Originoo Gunn Clappaz, O.G.C.
Hardcore hip-hop trio from Brownsville, in Brooklyn, NY, made up of Starang Wondah, Louieville Sluggah & Top Dog. They're best known for being a part of the well known rap collective The Boot Camp Clik.
O.G.C. got their first break as a part of a group they formed with Heltah Skeltah name The fabulous Five (or Fab 5), which dropped in 1995 a single on Duck Down titled "Blah/Leflah", which soon became an underground success. The same year, they appeared on the debut album of Smif-N-Wessun, "Dah Shinin'".
O.G.C. released their debut album in 1996 through Duck Down/Priority Records, entitled "Da Storm". Though it sold less than other releases from the B.C.C. that year, it is now regarded as a golden age classic. Production was handled by The Beatminerz, E-Swift, Steele, Shaleek & DJ Ogee who all did a wonderful job to complement the 3 MCs and their guests (Sadat X, Boot Camp Clik...). Timeless album, really...
In 1999, O.G.C. released their second album, "The M-Pire Shrikez Back" still on Duck Down/Priority Records. It wasn't a big commercial success and it is less BCC-laced. It's still a very good album with a wider cast of producers. As for the guests, the Boot Camp Clik stay well represented and Havoc also appears on this album.
The trio also appeared on several compilations and Duck Down releases.
