Pharaohe Monch Speaks on Organized Konfusion Reunion Show

Pharoahe Monche and Prince Po will be giving fans a second chance to see them onstage together as Organized Konfusion tonight (September 25).

The duo, who put out three albums in the 90s (1991’s Self-Titled debut, 1994’s Stress: The Extinction Agenda and The Equinox in 1997), originally reunited to perform during August’s All Point’s West festival in New Jersey, but Pharoahe tells that the star-studded show’s price tag turned off their core audience.

“That was incredible, but there was a crazy rain storm during that performance so this is a chance for the personal fans to come through to a local show at a more personal venue,” Monche told XXL. “Those [All Points West] tickets were so pricey because there were so many acts and it was a festival. Tickets were supposed to be $250, so the people that wanted to see Organized were kinda outpriced.”

Organized will be joined by DJ JS-1 and fellow 90s outfit Poor Righteous Teachers at New York City’s B.B. Kings Blues Club & Grill tonight at 11 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at the club’s website or at the venue. –Jesse Gissen

        That show will get more walk-ins than anything.

          I still have all 3 albums. On cassette, ha!

          “Organized Konfusion” got me through the 9th grade.

          Pharoahe never got the credit he deserves. Unfortunately, probably never will.
