Description

For this episode, we are joined by a hip-hop legend, New York emcee O.C. of the crew Diggin’ in the Crates (DITC), but he’s humble enough to not accept that title just yet. O.C. originally jumped on the scene as a guest on Organized Konfusion’s “Fudge Pudge”, the soon after on the remix of MC Serch’s “Back to the Grill”. O.C. would go on to meet the likes of Lord Finesse and Buckwild from DITC, and Buckwild would produce most of his debut album Word…Life released in late 1994 on Wild Pitch Records that would spawn classic tracks like “Times Up” and “Born 2 Live”.


In Summer of 1997, O.C. released his sophomore album Jewelz via Pay Day Records, but there was no sign of a slump here. Fueled by the DJ Premier-produced “My World” and the Buckwild-produced “Far From Yours”, O.C. had another classic in the books with Jewelz. O.C. would go on to release countless solo and collaborative albums throughout the years, still keeping his pen tight now at the age of 50.
