David Mac was the editor of the Envy the Dead zine and the verbose MC of the F-Kripz, an early 90s hip-hop band that released a series of cassettes on their own Molotov Records label. Originally a promotional magazine aimed at publicizing the F-Kripz releases "Envy the Dead," and "Concentration Camp Muzak," the ETD zine soon eclipsed its musical counterpart in significance, in part because of David Mac's tireless networking in the zine community and his penchant for provocation and controversy. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1996. Some of his last writing appeared in the form of a prolonged hallucinatory screed published in Shane Williams's Flipside column right around the time of his death.
