Orginized Konfusion

"How did hip-hop get caught up in this ill rap game?" "In hip-hop, whothey following - the niggas with skills or the niggas who be hollerin’?"These are only two of the questions posed by Organized Konfusion on TheEquinox, but they are easily questions that every so-called emcee and everyso called hip-hop head should be asking themselves. There are a few groupslike Organized who are illuminating truth, trying to protect their peepsfrom getting burned by the "fire" that Monch talks about. Still, the powersthat be would have fools believe that true fulfillment comes in the questfor the almighty dollar. So we put on the gloves they give us, as well asthe matching jacket, skully, boots, and goggles, and we leap into theflames. We are so far removed from the days when hip-hop was about takingwhat little resources you had to lace folks with the illest rhyme, thedopest beat, the unbridled truth about life and how you live it. We nowsettle for silly rhymes, jacked beats, and fabricated lies…and all thistime, Prince Poetry and Pharaoh Monch have been diligently putting in workto insure that hip-hop remains original, artistic, and above all, honest!!

organized konfusion has to be one of the most talented pair mc's on this earth but yet underrated, like i said before queens have a lot of talented artist but people be hibernatin', ive always liked pharoahe better than prince, his complex rhymes and his theories can just make u picture all of that shit in ur mind, the concept they always had were always original.
Stress The Extinction Agenda (1994)- to me their best album, because of their production and especially when they really stepped up they're lyrics, its a dark album, standout tracks are Stress (it has that apocalyptic feel to it), Why (they flipped that sample the best in my opinion), Stray Bullet (usin'the wind parade by donald byrd, black moon also used this for their banger buck em down, also this song is aboutthe point of view of a gun or bullet, so they were the first to do that not nas or 2pac, at first i thought it was nas but afetr hearin this album my opinion changed, and Maintain (i love that beat, it reminds of the sunset for some reason, i can't believe rocwilder made this beat, definetely a banger) go cop this album if u can find it.
The Equinox (1997)- this was a very dark album, the production is also very cinematic, it was their last album together, but they went out wit a bang,if they just stopped beefin then we can hear some more good music from them, standout tracks are They Don't Want It, 9xs Out Of 10, Confrontations, Numbers, Shugah Shorty (i used to play the shit out of this song in my freshman year of high school),Chuck Cheese (the beginning of the song sounds like from a movie) and Somehow, Someway.
Pharaohe Monch - Internal Affairs (1999)-i remember one of my dudes tryin to put me on to pharoah monch, i wasn't really interested until he kept naggin me to go cop it, so i finally did in '01 at music factory in jamaica queens and when i heard it i almost fell out the chair, the production in this album is bananas, and this album is when i first heard of the alchemist, i didn't know who he was until i got older, and just to let y'all now this album is out of print because they said that pharoah monche illegally used the godzilla sample which is the sample he used for simon says, standout tracks are Behind Closed Doors, Queens (repped queens to the fullest), Rape (very original), Simon Says, Hell (Featuring Canibus), No Mercy (Featuring M.O.P.) (this song will get me hype or anybody hype or have ur head nodding, this song is an examle of gettin somebody hype, not that lil jon bullshit, and this was produced by the alchemist, i can picture an ill high car speed xhase with this song, any song m.o.p.is featured in u know its hot, my favorite track on the album) Right Here, The Next Shit (Featuring Busta Rhymes) (this shouldve been a single, it wouldve fitted especially around '99), The Light (very nice guitar sample and very nice video for it too, produced by diamond d) God Send (also my favorite song on the album that beat is so evil sounding and dark gave me those goosebumps) and Simon Says [Remix](Featuring Lady Luck, Redman, Method Man, Shabaam Sahdeeq & Busta Rhymes), support real hip hop and cop those album as son as u see them, peace.
