Mac & A.K. is a group consisting of fraternal twin brothers Eric "Mac Pacino" Gordon and Keith "A.K." Gordon, hailing from East Palo Alto California in the San Francisco Bay Area. The two honed their craft under the backdrop of living in East Palo Alto, which in 1992 was the murder capital of the United States. Eric "Mac Pacino" first started in a group called Black Jack, which released their acclaimed album "Streets 2 Da Grave" on Ichiban records. Mac Pacino decided to leave the group and formed Mac & A.K. with his brother. The group would go on to sign with Tommy Boy Records based in New York, which at the time was a powerhouse in the hip hop scene with acts like Coolio, De La Soul, Naughty By Nature, and House of Pain.
While on Tommy Boy Records, Mac & A.K. released their first EP "Westbound: For Riders" only on their imprint Streetlife Records. The 7 song EP was well-received and they also received a gold plaque for their song "Way 2 Saucy" featuring Mac Mall also from the Bay Area. Unfortunately, things did not work out at Tommy Boy and the group asked to be let out of their contract. The group formed E&K Music Group (http://www.eandkmusicgroup.com) and released "Money Rhymes" as their first release. That single featured heavyweights like E-40, Mac Mall, Above The Law, and local legends like Chunk and Neva Legal. The second release was "Hustle Music," which features The Game, Young Noble from the Outlaws, Chunk, Sean T, and other Bay Area Legends. The album was legendary and notably with high regard. Unfortunately, Mac died in 2013, and A.K. is single-handedly running the record label and releasing projects with E & K Music Group. Be sure to connect on their website, social media, and digital music platforms.
