    “I make wax, I pay tax, I don’t show cracks,” OC rapped on “Constables,” one of the many standout cuts off his debut album Word…Life. Nearly twenty years after that seminal album dropped, OC’s stayed true to those words, releasing a slew of albums showcasing his lyrical acrobatics with a variety of talented producers, including Soul Supreme, Apollo Brown, and most recently, Ray West.

    O’s latest album, Ray’s Cafe, a pairing with producer/engineer and co-head of the recently created boutique label Red Apples 45 Ray West, provides jazz-infused backdrops that compliment Omar Credle’s smooth baritone. In a rare interview with HipHopGame, the legendary OC talks about the making of Ray’s Cafe, reflects on Word…Life and the moves he’s made, his immortal crew Diggin’ in the Crates, and much more in this can’t-miss interview.
