When we last left off, Mike Relm started the Decipher Series by breakin’ down the history of the infamous Dr Octagon. But still unclear on what this new material was intended to mean, OCD has gone to their list of interpreters to get to the root of it.
AS YOU MAY RECALL
…10 years since Dr. Octagon’s groundbreaking first address to the world, “Dr. Octagonecologyst“, a musical recording with a combination of lyrical alchemy and beat science powerful enough to teleport the first human listeners to rap in the year 3000.
See, this is the beauty of the internets… some cats come at me out the blue (nh) and do something surprisingly good, that I feel everyone else should know about. This is how it should be done – just make good innovative stuff, instead of claiming to be the “Jay-Z of the 3rd ward” (I see you Brick), and good people like me will try to get you some spins.
Man, I remember not even 5 years ago, when not writing about music or listening to new music on a daily basis would have driven me nuts. Bonkers. Psychotic. There was an overwhelming urge to just blurt out verbal vomit every few days or so about the latest and greatest music of the moment, or to just sit and download or go and buy whatever was new in music- it didn’t even have to be hip hop- it could have been anything that piqued my interest.
Cheerio folks. I’m off back to the land of the Leprechauns for 9 days. Faithful followers of my adventures on here who reside in that particular part of the world can check me out this Friday (May 12th) tearing the club up (nh) in Skye, and next Wednesday (May 17th) in Thompsons. If internet access over there has progressed past the wind-up version available in Georgia, then there’s a good chance of some postings from the other side. Otherwise, this is it until May 20th.
