The Path Organization (The Path) is an American Hip Hop group that is led by Rapper, Producer & DJ Drastic B. The group was formed in Brooklyn, New York, in 1993. The group's brand of hip hop is fusion, mixing Classical, Latin, Funk, Soul, Jazz, Pop, Rock and other genres of music while delivering East Coast style lyrics.

When the single flopped locally Drastic B. retired The Path name.
