Bobbito Garcia Talks Serato + Rejected Organized Konfusion Demo Tape

August 29, 2008

"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!

great interview – longtime fan from the midwest. I just started a blog and have been ripping a lot of freestyle sessions from Stretch and Bobbito that I hope people will appreciate – hiphopdubs.blogspot.com
