O.C.’s been working lately. After dropping Ray’s Cafe, an album with Bronx, New York producer/D.I.T.C. affiliate Ray West, Mush is back with “B-Boy Stance.” The Brooklyn and Queens native (he’s always claimed both) recalls his ’80s childhood, and undying obsession with Hip-Hop at its purist level.

Interestingly enough, the whole Diggin’ In The Crates collective stems from mentoring by DJ Jazzy Jay, who was Afrika Bambaataa’s right-hand-man (and often the one actually cutting the records) since the early ’70s. While O, like Big L, was part of D.I.T.C.’s non-B.X. faction, he shares that royal lineage to Rap’s pioneering days. Produced by DJ Force, and out on 7″ vinyl (on an Australian label, as seen on our Australian homies’ site), this is a toast to that:
