OC: 'MY WORLD' (1997)
"I snatch a star from the sky, spark up a la with it. You stand astounded wondering how I did it". Just one of many lines that set this keynote gem from OC's 1997 album 'Jewelz' apart from the average run-of-the-mill filler. With OC himself fresh from the celebrated Diggin' In The Crates crew, (with then very-much-alive DITC colleague Big L cropping up on the album's 'Dangerous',) and DJ Premier on the beats, this marked a magical collaboration between and MC and producer both at the peak of their game. Just a shame there was no official video.
