Like De La Soul's Three Feet High & Rising, the Pharcyde's 1992 debut came at a time when hip-hop was headed in one direction, but the group was going somewhere else entirely. A crew of spunky b-boys armed with a self-deprecating sense of humor, the Pharcyde made an album that was fresh and profoundly honest. "Ya Mama" is a clever array of mother jokes set to cartoonish beats; "On the DL" has each MC unguardedly making self-denigrating confessions (like Fat Lip admitting to masturbating--previously a hip-hop no-no); and "Passin' Me By" is an ode to hopeless crushes on unattainable women. The group's playfulness was also infused with smarts, too, most visibly on "Officer." Recorded around the time of the Rodney King verdict, the song was an indictment of racial profiling--shrouded, of course, in a comic tale that parodied Public Enemy's "Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos." With animated beats from J-Swift (the West Coast version of Prince Paul) and four distinct rhyming styles, particularly Slim Kid Tre's melodiousness and Fat Lip's nerdiness, this album captures an innocence rarely seen in the music's posturing ways. It's something that this album captures forever. --Joseph Patel --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Personal Favorites: On The D.L., Soul Flower (Remix), Ya Mama, Passing Me By, Otha Fish, Return Of The B Boy (My Favorite), & Officer
There's also many short songs that are just hilarious like "It's Jiggaboo Time" and a song about their drug dealer coming over "Quinton's on his Way". It sounds like a bunch of guys just having a great time in the studio. It's a shame a few years later things feel apart for this group, but they grew up and got older and lost alot of their passion to just have fun along the way. Most people might never give this album a chance because it is a hip hop album and alot of people don't have appriciation for hip hop. If you actually sit down and listen to the words, you'll recognize why this album is a feel good yet at the same time depressing classic.
As to Bizarre Ride II, it's several years old but remains an all-time fav... absolutely timeless. Its easy to relate to and doesnt take itself too seriously. The silly "boys will be boys" hijinks and self-deprecating humor that play out on this cd is similiar to the P-Funk madness that I enjoyed many years ago. I pulled it from the bins today to reminisce and ended up listening to it twice. I'm especially impressed with the tracks (the live and samples combo), the production overall is inventive and fresh. One of my favorites is 4 Better or 4 Worse, though the lyrics (for some ;oP) leave a bit to be desired the track itself was one of the best of the decade. Other favs include On The DL, Passing Me By, Pack The Pipe and Return of the BBoy. If you dont already have it, this is a MUST... a necessary addition to any hip-hop fans collection.
"Officer" is my favorite song, I love the beat and the lyrics are so crazy. When Phat Lip starts it out (mis)quoting a famous Chuck D line "I got a letter from the DMV, the other day... I opened and read it, it said they was suckas!" Is so classic, 10 years after I first heard it, I still smile at that one. The song has the illest story, it's funny as hell. As emcees, they shine, being as silly as they are, you have to have real skills to hold anybodies intrest. And silliness aside, they were true B-Boys, who have much ability on the mic. The lighthearted, relaxed vibe this album has is perfect when you want to get away from "the world" Mostly every track is a standout. Even the skits are good. "Quinton's on his Way" is redlicious. I have heard it probably 500 times, but it still manages to amuse me. This is a MUST OWN album, regardless of if you're 30 and remember it when it dropped, or 20 and never heard of Pharcyde (shame on you!Read more ›

Always loved this album production/ lyric wise, and it still sounds frest today. If only there were still groups like this out now, then the hip hop scene wouldn't seem so lame.Published on Jan. 7 2013 by Old rap head.
