This cat Ollie Ox Grill is most definitely on some otha’ sh*t! His debut LP, “Sleezeville” can now be found on Itunes, but be prepared this album isn’t for those expecting some ol’ “Hip Hop smoothed out on the R & B tip”. Ollie Ox Grill GOT BARS, no other song is that more evident, than on the track that I’ve been killin’ since Saturday morn., “Blood Shot Skies”.
Produced by Choppy Chop-E, “Blood Shot Skies” finds Ollie Ox at his lyrical apex over an eerie backdrop that sports an undeniable MF Doom influence. But what really pushes “Blood Shot Skies” over the top is when the hook commences, the bass drops out and it’s replaced by echoing cuts and an eerie violin sample. Not normally the type of sh*t that I can sit down with and bump in succession, but “Blood Shot Skies” took me back to the days of “Madvilliany” for an instant. I’ve also included a peak at another jammie from the album, the Distruck-featured, “Ravioli”.
