O.C. (Omar Credle)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Born in Brooklyn in 1973, Omar Credle moved to Queens when he was 11. It just so happened he moved across the street from Pharoahe Monch. Monch & O.C. grew up together & stayed close friends even when Pharoahe's new group "Organized Konfusion" was starting to take off...So in 1991 Monch invited his childhood friend Omar to appear in the goups new video "Fudge Pudge". O.C.'s smooth, intelligent raps got himself a record deal. From then on "it's about to be on"!

o.c. is what you call underrated,his first album word...life to me is his best album,to me its the darker version of illmatic, the whole album is hot,my stand out tracks are word...life, the remix is crazy too,born 2 live,times up of course(i heard that beat was originally for pharoahe monch),constables,ga head,no main topic,let it slide (i love that jazz sample),and story (what a dark ass song).jewelz was a good album too he did his thing on this album,he had a couple of songs that sounded like filler material but they weren't, standout tracks are can't go wrong(that beat is sick),dangerous(the best person that used this sample),far from yours,stronjay,the crow(i love that beat),you and yours(i alos love this beat),its only right, and jewelz (lord finesse did his thing on the boards), the rest are good but not as good as the first two,there's also and ill interview with o.c. at this link,http://halftimeonline.com/hip-hop-icon-series/oc/ peace crooks.

as a new yorker, i wanna send my condolences to those lives lost at 9/11, that is some sad shit, i remember that shit like it was yesterday,i went to thomas edison high school in queens i was a freshman, and i remember it was 3rd period and some white kid in my gym class was tellin me that planes crashed into the wtc but i didn't know it was the twin towers ive known it as the twin towers,and i remember that everything was closed down and fabolous was supposed to come to jamaica ave to music factory to sign autographs because thats when his first album came out but he didn't come (self-explanatory),and i remember that next day in school, alot of of the indian, pakistani and arab kids in my school didn't come back for a couple of days,it sad man it takes a tragedy to bring this country back together, not only terrorist attacks, but in general, uasually through death.peace, thanks for letting me speak my mind.
