Biography

An early friend and collaborator with the boys from Organized Konfusion, O.C. appeared on the video for the duo's 1991 single "Fudge Pudge" and gained a record deal for his smooth, intelligent raps. Born in Brooklyn in 1973, Omar Credle moved to Queens when he was 11, moving into a house across the street from Pharoahe Monch. When Monch formed Organized Konfusion with Prince Poetry, O.C. kept in contact with the group and contributed a rap to "Fudge Pudge" from their self-titled debut. By 1994, O.C. had a deal of his own, though Wild Pitch Records had little money to promote his album debut, Word...Life. He refused to record again for the label and was dropped. He appeared on Organized Konfusion's second LP, Stress: The Extinction Agenda, and the Crooklyn soundtrack, but it was almost two years before O.C. was signed again, this time by the much more viable Payday Records (a subsidiary of PolyGram/EMI). O.C.'s second album, Jewelz, was released in August 1997. Bon Appetit appeared four years later.
