Boot Camp Clik’s style of hardcore raps over dirty samples, epitomizes classic New York hip-hop. A collaboration of famed rappers; Buckshot, Smif N Wessun (Tek & Steele), Heltah Skeltah (Sean Price and Rock) and OGC, Brooklyn’s BCC rappers led the resurgence of east coast style hip-hop during a time when the west coast’s “G-Funk” style was becoming hip-hop’s choice sound. With successful releases such as Smif N Wessun’s Da Shinnin, member of BCC helped re-invigorate east coast hip-hop. After unleashing several individual projects, BCC released its debut, For the People and followed with Basic Training: The Best of Boot Camp Clik which showcased the groups rich history of under the radar hits. Over the years, these Brooklynites have collaborated on songs with legends like Tupac Shakur, Mary J Blige and Busta Rhymes.
