O.C. & A.G. - Building an Oasis
Tuesday, December 22, 2009

The Diggin in the Crates crew is one of hip-hop’s most respected, and legendary. After collaborating on the song “Weed & Drinks” on O.C.’s Bon Appetite, DITC members O.C. and A.G. felt a musical chemistry they wanted to explore further. The initial results of that exploration hit stores in November in the form of Oasis, the first of what the duo says will be many O.C. and A.G. collaborative efforts. This week the two emcees sat down with me for a collaboration of a different kind; an interview, as both O.C. and A.G. opened up about their work, what’s been going on with DITC, and why they feel that sometimes the price of success isn’t worth the reward. Here are some of the highlights from the interview:

O.C. on one of the meanings of the album's title:
A lot of people grow up in certain situations, no money, no food, no parents with good jobs, and you have to make your surroundings like an oasis. You might not have a million dollars, you might not come from a wealthy family, so you have to make due with what you got.

A.G. on the original concept:
It started with an idea of doing a song about God and the devil. That’s how extreme we were and how deep we wanted our concepts to be.

A.G. on the price of success:
Sometimes that success might mean sacrificing your integrity, or your trueness to yourself, or your niggas. That’s too high of a price for me.
