O.C. chronology


Word...Life (1994)


Bon Appetit (2001)

Jewelz is the second album by American rapper O.C., released in 1997 on Payday Records and FFRR Records. Unlike his 1994 debut Word...LifeJewelz features a wider number of guest producers and rappers. DJ Premier produces four songs, while Buckwild and Da Beatminerz contribute three beats, Ogee produces two, and Diggin' in the Crates Crew members Showbiz and Lord Finesse produce one song each. O.C. plays with a wide array of subject matter on the album, from the war-metaphor battle song "War Games" with Organized Konfusion, to abstract stories on "The Crow".

The album, like his first, received strong reviews, but lacked in sales. He made his debut on the Billboard 200 chart when the album peaked at #90, and also made his first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with the single "Far from Yours", which peaked at #81.
