D.I.T.C.’s O.C. Rhymes About What’s Really Important in Life…& What’s Not (Audio)
“Champagne wishes and caviar dreams” has become a popular phrase for the rags to riches motif found in a lot of music, particularly Hip-Hop. Originating as the catchphrase of the television series Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, which ran from 1984 to 1995, the saying has been featured in countless music projects but perhaps never with as much Hip-Hop acuity as “Caviar Dreams” by the Diggin’ in the Crates Crew. After members focusing on their own projects throughout the 2000s, A.G. recently confirmed that 2016 would see the arrival of a compilation featuring the crew, and they have been busy releasing new tracks.
Featuring O.C.’s tremendous lyrical prowess, “Caviar Dreams” is produced by Motif Alumni, who also created the sounds for D.I.T.C.’s “My City” and “Make ‘Em So Proud.” Built atop a flip of London Jazz-Funk group Central Line’s “Man at the Top,” it’s an ode to the noble pursuits in life – those of knowledge, justice, happiness, and personal growth. It’s also a chastisement of those blinded by the powers of wealth, women, greed, and power.
