercials, except they say pimpin instead of whassup. Funny little skit.

This is the single from the album. The beat by Big Squeeze is clean and the beats get your head moving. Mac Money just rips up the mic on this track. I don't really like the background vocals on the hook, but that can be overlooked because this is a clean track. I'm feelig it.

A slower paced track. The beat by Big Squeeze is good and I like the instruments in the background. Mac Money flows about different eras of time and how they compare to nowadays. A good little idea for a track that works well. A good track overall.

Mr. D.O.G. is on this track with his unique style of flow. FunkDaddy did the production for this track. It has a slower pace to it, but it works. Mac Money flows about only having enough time to have things. I like Mac Money more, but both work well on this track.

Dubb Flexx produced this track. A little different style here, but it fits Mac Money's style well enough. He flows about where he's from and what it's all about. A tight ass track overall, I'm feeling it.

Back to another Big Squeeze produced track. A good beat fits both Mac Money and Shaolin. A couple of hip-hop up and comers puttin it down on this track. The beat gets your head moving and Mac and Shaolin rip up the mic. One of my favorite tracks on the album, I'm feelig it.

The title track has a tight beat to it. Big Squeeze again lays down another knoccer. Mac Money has some hard styled flows on this track. His flows on this track are perfect. Another one of my favorite tracks, can't really say enough about it, just bump it!

Another track produced by FunkDaddy. Mac Money does put it down on this track. The beat gets your head going and Mac Money just rips up the mic. Some hard styled flows on this track. A sweet mix of hip-hop and rap, I'm feeling it.

A hard beat by Big Squeeze on this track. Mr. D.O.G. starts it off with a coo verse. His voice is a little hard to get used to though, but his lyrics are clean. Mac Money has more hard styled lyrics on this track. Mac Money just flows on this track. Tight shit right here.

Mac Pacino produced this track. A clean beat and production. Everything fits together perfectly on this track. Everyone has a good verse and the hook is clean. I didn't like this track the first time I heard, but the more I listen to it the more I'm feeling it. A tight track overall.

A political point to this track. He flows about a lot of world news in his flow. The beat isn't all that great to me, but I like his lyrics a lot. A good mix of political points and street raps. Beat could have been better, but it can be overlooked.

His voice sounds weird on this track. It almost sounds like an old track that was put on the album. The beat is decent, but nothing special. Mac Money has some good lyrics all the way through. Not a great track, but it's a good one to give a quick bump.

Mr. D.O.G. starts this track off with a clean verse. The beat is hard and I'm feeling the production by Big Squeeze. I never heard the original track, but this one is clean. Mac Money has more of the good lyrics that has made this album a good lyrical album. A good track to finish off this clean album.

Overall this album is a very impressive debut from Mac Money. The tracks just keep on growing on me as I listen to it more and more. He is definately Bow Wow Rec. best artist. The production is clean and there are a couple tracks that knocc hard. Mac Money shows he is good lyricist and has a good style to flow with. The best album released by Bow Wow so far. Pick this up all you hip-hop/rap fans, you won't be dissapointed.
