Members

O.G.C. (an initialism of Originoo Gunn Clappaz) is an American hip hop group from Brooklyn, New York. The trio consists of rappers Starang Wondah, Louieville Sluggah and Top Dog, all of whom are members of the Boot Camp Clik. O.G.C. debuted in 1995 on the Smif-n-Wessun album Dah Shinin', and collaborated with Heltah Skeltah on the Billboard Hot 100 hit single "Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka" under the name The Fab 5. In October 1996, O.G.C. released their debut album, Da Storm, which went on to sell 250,000 copies in the United States. Though the album didn't receive as much attention or as many sales as other Boot Camp releases, it received good reviews and is seen by some as an underground classic. O.G.C. collaborated with the other members of the Boot Camp Clik for the 1997 release For the People, which received mediocre reviews and the popularity of the collective declined.

O.G.C. released their second album, The M-Pire Shrikez Back, in 1999 to strong reviews but few sales. The trio disappeared from the scene until 2002, when Boot Camp released their second group album, The Chosen Few. O.G.C. again collaborated with Boot Camp on the 2006 album The Last Stand. Although O.G.C. are yet to release a third album, they still perform and collaborate with other Boot Camp members.
