MAC PHIPPS PUTS CONTROVERSIAL PRISON BID BEHIND HIM WITH HIS FIRST ALBUM “Son of the City” IN 23 YEARS

Mac Phipps has announced his first album in 23 years, Son of the City, which comes just over a year after he was released from prison following two decades behind bars.

The former No Limit rapper was convicted of manslaughter in 2001 and sentenced to 30 years in prison. Mac, who always maintained his innocence, was released on parole on June 22, 2021 after serving 20 years of his sentence.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday (October 20), Mac surprised fans with news of his first full-length project since 1999’s World War III.

“The wait is over! The Son of the City album is dropping on October 31st!” he wrote. “A very special thank you to everyone that has continued to support over the years and to everyone who made this album possible.”

Mac then went on to highlight the cover art for Son of the City, which was included in the post. “The style of my cover art might look familiar to some of you. The dope ass cover is by none other than @bmike2c. A huge s/o for this one!”

Check out Mac’s Instagram post below:

 

Mac (real name McKinley Phipps Jr.) was arrested for the February 21, 2000 murder of 19-year-old Barron Victor Jr., who was shot and killed at Club Mercedes in Slidell, Lousiana where Mac was preparing to perform later that evening.

The New Orleans native was arrested and convicted on manslaughter charges despite lacking evidence on a 30-year sentence.

In April 2016, HuffPost got its hands on a leaked videotape confession which featured a security guard working on the night admitting to pulling the trigger. The guard still was not charged and Mac remained behind bars.

Mac released a pair of solo albums on No Limit Records in 1998 and 1999 and also contributed to a collaborative project titled Goodfellas with the 504 Boyz in 2000. His Shell Shocked LP peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200
