It was 20 years ago, 1994, when the incredible album STRESS: THE EXTINCTION AGENDA dropped on the world, further cementing the duo ORGANIZED KONFUSION’s legacy in Hip Hop history. The angst, spirituality and insane lyricism displayed on practically every song make this a classic album, one that can be played straight through, beginning to end. Stress (“Krush, Kill, Destroy, Stress”), The Extinction Agenda, Thirteen, Black Sunday, Drop Bombs, Bring It On, Why, Let’s Organize, 3-2-1, Keep it Koming, Stray Bullet and Maintain are each classic songs in their own right. For myself, it is hard to decide which one is my favorite. I try and end up naming about 7 of them!
When my MCMI partner PH explained that he booked Organized Konfusion (Pharoahe Monch & Prince Po) for a show, and that Pharoahe came back with the idea to make it a 20 Year Anniversary of the album event, featuring special guest O.C., I said “Yes!”, before he could even finish explaining. As a fan, this was an event I could put my heart into, celebrating one of my favorite albums from one of my favorite Hip Hop groups. Adding Large Professor to the bill, UG (of CellaDwellas) and all the other artists and DJ’s was a bonus, making this a truly historical event, right in my hometown Park Slope, Brooklyn! Discount tickets and VIP Package available here.
The event was originally planned for another venue, but moving it to SRB was perfect, because of its size and quality of the sound system. I am truly excited for the show Monday (January 27th) and according to advanced ticket sales, so are you. If you haven’t purchased tickets yet, you should know that besides for the discount ticket (until Monday, then it is full price, so don’t delay), there is a VIP Package which includes an official event Tee Shirt & Poster (shout out to Mic Handz with the designs), plus a goodie bag of giveaways, treats curtesy of MCMIreport.com, to thank you all for your support!
A lot of celebrity guests, friends and supporters of Organized Konfusion have already rsvp’d to the event. Hope to see you there as well!
