Hip hop legends DJ Eclipse and O.C. recently met with thenehiphop.com at Fresthetic in Brooklyn to discuss their career history and how they came up in the hip hop community together. In 1994, Eclipse began working at Wild Pitch Records, which signed O.C. that same year. Both artists credit MC Serch (3rd Bass) for the opportunities that helped start their careers. Eclipse goes on to talk about how the 90s was a great time for hip hop while O.C. comments on the importance of college radio and the unimportance of major record deals. The two also express their disappointment of mainstream representation of New York hip hop among other topics. Catch DJ Eclipse every Sunday from 10p-12a on rapisouttacontrol.com at Sirius XM.
