    Product Details

    Summary

    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 synonomous 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"

    Comment: this #### was a banger it was good to hear some legends together. spittin w/ chemistry. it was good to hear a project with some actual energy behind it coming outta that d.i.t.c. camp nowadayz. I agree megan foxxx e-blaze can eat a dick. banging ass album but he almost made it sub par with his wack ass tired beats. his beats were filler clutter in this album. oh well. I will imagine a world where showbiz and finesse entirely produced this. woulda turned out more like souls of mischief's new one... one more thing... LARS is a JEW

    Comment: glad to see O.C. and A.G. still getting out there, and you can tell by the rhymes that they still got it, but after the 1st track it loses me production-wise...could be that I was anticipating a real head-nodder, DITC style, which it is by far not

    Comment: The album is decent..worth listening to. OC is good at picking beats but it takes more than a classically hip hop produced record (smooth beat digging samples over boom bap beats) to make a banging album (you need a special blend of beats and rhymes and this album dosent have that...at most it is a peek back into the 90's when things were much more simple and underground but it dose not capture that "magic" 100%). I did not hate this album, I did not love this album...but I kinda liked it. So lets just say you won't be blown away by it but you will enjoy some songs but not exactly snapping your neck off the spinal cord.

    Comment: OAsis, OC & AG's lastest work is Boom Bap original rap. These two veterans of Hip Hop are fire. In comparison to Ace & EdO - OAsis falls slightly short from spitting flames and the album does lack flow from song to song. OAsis however has street beat credibility something Arts & Entertainment lacks. Pound for pound get the album. Hip Hop heads will enjoy it. Final comment, AG and OC hold their own heavy weight title but they should have pushed their lyrics a bit harder. Then again the competion on the radio is none.

    Comment: To Fresh and D-train! I admit I should have phrased my evolving comment in a much better way and as a result its been misinterpreted but thats clearly my fault. The production should indeed maintain that raw feel but the use of the evolving phrase shouild have been replaced with not sounding dated but maintaining that classic D.I.T.C production, in addition tosubject matter from life experience as D- Train quite rightly stated. I'm also pining like a dog over the classic 80s and 90s shit for real and I'm bumpin it continuously so I'm feeling you on that one Fresh! Enjoy the festive season guys! Peace!

    Comment: this one really let me down. I'm at a loss for words really, I just disagree whole-heartedly with the direction of production on this. "2 for the money" is the only song that sounded like what I thought this entire joint should have been... I just feel like eblaze & statik's beats dont match ag or oc's style at all. this album shouldve been handled by finesse and show... and thats it. hate to say it but about 3 songs in your going to feel like taking a nap, its that bad...

    Comment: Good points Fresh and I agree with you.. The Evolving part for me would be subject matter, their not 23 so their probably in a different place in their lives at 40...As far as beats keep it raw as hell & do what u do... The formula don't change... I just put my kids on to Runaway slave & they loved the realness & raw sound that it had....They both like this new joint to, it gets better for me with ea listen....

    Comment: I just dont see anything that has to do wit the times. Underground hiphop stays underground. You dont see this album in your local best buy do you? only the real heads be checkin for this shit. People need to remember who there audience is. If people want to do their homework...they will. I agree that being an artist calls for comming with something fresh. but evolving with the times doesnt make sense. I could bump 80's 90's sshit all day that sounds "relevent" even now. even more so now.

    Comment: This is a very solid album, it's a 3.5 to 4.0 all day for me.. It's not grimy like 1992 but these cats aren't 20-23 yrs old anymore either... I'm an old school head but I can respect a nice album... E-Blaze didn't change the world but he didn't do a bad job either.. Like another cat said it doesn't have a lot of outstanding bangers but you can listen to it all the way thru... Much respect to my old school cats still puttin it down... I'm getting this jawn 2morrow....

    Comment: In response to fresh we both agree about the raw grit with the production as a positive attribute as stated in our comments and yes your production should reflect you but at the same time I repeat you need to evolve with the times and bring something new to maintain your die hard audience and to gain the attention of the kids in the game to maintain credibility. I've got the entire D.I.T.C back catalogue and this is a welcome addition for me due to the reasons stated! Anyway each to their own!

    Comment: Dissapointing album, starts of with some nice beats, but gets more and more boring after the third track, real waste of talent, not intresting, beent here done that, and to little Showbiz beats. Even when Showbiz does his thing, it's not like it's supposed to sound.

    Comment: What's the fuck is up with these cats who post brand new albums on blogspots? These assholes should be hung from their nuts. It's cats like that who contribute to the death of spots like UGHH, and ultimately this culture. Fuck that shit. Cats should support projects like these in order to try and preserve this music and culture. But I notice a pattern. Nobody gives a fuck about the culture anymore. Everyone can do better than the next man. That's why the game is flooded with wackness like it is. Note to all ya'll, NOT EVERYONE CAN DO THIS! As far as this joint goes, E Blaze ain't the best producer. Definitely not good enough to merit the amount of influence he had on this. However, I feel that these were the only real shortcomings on this. OC and AG are arguably as good as anyone in the game. While admittedly not remaining exactly consistent, they are still considered living, active, pertinent legends in my book. Fuck anyone who thinks different. Let it be for the enlightened. So for you duck cats out there who post new albums, all I can really say is let the album breathe for a little while at least. Overstand what you are really doing.

    Comment: I'm amped for this release. I loved both O.C and A.G back in the day when D.I.T.C was dropping hammers in the underground. O.C's LP "Jewelz" is one of my favorite hip hop albums of all time; I think it was also one of the most slept on LPs ever. A.G has always been sick. The Madlib produced "Frozen" is sick and I love the song "Weed Scented" with Guru and Primo. Oh and his collabo with Sadat X Ju Ju and Marco Polo on "Port Authority" was straight science. These dudes are good emcees and I hope this is a classic.

    Comment: @Jriggs, I do agree with you in the aspect in witch if you "DIG" and I mean dig you can find some good stuff, For example ; EMC , Marco Polo's Port Authority with all those great calabs, Black Milk, Jake One, Pumpkin Head. I even dude most of that new Cormega Album but my point is that through the 90s literally every couple of weeks someone produced and or dropped science. Their were DJ'S that were known for dropping shit. I guess your right when you say that hip hop is not completely dead cause I'm still digging just waiting for some of that good old underground to drop. I just hate getting all hyped up for a something that ends up being just a dust collector on my shelf. Thanks for the response, keep hope alive. JAYDEE72...ONE

    Comment: @JAYDEE72 I agree completely with what you said except that hip hop isn't dead man. There is good music out there, but you will have to dig usually. I get what you mean in regards to legends hooking up and making sub par material. Because that is the case with Edo G and Masta Ace. That album was good but could have been better. I hope this album will do exactly what it's supposed to do.

    Comment: I hope this calab Duo isn't another industry diplo to get people to run out and buy this SH_T... just cause they got some great MC'S and a couple old school producers to put it down doesn't necessarily mean that the sh_t is going to be tight. The UNDERGROUND scene isn't what it used to be, the beats and rhymes will NEVER mirrored what we all experienced through the 90's. I'm tiered of getting all hipped up to go run out and by another CD thinking that it will match up to what was, but let's face it... what was was and what is is , even with to of the greatest team of MC'S and producers believe me BANG FOR BANG it's just not the same. Hip Hop is truly dead and has been for a long time. It's a shame because I only wish we could take it back to the good old days when just about everything that came out on the underground scene was dope. I've got multiple recorded tapes with the Baker Boys on their Friday Night Flavor shows where every weekend you knew that someone would kill it with some dope sh_t... But like I said what was was and what is is.. hip hop is truly dead. UPS TO BIG.L , REST IN PEACE...

    Comment: some good convos going on here.big ups lars, jaz and rob. I think obviously the underground which has been around for a minute with great and notable emcees with heart and who kill it on the mic day in and day out. But I think even most recently that the underground scene has some fire under their asses and putting out some dope albums. look at what has come out within the past 3 or 4 months alone (ex. blaq poet, double barrel, dj js-1, skyzoo, raekwon, cormega, apathy, masta ace & edo g and soon to be o.c and A.g. im loving it. but yeah "online stars" is the way to go apparently to the mainstream heads or you wont even get a look. heres the recipe these days: get a colorful image with some ringtone type sound, mixed with a little auto tune and a myspace page. look at the brightside, all you need now is mediocre lyrics about, $, biddies, and 80 inch rims on your escalade

    Comment: good call LARS..i think media DOES play a part but to me it doesnt matter either way..there IS dope music out there..its NOT going anywhere..i support it , you all support it..so it doesnt matter if the rest even know it exists..and there is NO excuse for not getting ur name out there these days..internet provides all the outlets u need to get noticed

    Comment: Record companies are not signing hip hop artists until they can make themselves into "online stars" first. You need a fan base buzz before they sign you these days. So I STRONGLY disagree that "mass media" has anything to do with it. In fact, mass media is dying because the internet is taking over. Television stations and print media is dying folks....no more excuses to get your sh*t now.....

    Comment: great points...i wouldnt worry bout it though..its better that there is a seperation..and a clear seperation at that..the gap between commercial rap and underground/independant hip hop, continues to grow larger and larger by the day..like a civil war of sorts we have our sides...we know whats right..so fuck em..yfeel me?

    Comment: TruSchoolDefenda You are right, that is why we need to keep doing what we can until we ahve the proper backing. LARS I have to disagree about the internet thing, we have that but The mass majority of people won't see it unless they are looking for it. The media doesn't have choice because they are all caught up in what TruSchoolDefenda said. That is why we need to keep pushing for someone at the top that loves REAL HIP HOP to start pushing it whether it is a ceo of nationwide ins or a billionaire Hip Hop head. It will happen I am sure, I just hope sooner than later. God Bless!!!!!

    Comment: There's no excuse to get product out to the masses these days...the internet has bypassed "mass media"....Artists can make music now and get it out without major backing. All they need is to record their stuff and get it out online.

    Comment: Hey Rob..I'm sure many share the same vision as you, I know I do at least. Unfortunately though, all mass media outlets("ones in charge with the funds") are government sanctioned and therefore the majority of control is in the governments hands. And their best interest is to keep society as dumb as possible, therefore easier to control. People becoming intelligent and uniting is the worst threat possible to their power. So they are in fact CENSORING Hip Hop, but in a less obvious way, doing so by "pushing" all this mindless garbage music, which ends up putting the concious meaningful music out of sight. These radio stations arent changing cuz it boils down to one simple thing: they care more about money than they do Hip Hop culture. They're not like u or me. They're under the governments spell. The whole cultures been infiltrated. They've commercialized every element too. But yeah man, we gotta take it back. Somehow, someway...

    Comment: It sounds good on paper (an old school all star album)...but that will never happen. It is too hard to make good albums and to throw random people in the mix will not work. There has to be chemistry... without chemistry, you have trash. Many of these artists don't make music like they used to, so hopes of yester-year's magic to come to life in 2009 is moot.

    Comment: I think all the great artist like Craig G, Large Pro, Sadat X, Lil Dap, Guru, BDK, Kool G Rap, etc should come together and make a 3 disk album with production from, Biz Markie, Lord Finesse, DJ Premier, etc. Maybe they can get something together and blow the world away with knowledge and righteousness just like they did in the 80s and 90s. I can't wait until I get a million because I would fund it all myself and give the earnings to help kids and young adults understand more about REAL HIP HOP. I would do it through media outlets and showcase the artist I love and have learned all my wisdom from every since 1983! That is whats missing-unity and love for the music.check operation take back hip hop. That message and a lot of artist with their point of view would be heaven sent. If You feel the same way then PLEASE talk to Your local radio station and ask why they continue to poison our youth with mindless garbage all day. The ones inn charge with the funds should act now and stop sleeping on the REAL Hip Hop. iT ISN'T GOING TO CHANGE UNTIL SOMEONE CHANDES IT. gOD bLESS.

    Comment: I just hope they don't have any sell outs on this and keep it in house on production. If any guest have Craig G, Large Pro, Sadat X, etc. We need a solid album to rock from trk 1 to the end. I am sick of great artist bringing out songs with complaining artist(emo rappers) or the sell outs. Keep it the same and only change with the times, or else get dropped like dime-Big L. You never hear Lord Finesse or the rest of the D.I.T.C. complaining how hard it is so I hope this album at least stays true to what we all know and love.
