Ray West & OC – Ray’s Cafe (Trailer and Single)

The new Red Apples 45 project continues the label’s mission to explore the intersection of jazz and classic hip-hop. This time the focus is on OC. Trailer above, description and first single below.
 

Red Apples 45 continues its boutique-style catalogue with Ray’s Cafe, this time around pairing the talent of OC of DITC and producer Ray West. This combination of talent is set in the theme of a smokey jazz cafe in the 1970s where OC is free of all boundaries and limitations. Timeless songs of love, life, loss, and glory fill the air of the cafe with mystique and inspiration. Brought to you by Red Apples 45 and Fat Beats.

OC (as part of LUV NY) – Acid

First single from LUV NY, with OC leading the charge. The sound here is a bit different from what I expected, much sparser than the soulful jazz I’m used to hearing from Ray West.

AG & Roc Marciano & Kool Keith & Kurious & Dave Dar & OC & Ray West – LUV NY (Snippets & Tracklist)

Tracklist and first tastes of the LUV NY project, all very impressive. Production is often a weak point for veteran MCs making music, but here it might almost steal the show. Ray West is a very underrated producer; the dusty jazz-funk scoring these snippets sounds appropriately nostalgic without feeling trite and derivative, on par with West’s previous work with A.G. and similar to the outstanding production on Ka’s Grief Pedigree.
 
01 Intro
02 Legacy feat. O.C.
03 Egyptology feat. A.G. & Roc Marciano
04 Snake Charmer feat. A.G., Kurious & Dave Dar
05 Extreme Status feat. A.G. & Kool Keith
06 The Ritual feat. Sean G
07 Shorties Watching feat. Kurious
08 These Rappers under the hex feat. A.G.
09 Last Night Finesse feat. Dave Dar
10 I Been Luvin U feat. Kool Keith
11 Pressure Up feat. Kool Keith & Roc Marciano
12 The Blues Got Ya feat. A.G.
13 Acid feat. O.C.
14 Random feat. A.G.
