Da Storm is the first album by the hip hop trio O.G.C. (Originoo Gunn Clappaz), released in October 1996 through Duck Down Records. O.G.C. members Starang Wondah, Louieville Sluggah and Top Dog gained fame as members of the hip hop collective Boot Camp Clik, first appearing with Heltah Skeltah as "The Fab 5" in 1995. The two groups split up to release separate albums in 1996, with Da Storm being the last Boot Camp Clik release after Black Moon's Enta Da Stage, Smif-N-Wessun's Dah Shinin' and Heltah Skeltah's Nocturnal. Of these four Boot Camp albums, Da Storm sold the least, reaching just over 200,000 copies in the United States.
Two singles were released from the album, "No Fear" with "Da Storm" as a B-side, followed by "Hurricane Starang" with "Gunn Clapp" and "Danjer" as B-sides. "No Fear" peaked at #13 on Billboard magazine's Hot Rap Singles chart. A video was shot "No Fear". A split video was made for "Hurricane Starang" and "Danjer", titled "Hurricane Danjer". The "No Fear" video caused a small dispute between Starang Wondah and The Notorious B.I.G. as it contained a Biggie look-alike when Starang said the lines, "I scare, petty MCs who claim they got gats/frontin wit hoes in videos with pimp hats/but the fact, still remains/that you're just a stain on the bottom of my boots while I'm still Starang." Starang was attacked by Biggie's henchmen at D&D Studios, and later mentions the attack on Heltah Skeltah's 1998 hit "I Ain't Havin That". "No Fear" was also used by Beyoncé Knowles on her 2003 hit "Baby Boy".
