Did you know Pharoahe Monch just dropped an album, “Lost In Translation,” available for ‘name your price‘ on his Bandcamp page? I didn’t. Apparently, it is his Valentine’s Day gift to us all, released on Feb 14th and is much appreciated! (Thanks Pharoahe, we didn’t know you cared!)

The project is a retrospective collection of  previously released songs and features from 2000 to 2015, but it does include one new song “Home (HGH)” featuring Phonte’ and Tamisha. “Lost In Translation” is no joke, also featuring Jill Scott, Justin Timberlake, Will.I.Am, Mela Machinko, jazz great Robert Glasper and more!


The theme of the collection is “Love” of course, hence the Valentine’s Day release date (kinda like MCMI’s “Love Is” mixtape, shameless self-plug). Stream “Lost In Translation” or download it for anything you want to contribute (drop some $, don’t be a moocher! lol). Remember, support the artists whose music you dig, or else don’t complain about what you hear on the radio.

PHAROAHE MONCH: Lost In Translation

Prince Po & Oh No – Smash ft. Pharoahe Monch & O.C. (Video)

When this song first dropped I posted it on the site and thought that possibly they (Prince Po, Pharoahe Monch & O.C.) got together and decided reunite on this track after all rocking at the Masters Of The Underground/Organized Konfusion – Stress:Extinction Agenda 20yr anniversary show we thew at SRB back in January (EPIC EVENT BTW!). Well don’t I feel like an ass. Not only did they ALREADY make this song but they shot the video for it at OUR event! (peep the banner in the back?) There were a TON of hip hop’s elite at the event, see how many you can catch with the camera whizzing by capturing the mood of the song “Smash” off Prince Po & Oh No‘s album “Animal Serum.” now in stores everywhere. lets see I see D-stroy…Doc Ahk… Rockwilder….oh look! there’s me and Jean Grae acting a fool on stage! lmao.BJ

Pharoahe Monch – Bad MF

Fresh off headlining alongside his old partner Prince Po and re-forming Organized Konfusion for MCMI’s “Masters of the underground” show, at SRB (they tore that sh*t dowwwn!), Pharoahe Monch drops “Bad MF“, off his highly-anticipated fourth solo-LP, “PTSD” (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Pharoahe a bad MF? Was there ever any doubt? Can’t wait for this album to drop in April.

DJ GMS: The LOVE IS Mixtape (Stream + Download)


Last year MCMI Records dropped the HYDRA song “Love Is …” right before Valentine’s Day. The song “Love Is …”, produced by Keith “WildChild” Middleton, is a celebration of the Love of Hip Hop and a challenge to any rappers who do this for the money, without a true Love for the art.

Now in 2014, on Valentine’s Day, we present yo you … “The LOVE IS Mixtape”, mixed by DJ GMS, with a special intro from LR Blitzkrieg and testimonials from Masta Ace, Torae, Sha Stimuli, PackFM, Substantial, Chordz Cordero, Rich Medina, DP One, WildChild and many more, talking about what Hip Hop means to them.

GMS DJ picThis 80 minute continuous blend of amazing music is a tribute to all the Hip Hop songs that celebrate Love of music, Love of the culture, Love of being in the studio, and Love of making something special for the people!

There are so many great artists on this CD, from The ROOTS, to SLUM VILLAGE, TORAE, MASTA ACE, BUSTA RHYMES, COMMON, MOS DEF, NAS, SCARFACE, ATCQ, ERYKAH BADU, SOUL PURPOSE, PHAROAHE MONCH, SNOOP, Dr. DRE, DE LA SOUL …  the list goes on and on. And of course, HYDRA!

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!
