Boot Camp Clik
A large rap cartel from New York, BCC is an extended family of artists affiliated with Duck Down Enterprizez. With members representing Black Moon, O.G.C., Heltah Skeltah, and the Cocoa B'z, the Clik have a multi-faceted sound. After successful albums from all participants, they released their group debut For The People in 1997. Straying away from the dark and heavy sounds of their earlier incarnations, here they display a more colorful tone, employing occasional backup singers and a healthy dose of live instrumentation. Production tasks were handled by Dru Ha, Tony Touch, and Shawn J Period, among others. Rhymes continue to focus on weed, girls, the streets and hip-hop, but with so many talented emcees involved, their sound and delivery remain diverse and inventive. Ragamuffin influences are apparent, and the charismatic interplay in many posse cuts has come to define their sound.
