O.C. Reflects On His Day With A Whole New Flow On A Dreamy Ray West Beat (Audio)
If you listen to O.C.’s 1994 debut album Word…Life you’ll get some deeply introspective MC’ing. O is a master at calling back to childhood memories, or analyzing a situation differently after the fact. While he’s worked with production kingpins like DJ Premier, Buckwild, and Da Beatminerz, O’s beat-selection always puts the top-billing in the hands of the rapper, something increasingly rare over time. On this new joint with Ray West, from the Bronx, who has worked with other D.I.T.C. cats like A.G., O zones out on a trippy, afternoon beat.
