Product Description

Legendary New York MCs, O.C. & A.G. return from a brief hiatus to quench the thirst of hip-hop fans worldwide. The album, refreshingly titled, OASIS, is executive produced by Show (of Showbiz & AG fame) and features stellar production by Show, Lord Finesse, E. Blaze, and Statik Selektah. O & A, longtime friends and crewmates, first collaborated together on the classic track "Weed & Drinks" and ever since then talked about doing a whole album together. "Its was organic cause the chemistry was also so crazy, explains OC. "The whole process was really pure and from the heart and hip-hop fans are gonna love it!", says AG about their new album.

Born in the Brooklyn and raised in Queens, O.C grew up across the street from another lyrical legend, Pharoahe Monch of Organized Konfusion. That neighbor spawned O.C's recording debut was in 1991 on Organized Konfusion's classic "Fudge Pudge. O.C. was tour when he first ran into D.I.T.C. members Lord Finesse & Buckwild. After the tour, Buckwild and O.C worked on a demo that would eventually become the Wild Pitch Records classic, Word.Life which contained the classic lyrical assault Time's Up, later featured on Eminem's biopic, 8 Mile.

Andre the Giant, better known as A.G., began his rise to acclaim the day Lord Finesse showed up at his school to challenge any lyricist that dared to battle. AG stood up to Finesse, line for line and Finesse couldn't help but take notice of the hungry rapper. While in the studio contributing to Lord Finesse's upcoming LP Funky Technician, AG met Showbiz for the first time. The bond was instant and the newly formed duo began their career by selling self-financed Soul Clap EP out of the trunk of Show's Acura Legend coupe. Their first LP, "Runaway Slave", put the spotlight back on the Bronx and heavily influenced the whole modern East Coast style of rap. Their sound was a combination of mobster influence, thoughtful lyricism, and amazing production that became synonymous with the D.I.T.C crew.

With a combined 10+ albums under their belt, its amazing how the guys stay relevant after all these years. A.G. explains, "For me, it's the passion, when you're passionate about something, you stay inspired, through the good and the bad". When speaking about the significance of the album title OASIS, O.C adds "It's 2009 and both AG and myself have something new and fresh to offer. Fans have been searching for something like this for a long time and finally here it is."
