Fans, friends and family of Andre Hicks - aka Mac Dre, gathered Tuesday at Fairfield's Mount Calvary Baptist Church to bid farewell to the 34-year-old underground rap star.
Among an estimated thousands, some stood in line in the church to view the body of Hicks, who also was known as gangsta rapper Mac Dre, while others milled outside.
Hicks, formerly of Vallejo, died Nov. 1 in Kansas City, Mo., when gunfire erupted from a car pulling alongside the one in which Hicks was riding as he headed to his hotel following an appearance at an event.
As the rapper's music blared Tuesday from many vehicles crowding the large parking lot, a substantial police presence was obvious. Inside the church, Hicks' body lay with a plastic shield protecting his face from unwanted kissing and touching.
