and Pharoahe Monch
, who began rhyming as Simply 2 Positive
, Organized Konfusion
began working with producer Paul C and scored a deal with Hollywood Records for their 1991 self-titled debut album. Three years later, the duo returned with Stress: The Extinction Agenda
, their last album for the label. Organized Konfusion
moved to the more rap-conscious Priority label for 1997's The Equinox
, a song cycle following the life and times of two inner-city teens.
