In 1991, upon the release of Organized Konfusion’s self-titled debut, Pharoahe Monch and Prince Po not only laid a strong foundation for themselves, they brought along close affiliate O.C. along for hit single “Fudge Pudge.” By the time O.K. geared up for their ’94 follow-up, O.C. (who spent part of his youth in the same Queens, New York vicinity) was signed to Wild Pitch Records, managed by 3rd Bass’s MC Serch, and belonging to the Diggin’ In The Crates collective. The parties remained close, with Monch and Prince Poetry doing background vocals for Word…Life, and maintaining strong collaborative ties ever since.

In honor of the new D.I.T.C. Studios Sessions compilation (featuring all living members of the crew), single “Night Rider” finds O’ and P’ still running in the same gang. With motorcycles, Jason Vorhees-style hockey masks, and forest bonfires, this one has a menacing feel. However, nothing is rougher than the force each use to push the rhymes at the masses.
