Rare and unreleased music from O.C. from '93 and before??! This is MAJOR!!!
"After debuting on Organized Konfusion’s “Fudge Pudge” single, O.C. started traveling with O.K. when they did shows. It was on The Source Magazine College tour in 1993 when O.C. first met Buckwild, who was deejaying for fellow tour act Lord Finesse at the time. A creative union was formed and when O.C. was signed to MC Serch’s Serchlite production company, they started working on a demo… No Sleep Recordings is proud to present tracks off of that demo; six previously unreleased songs and a rare promo that was done for legendary NYC radio personalities, Stretch and Bobbito. Buckwild himself produced three of these tracks and there is also production from Mark Pearson and DJ Eclipse (from Non-Phixion fame). It is also from these early sessions that the Hip-Hop classic “Word Life” originated…"

Actually according to the homie, Werner, this has long since sold out - sorry for the confusion there.
Check out some long-ish snippets below anyway though to hear what real, deal quality 90's hip hop sounds like:
