DEATH ROW RECORDS Resurrects O.F.T.B.'S "Damn Near Dead"

O.F.T.B.'S "Damn Near DeadĒ is "AS RAW AS IT IS REAL!" It's who they are and they make no excuses for it. "Damn Near DeadĒ was originally produced, by Death Row in 1995/96, but never released. Death Row Records is set to release the album July 12. O.F.T.B'S music is uncut, hard core rap EVEN DOING TIME IN THE VAULT COULD NOT SOFTEN THESE TRACKS. Growing up in the Nickerson Gardens Housing Projects in the Watts area of Los Angeles is the main reason for the fierceness of the tracks. Moving out of the projects doesnít remove anger and the pain lives inside them. But, their background served them well, and O.F.T.B. succeeded with "Damn Near Dead." The album has twelve tracks plus a bonus track and also includes tracks with Snoop, Kurupt and MC Hammer. This is a must hear for die hard Death Row fans.

I'm just glad these are almost all unheard tracks with the exception of about five or so.  Happy to see this isn't a rehash of their FTP album like the WideAwake Crooked I album was.  I'll be checking for this one, i always liked OFTB.

good to see this project finally coming out after all these years
*******

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Dre -  Source 1996 cover

"Eminem will be bigger than Michael Jackson as long as he doesn't change."

-Dre, Rolling Stones mag 1999 Em cover
