“Stress” is the lead single off Organized Konfusion’s second album Stress: The Extinction Agenda (1994).
For Stress: The Extinction Agenda Organized Konfusion’s Prince Po and Pharoahe Monch went outside past self-production and got help from future star producers Buckwild and Rockwilder. The album features O.C. and A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip. The album’s tone is generally darker than that of its predecessor, with subject matter falling under the album’s title.
The album cover was painted by the late Matt Reid AKA Matt Doo of Dooable Arts, who later committed suicide. Prince Po later would later write “Be Easy”, a song dedicated to him from his album The Slickness. He also designed the cover for Company Flow’s seminal Funcrusher Plus.
