Organized Konfusion and Lord Finesse Freestyle
The tape that this session came on was probably one of my first huge scores in the tape trading game where I really decided to start pursuing it more. This particular session features 2 of my favorite artists of all time rhyming together on the Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito show. This is 15 minutes of Organized Konfusion and Lord Finesse from 08-21-07 (tape was labeled). This was recorded to a 90 minute tape with the mix part of the show on one side and this side which included not only this session but some battle routines with the X-Ecutioners and DJ A-Trak which I will post next time.
These are mostly written raps but some of the stuff Finesse kicks I haven't heard anywhere else. The raps from Pharoahe Monch and Prince Po (Organized) are mostly off their most current release at the time "The Equinox". I never minded hearing verses that were recorded on albums over different beats during these kinds of sessions. Sometimes the beats that Stretch or whoever plays are even better than the tracks they would rhyme these lyrics over on their actual albums. The Wikipedia on these cats is pretty much on point so if you're sleeping on OK it's time to wake up.
Lord Finesse is one of my favorite lyricists of all time. His punchlines and swagger were always so ill to listen to. These are 2 artists that you should be up on, or at least seek out their music. Got some ill DJ stuff coming for next time!
