Marco Polo’s ‘3-O-Clock’ Video Reunites Organized Konfusion
Marco Polo has fulfilled the dreams of underground hip-hop enthusiasts around the world by reuniting Organized Konfusion for '3-O-Clock.'
Seeing Pharoahe Monch and Prince Po together is a surreal moment. The two last released an album together as a duo back in 1997, when they put out 'The Equinox.' The two stand side-by-side inside a city bus and outside of the Port Authority bus terminal, a fitting location to film this video for Marco, who is preparing to release his 'PA 2: The Director's Cut' album, a sequel to his debut producer album that was titled after 'Port Authority.'
While Pharoahe's verse finds the veteran showcasing his lyrical dexterity and immense vocabulary, Prince Po's verse is a narrative tale about a woman trying to escape a serious predicament. In the end, it all ties back to the bus station, bringing the story full circle. The video, directed by The Doppelgangaz, does an excellent job bringing this tale to life in the second half of the video.
'PA 2: The Director's Cut' is slated for release on November 12. The album will have appearances from Large Professor, O.C., Gangrene (Alchemist & Oh No), Kardinall Offishall, and Talib Kweli. The full tracklist is below the video.
