In 1995 Mack 10 emerged from the West Coast, amid the much publicized tension between the East and West rap scenes. Ice Cube collaborated with Mack 10 on his first hit single, "Foe Life," and soon thereafter they formed Westside Connection with WC and released Bow Down.
In addition to the Westside projects, Mack 10 has released solid solo records, including Based On A True Story, Recipe, and The Paper Route.
