Curious If Organized Konfusion’s Prince Poetry Still Has It? He & Oh No Get Toxic (Audio)
Although Pharoahe Monch has had a higher profile career than Prince Poetry since Organized Konfusion parted ways, Heads can’t say that either MC outshined each other consistently over the group’s three albums. While Monch went to Rawkus Records and reinvented himself courtesy of a smash single later hurt by legalities (“Simon Says”), Po got cool with producers Danger Mouse, Madlib, and Richard X, and made two heavily slept-on gems in the 2000s (The Slickness and Prettyblack).
Just hours after Organized announced a reunion show later this week, Prince Po liberated another joint from his collaboration with Gangrene’s Oh No. This one’s called “Toxic,” and just as fumes burn the nasal cavity, this one thumps in your ears with the kind of lyricism that made Prince Poetry a lyrical giant for over 23 years and counting.
The duo’s Animal Serum LP is coming February 4th on Nature Sounds Records.
