Über Organized Konfusion
A ground-breaking duo out of Queens, Organized Konfusion changed the game with their hyper-intense lyrical mastery and complex but funky production. Formerly known as Simply 2 Positive, OK featured two of hip-hop's most inventive emcees: Pharoahe Monch and Prince Poetry. Their meandering flows and multi-dimensional rhyme style was unlike anything else at the time, influencing a whole new generation of word-spitters. They released three outstanding albums between '91 and '97, flaunting a slew of classic jams including "Fudge Pudge" (which introduced O.C.), "Stress," and "Releasing Hypnotical Gases." Organized broke up after dropping Equinox. Pharoahe signed to Rawkus Records, dropping his first solo LP Internal Affairs, in 1999.
