Mack city is a West Coast rapper from the Skyline Hills Area who debuted in 2007 and released a dizzying number of tracks in later years. Born Dexter Horn, he grew up in the Meadow Brook Apartments in the South East part of San Diego. As a 20 year old serving in the Armed Forces he made his commercial recording debut in 2007 with the full-length Mix tape Last of a dying breed. Later he released another Mix tape Titled Reporting for duty. A steady stream of tracks followed – Agenda, Get em up, Bouncing off the walls, Hand I’m Dealt -- though none was particularly popular or as well received as commercial music. Moreover, Mack City struggled with personal issues during this period; for instance, he lost his mother Adelia Horn and two months later lost his cousin Nathaniel Johnson and later good friend Brandon Robinson. Three subsequent deployment stints 1 to Iraq and 2 to Afghanistan didn't affect Mack City musical output much. He continued releasing several tracks a year, a mix of solo efforts, collaborations, and mix tapes. In 2012 he release a big track “Bouncing off the walls” Which got him on shows with a few well known celebrities. Eventually he wants to be able to give back to his community by building a park or sponsoring a Pop Warner football team from his home town.
