The Best of Mac Dre is the first "best of" album by Mac Dre. It was released in 2002 by Sumo/Thizz Entertainment ©. It is the first compilation of his hit songs, later followed by The Best of Mac Dre, Vol. 2 & 3. Though Mac Dre was killed by gunshot on November 1, 2004, his Bay Area legacy lives on through his music. This album features other Bay Area hip hop legends such as Keak da Sneak, Messy Marv, and San Quinn.

The album contains some of his earliest hits and classics; some dating back to the early 90s. The fact that it is 2 discs shows the amount of music Mac Dre put out during his short life. Though he never hit the mainstream quite as large as some other West Coast artists, his songs have influenced many other Bay Area artists and have inspired cultural phenomenons such as the "Hyphy Movement" and "Thizz Dance". His music always kept true to himself and rightfully earned him as one of the Godfathers of Bay Area Hip Hop.
