Smoke and Mirrors is the fifth album by rapper O.C. of the D.I.T.C. crew and the second album he released in 2005. It is also notable for being O.C.'s only release on the Oakland, California based Hieroglyphics Imperium label.
The album features no guest appearances at all and is fully produced by the relatively unknown Mike Loe from The Bronx (previously worked with Lord Finesse, Ill Biskits, CL Smooth and others) with the exception of the track "I'm Da Boss" which is guest-produced by The Fyre Department (a group of musicians including Eric Krasno, Adam Deitch, Rashawn Ross and Eric Coomes). In the album OC reflects on himself, his family, broken love and much on the workings and shadiness in the music business; "Behind all the glitz and hype lies the reality of the business, superficially, empty promises, bootlicking and soul-selling" is written in the booklet.
