Product Description


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.

The Pharcyde's 1992 debut came out during the golden era of hip hop ('87 - '96), so a lot of the stuff coming out was classic or close to it. This crew of b-boys came out of Cali with a sound that wasn't gangsta. In fact, it was quite the opposite. These cats was funny, and they could rhyme with the best of them. All of the beats were supplied by J-Swift (except "Otha Fish") who supplied The Pharcyde with a sound that was as different as they were. They each had their own distinct rhyme style too, particularly Slim Kid Tre's standout harmonic yet laid back flow. But that's not to downplay Fat Lip's nerd-like admissions that also complimented Imani and Bootie Brown to perfection. If you're just getting into Pharcyde, you should go cop this if you haven't already. It's not quite a classic, but it comes pretty close to it. It's definitely essential listening for any hip hop head.
Personal Favorites: On The D.L., Soul Flower (Remix), Ya Mama, Passing Me By, Otha Fish, Return Of The B Boy (My Favorite), & Officer

This has remained my favorite album as long as I can remember. It's going to be tough to knock this out of #1. This is a hip hop album from 1992. As a teen I was always the kid who admired some girl who always failed to notice me, which is why the song "Passin' Me By" from this album is my favorite song of all time. The song immediately following is "4 Otha Fish", which is about just dealing with rejection and it's telling you that there is other fish in the sea. It's rare to find rappers who talk about love and relationships without making it completely degrading. This album is also very humor filled. The song "Oh Sh*t" is the different members of the group getting themselves into sticky situations that would make you say "Oh Sh*t". For example, one of the members is making out with a girl , which turns out to be a guy. It also has a song about crusin' the neighborhood with a suspended licesnse. "Officer", keeping secrets "On the D.L.", of course a weed song "Pack The Pipe", and a humorous song about yo' mama jokes called "Ya Mama".
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.

I would give anything to hear from these guys again (or someone like them). I've always LOVED hip-hop... and I've heard it all. I was a teen back in the days of Grandmaster Flash, Sequence and The Sugarhill Gang. The problem is that I'm so utterly and completely BORED with this bling-bling, P-Diddy, "Playa's, Ho's and B's" trifle that's passing for hip-hop these days. How about something positive... uplifting... thought-provoking... hell at least funny and not so dark and corrupt... something NEW!
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.

You can't beat this album, durring a time when everyone acted like a gangsta. And being harder then the next man was the idea. It was so re-freshing to hear this album. It's permenitly on my top 10 album list. It was so cool how they didn't seem to care what anybody thought about them. Being able to be goofy like this on record was a nice change of scenery (at that time) Sure, Biz Markie did it, as did a few others. But, this was a group of fools! They never take themselves too seriously, there are a few moments, where they dip into a real topic, Passing Me By is a good example. A very mellow song about love, with one of the best samples ever (Quincy Jones) But, they flipped it at the very end and added a sample of somebody burping, throwing the entire song off.
"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!
