Words By Marky Mark
There are a host of MCs who can claim the title of “most slept-on.” We all probably have a list of at least four and O.C. is near the top of my list. Possibly the most unassuming member of Diggin In The Crates, he takes center stage on the latest offering from the legendary crew.
Produced by Motif Alumni, “4 Da Block” is his ode to anyone caught up in living the hustler’s lifestyle. Not because they’re trying to perpetuate a stereotype or be cool, but simply because that’s their only option.
“I’m not co-signing this lifestyle
It’s what some are left with
Like a one way exit
Many are left with no hope and desperate
Hustling hard from sun up back to breakfast,
Do I judge ‘em?
Nah, whoever on them blocks
For my n****as on the blocks”
Below, two additional joints from O.C. from weeks prior – “Caviar Dreams,” also produced by Motif Alumni, and “Get With The Program,” produced by Duck Dodger. DITC is doing its best to claim Monday as their day and who knows how long it’ll continue. So let’s just enjoy it while it lasts.
You can find Marky Mark doing what he does best, which mostly consists of thinking what exactly does he do best on Twitter @AbstractPo3tic or on his podcast @beatsdimeslife.
