The M-Pire Shrikez Back is the second album from Hip Hop group O.G.C. (Originoo Gunn Clappaz), members of the Hip Hop supergroup Boot Camp Clik. The album received strong reviews but barely hit the radar commercially, selling the least amount of records out of the Boot Camp second releases. The single "Bounce To The Ounce" received moderate airplay, but not enough to garner strong sales. M-Pire was the last album from the trio, who have since retired as a group, but continue to work with the Boot Camp Clik.

This was a much better effort from O.G.C., they left the dark sound of their debut and went in a completely different direction, using orchestration and strings to create a masterful album full of classic beats. This was slept on hard when it was released, which is a travesty as this is definitely one of the best albums released in the late 90's. If oyu have a hard time deciding which BCC albums you should have in your collection, make sure this one is up there. A definite modern classic!
