And even more recently Peter Holslin of Spin Magazine profiled Gonja Sufi, and nonetheless had this to say about Orko and his So-Cal legacy
“Orko (who now goes by Orko Eloheim) rapped at extreme velocity, advancing Afrofuturist philosophies and psychedelic mental travels. He dismissed mass media as “tel lie vision,” subverted inner-city stereotypes by rapping about the “rhyme rate” instead of the “crime rate,” and made the grimiest beats possible on an outdated Ensoniq Mirage sampler keyboard. According to Ecks and the Gaslamp Killer, during open mics Orko would snatch the mic right out of your hand if you were delivering a subpar performance. Touring hip-hop artists who came through town ran the risk of getting their stages hijacked by Orko and his crew, the Masters of the Universe.”
Orko Eloheim is an avant-garde emcee-producer-artist hailing from the Southern California hip hop underground. He mixes the virtuosity of John Coltrane with the psychedelic approach of Jimmy Hendrix, combined with the afro-futuristic sound of Sun Ra. With more than 20 projects under his belt, he’s worked prolific artists such as Bigg Jus, Aceyalone, Saul Williams, Gonjasufi, and Rick Rubin.
