Mac Dre Documentary to Premiere at SF Black Film Festival

November marks 11 years since the charismatic Vallejo rapper Mac Dre (Andre Hicks) was gunned down in a still-unsolved murder, and his friends and former colleagues still continue to keep his music and memory alive.

A new documentary on his life and legacy called "Mac Dre: Legend of the Bay" will premiere at a free screening at San Francisco's Boom Boom Room on Sunday for the San Francisco Black Film Festival.
 
The film features interviews with Bay Area artists such as Too $hort and E-40 alongside local media personalities like Chuy Gomez and Davey D.

Hicks was fatally shot in Kansas City, MO in 2004 after a concert there; the case remains unsolved to this day. Despite the violent end to his life, he is remembered as a distinctly creative individual who brought relaxed and humorous moments to his music and, perhaps most critically, to dangerous hoods in need of relief.
