All The Mac Dre Lyrics For When You’re In The Buildin’ And You’re Feeling Yourself

Each November marks another year since Bay Area legend Mac Dre was slain in Kansas City back in 2004. The murder remains unsolved, and now 12 years later Dre’s legacy still lives on through his insanely deep discography and his impact on culture in the Bay and beyond. Major artists like Drake pay homage constantly, he’s been immortalized as a Jeopardy answer, his music was a crucial detail in the Oscar Grant film Fruitvale Station and his fans are keeping him alive with the Thizzle Dance Challenge.

Part of the reason why fans have grown so attached to Dre was because his music, especially late in his career, was feel-good, party music. It was designed to come blaring through huge speakers while you were having a damn good time somewhere surrounded by friends. Since so many people consume his music this way, for most fans, it’s attached to great memories and carefree moments in time. Dre was all about having a good time and feeling himself, being confident, cocky and just enjoying life. So here’s some of the Mac Dre lyrics that’ll get you going, feeling yourself like he always did.

“Be About Your Doe”

“I’m dipped in butter, everybody jocks my style
Cal hat pulled down to my eyebrows
Polo geared down, I’m in her ear now
Stealing it, she’s feeling it, it’s all clear now”

“Dipped When They See Me”

“I smoke backwood blunts cuz they the most expensive
Me no work don’t touch no nuts and wrenches
You always see me shopping like it’s Christmas
I’m always tree shopping like it’s Christmas”

“Boss Tycoon” (Feat. Yukmouth)

“I ride around town in my clean ass Benz
Range Rov, Cougnut on some clean ass rims
Felt like Ted Turner, I pack a lead burner
Spit it, to get it, can’t quit it, I’m a bread earner (ch-ching)
Post up at the 5-star telly
Dre touch mo’ bread than the motherf***ing deli”

“Doing What I Do”

“I’m in the drop wit the Cali sun heating my dome
Feelin’ like a movie star when I slide
They know who the hell we are when we ride”

“Genie Of The Lamp”

“I went from sleepin’ in cars to livin’ residential
A street star, you can check my credentials
Ronald Dregan, livin’ presidential
Expensive utensils, not the essentials”

“Early Retirement”

“I’m doper than a Bobby Brown piss test”

“California Bear”

“It ain’t fair, n****s like me is rare
Hard to find, you might not find one like me anywhere
You can search tall trees, the bottom of the seas
N***a please, they don’t make them like these”

“Miss You”

“You never met a n***a like Dre before
Been doing player sh*t since ’84”

“There Is A Song For You”

“Time slipping, late, I’m on my way,
Ain’t enough hours in the day, to be Dre
I’m El Presidente, I run things
Tote gun things, and never run from things
Braveheart but I’m not Mel Gibson
I’m dope like coke that was cooked in the kitchen”

“Since 84”

“I’m winning, fat lady, start singing”

“Not My Job”

“When I dip, they trip off what Furl dressed in
Plus I got a mouth full of girl’s best friend
I’m a Back to the Future, new game kinda n***a
Y’all lames is plain, drinking the same kinda liquor
Wearing the same kinda clothes”

“Get Stupid”

“Get stupid, it’s what we do good
Ghostride the whip while we dancing on the hood
I’m amped feeling good, I’m hyphy”

“Feeling Myself”

“I’m in the buildin’ and I’m feeling myself”
