Diggin’ In The Crates (D.I.T.C.) emcee O.C. released two critically-acclaimed albums in 1994 debut Word…Life and 1997’s Jewelz, after feature appearances with Organized Konfusion. The Brooklyn, New York native’s recordings from that period which never made either project surfaced several years ago, courtesy of a No Sleep Recordings vinyl release.

Now, O-Zone Originals: 1993-1996 is coming to CD, available exclusively at UGHH.com as of September 20. The No Sleep project features production from early mentor Buckwild, as well as Da Beatminerz, T-Ray and DJ Eclipse. In addition to the demo recordings, O.C. freestyles, radio promos, remixes and alternative versions of songs are included.

In 2009, O.C. partnered with fellow D.I.T.C. emcee A.G. to release Oasis.
