"Pro basketball player, world renowned DJ, music journalist, Rock Steady Crew alumni, actor, magazine publisher, TV & commerical host, author, photographer…" Anyone else feeling lazy?
Jeff Staple presents us with a short piece about one of hip-hop’s favorite true-school figures, Bobbito Garcia, as he talks about the soul of music, Serato, and respect for the original architects. He even digs up a copy of an original Organized Konfusion demo tape that was passed over by Russell Simmons! I can only imagine the history that would have been made with a young Pharoahe Monch signed to Def Jam.
Old school confession of the day: Back in the early 90’s I bought Organized Konfusion’s self-titled first release based strictly on Bobbito’s glowing recommendation in the now defunct Rap Pages Magazine. I had never heard of the group and had a rough time tracking down the cassette in my area. Needless to say I was instantly converted… thanks Bob!
