No Sleep: NSREP-004 ft. O.C.
This EP is a mixed bag of unreleased joints spanning from pre-“Word…Life” to “Jewelz”. With production handled by Buckwild, DJ Ogee, and Da Beatminerz, this is absolutely essential to anyone that has followed O.C.’s career. Not too much I can say about this; just straight up dope unreleased gems from one of the greatest lyricists ever, working with some of the best producers of the mid-90s. D.I.T.C. from this era never disappoints and it is again an honor to finally unearth these tracks. Enjoy. Song titles, creation / production details, and snippets are below.
This is already in stock (and sounds great) and all packages will ship in bulk on Tuesday or Wednesday of the week of May 9th, 2011. This series is over, No Sleep is coming back very soon with some serious heat on vinyl. New announcements coming shortly…. [source: email by No Sleep Rec.]
