Organized Konfusion - Bring It On (The Lost Remix)

Today's special guest Rap Week contributor is Burnso. He makes beats and writes tone poems.

It's hotly disputed whether or not this song is rowdier than the original version found on "Stress: The Extinction Agenda." The original sports the hook "BRING IT ON, MUTHAFUCKA, BRING IT ON…" spit by 35 dudes in the studio with a sparse but effective bassline for a beat, affecting all the subtlety of a gun in your mouth. The remix, however, is a sinister swirl of Rhodes and sleighbell (yes!) and some of Buckwild's finest drums, the snare louder than anything on "Word…Life". Pharoahe and Prince Po modulate the hook into a mini verse "…YOU CAN SET MY MODE TO WHATEVA!!!" turning it into more of a challenge than a threat. This remix is the Gambino mastermind to the original's gully stick-up kid. The verses are pure heat: Pharoahe gained weight for this one, dropping science with stylistic twists that demand rewinds. Incidentally, it's this verse that Many Styles got his name from.

Prince Po rocks his verse up and down with vicious aplomb, changing it up slightly from the album cut. Check the "lobby…rob me…hobby…" rhyme scheme that Bigg Jus later used in "Bad Touch Example". Coincidence? Maybe. IMO Organized Konfusion is the greatest rap group ever except for maybe Wu Tang. This song makes me want to break shit. The remix was pressed up by Organized in small batches with a dirty, a clean, inst and acapella tracks.
