R.I.P. 'O.G.Style'



The south has a rich history of quality Hip-Hop.....I wont even start a list right now, but if I did "O.G. Style", would easily be on the top 5.....He passed away earlier this year due to a massive stroke...His early producer "Big Boss" passed away some time ago.........This album here " I know how to play em', was ahead of it's time......Ill crime stories, menacing battle raps, sexcapades, prison yard narratives, this album has it all.....Another thing that really stood out is the production......Innovative sampling techniques, instead of amateur casio keyboard foolery..............Turn the volume up to 10, and remember a time when southern Hip Hop had a more balanced representation in the mainstream........
