Benjamin "Mack B. Dog" davis was an MC and DJ affiliated with the Bay Area Solesides Crew (Lyrics Born, Chief Excel, Gift of Gab, etc.) He also hosted a fantastic rap radio show on KPFA called "Late Nite Hype."
On 2000's Solesides Greatest Bumps, Mack B. Dog appeared in intermission cuts, and offered a 90-second masterpiece called "Hot Breath."
Mack B. Dog passed away way too young in 2003, leaving only little gems like "Hot Breath" as a hint at his promise. A simple, smoky loop, and Mack's silky-smooth vocals make it a standout gem from the record. RIP Mack!
